Turmeric Tea Benefits

In another post, I showed you common signs of a stressed and overworked liver.  In today’s toxic and chemically filled world, I think it’s extremely important to provide the building blocks your body needs so it can detox properly and eliminate these harmful toxins. 


Our air is toxic, our food is toxic, our water is toxic, and the list goes on. This makes our liver overburdened, stressed and overworked trying to keep up with the onslaught of toxins that get thrown at it daily. When our liver can’t keep up with our toxic load, toxins accumulate in the body. In fact, studies shows that 100 percent of human fat cell biopsies reveal elevated levels of known toxins. And that’s a big problem because as a result, our health suffers in major ways!


Mary Vance, holistic nutritionist and author of Three Weeks to Vitality says,

Toxic overload creates an acidic internal environment and has been impli­cated in a number of diseases, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic fatigue, allergies, skin conditions, asthma, mental illness, hyper­tension, gastritis, kidney disease and obesity. Studies are beginning to reveal that toxic overload contributes to more serious conditions such as autoimmune diseases, inflammatory/rheumatoid arthritis, and neuro­logical disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.”


Saying no to processed foods and chemically filled personal care and cleaning products are the best things you can do to reduce your toxic load and keep your liver strong and healthy.

In addition to not eating processed foods and using more natural personal care and cleaning products, you can also detox your liver by using herbs and spices that support the body’s detox pathways.

Providing your body with liver supportive herbs and spices is a wonderful way to detox your liver. Did you know that turmeric is a powerful liver cleansing spice? Incorporating this spice into your nutrition will help support and detoxify your liver and provide potent anti-inflammatory benefits!

There are many delicious ways to incorporate turmeric into your life. You can even take turmeric pills (THESE are the ones I take). But my very favorite way to incorporate turmeric in my diet is by making a tasty and comforting turmeric tea. It’s slightly sweet, slightly spicy and extremely delicious. It tastes very similar to a chai tea. Turmeric tea is a delightful way to heal, cleanse and detoxify your body and liver. But that’s not all! Turmeric is even said to be the world’s most important spice because of the long list of health benefits.


Other benefits of Turmeric Tea:

  • Detoxifies body and liver
  • Boosts immunity by improving liver function
  • protects liver tissue
  • Cleanses and purifies the blood
  • Eases symptoms of coughs and colds
  • Improves circulation in the body
  • Improves skin complexion
  • Prevents internal blood clotting
  • Reduces bad cholesterol
  • Reduces inflammation – all types of arthritis and other inflammation
  • Stimulates secretion of bile which helps break down fat


Ingredients for Detox Turmeric Tea

I included ingredients that not only make this tea taste absolutely delicious, but every ingredient is chosen to maximize nutrients and absorption, and to help detoxify and rid the body of inflammation.

Fresh Turmeric

Turmeric is a powerful liver and body cleanser. Turmeric is also a very effective anti-inflammatory. Studies like these show turmeric is more effective at providing anti-inflammatory relief than taking NSAID’s and other drugs.

Fresh Ginger

Turmeric combined with ginger doubles the anti-inflammatory results. Ginger also works wonders for headaches, joint pain, and arthritis, especially rheumatoid arthritis. Ginger is a very effective digestive aid.

Black Pepper  

Sources agree that piperine in black pepper maximizes the benefits of turmeric and helps our body absorb it better.


Cinnamon contains anti-inflammatory properties.

Coconut milk 

The fats in the coconut milk help enhance turmeric nutrient absorption. These medium chain fatty acids also get used immediately as energy for your body and aren’t easily stored as fat. These extremely healthy and beneficial fats also keep you full longer and actually protect against heart disease and cardiovascular disease.

Raw Honey 

Raw honey is rich in enzymes, vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants and helps promote digestive health.


Although you can use ground turmeric and ginger for this tea, I personally do not recommend it because you may not like the taste. Fresh turmeric and fresh ginger have exceptional flavor and tastes very different from their ground counterparts. More and more stores are carrying fresh turmeric. If your local store does not carry fresh turmeric, you can order it HERE. I would also encourage you to ask your grocery store manager if they would consider carrying it. You can usually find fresh turmeric in most ethnic grocery stores, too.

Turmeric Tea: A Liver Detox Tea
Serves: 1
Turmeric Tea, a powerful liver cleansing tonic
  1. Fill mug halfway full with boiling water.
  2. Add in turmeric and ginger.
  3. Cover and let steep for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Stir in cinnamon, black pepper, vanilla and honey.
  5. Fill the rest of the mug with coconut milk and stir.
  6. Enjoy!
You may strain the pieces of turmeric and ginger out if you wish. I grate mine very finely and leave them in.

    Thank you so much for this recipe! I made it tonight, but only had ground turmeric and ginger. It was delicious!! I’m going to continue drinking it every day in hopes that it will ease my achy joints!

    I love, love, love your blog!!! Such a wealth of information 🙂

    • Avatar

      If you have achy joints or the beginning of arthritis, drink only distilled water and take boron tablets. Do a Google search on “The Borax Conspiracy”. I use 1/4 tsp of “20 Mule Team” borax dissolved in hot water and then add it to my daily 2 litres / 1/2 gallon of distilled water. Easy and pleasant to drink. Works like a charm. 🙂 Check out “Earth Clinic” for many natural remedies for many health issues.

        My understanding is that borax can contribute to birth defects. I’ve come across this as a vaginal suppository for yeast infections – it can work well, but a teratogenic (causes birth defects). Check into this if you’re thinking of drinking Borax.

    YUMM!… who knew?!.. this is delicious.. am going ‘extra clean’ for a month.. so no coffee… after tasting this i may never go back to coffee.. it is so smooth and best chai taste i have ever had.
    I used 1Tbl of coconut oil instead of the milk.. and used liquid Stevia to taste instead of the honey..I put it in my blender/vitamix to emulsify the oil.. and it makes the roots so fine i dont need to strain it…. i even forgot the vanilla and it is still delish!..
    I had a hard time finding the root.. but finally found it at an Indian/Pakistan grocery store (Cash & Carry)$3.50 /lb
    THank you!…
    (I have been taking a organic tumeric capsule daily and it has really helped with a lingual nerve damage i got by a bad Novocain injection).. i love tumeric.!

    Thank you so much for so thoroughly presenting each ingredient in this article! I just learned of the INNUMERABLE health benefits of turmeric about 6 months ago from a woman from Germany that worked in natural healing research and development. I asked her what ONE ITEM should I be taking/eating daily & she recommended TURMERIC. My genetic risks include cancer & arthritis and I aim to avoid both!
    I was surprised to see so little info on cinnamon in your article as it also is so powerful in multiple ways, I especially appreciate it’s blood sugar regulation properties.
    Thanks again, Kelly! I have been reading many of your articles and do appreciate your input into my family’s health journey. May God bless you, Penny

    • Primally Inspired

      Hi Penny! Thanks so much for your comment!! Turmeric is amazing and I’ve noticed some wonderful benefits from making it a point to include it in my diet each day! And I totally agree on cinnamon – it’s amazing!!! Cinnamon is another food I make a point to eat everyday. I especially try to include a bit on all my sweet treats to help with blood sugar regulation, too 🙂

    I have to admit I was wrinkling my nose through the first half of this article… thinking, but I don’t *like* turmeric. Delicious? Really?
    I had never thought to use FRESH turmeric. (Okay, I’ve never looked for it either.)
    Luckily we have a really excellent Indian grocery store in our neighborhood! And we are planning a trip there later this afternoon!
    I’m excited to try a turmeric tea that actually tastes good! 🙂
    Thanks for this!

    Have you ever heard of anyone being allergic to turmeric? Whenever my mother would do her canning with turmeric I couldn’t stand to be in the house! The smell made it very hard for me to breathe I had to go outside! I’m allergic to other things, but I am very interested in trying turmeric because of all the other things I’m allergic too that causes inflammation! Ergh..

    For those readers who can’t use black pepper, I read an article just today about turmeric (actually about Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric), and it said that ghee will also make itmore bio-available, especially to the brain. So, incorporating ghee in the recipe could take the place of the pepper, I believe.
    Will be trying this recipe, thanks!

    Hello! I just found your website this weekend and I am addicted! I just made this tea tonight, though I only had ground turmeric. I agree the taste was a bit strong, but still delicious! I can definitely sign on to making this once a day! Thanks and keep the good advice coming!

    Fresh turmeric makes ALL the difference! I love this tea – it’s so warm and cozy. I usually can’t tolerate the taste of tumeric, but the use of fresh, grated tumeric, along with the other yummy ingredients make this tea very enjoyable. I grate the ginger and tumeric straight into a piece of cheese clothe rather than straining it out after. Drink up — the health benefits of tumeric are too great to ignore! Thanks for the recipe!

  26. Avatar

    Silly question, but what is your method for peeling and grating the root without turning yourself and everything around you yellow? I’m just starting out with it, and I feel like there must be a way, I just haven’t found it yet. 🙂 Thanks!

    • Primally Inspired

      Jennifer, I hear you! That is so annoying and I wish I found a way around it, but I haven’t. What I’ve been doing (as to limit getting yellow every single day) is making a mass batch of turmeric and ginger in my vitamix (or food processor or even hand chopper). I get 1 lb of turmeric, 1/2 pound of ginger and peel it all at one time. I put in in my vitamix and it grates it perfectly! Then I portion it out in little ice cube trays to freeze. Then transfer the little cubes to a freezer safe container. It seems like a pain, but I have perfectly portioned turmeric/ginger that last me a month or more! It’s so nice to just reach in the freezer and have my little turmeric/ginger cubes ready to go every morning (and no yellow fingers lol). I hope that helps and if anyone else can figure out how to not get everything yellow, I would give you a virtual fist bump!!!

        I pound tumeric root with the flat side of a meat pounder under two sheets of wax paper, then slide it into my tea strainer. No yellow hands.

        Hi Kelly!
        I just made this for my mom and I for the first time (I saw this post ages ago but haven’t found fresh tumeric until 2 days ago). It was really delicious–I only had almond milk–but I’m sure it would be even better with creamier coconut milk.
        I used rubber gloves for peeling and grating, but the most amazing thing happened during clean-up: when we couldn’t get the orange goo off the grater and cutting board, my mom suggested that active-oxy powder (like Vanish or Oxy clean) and it instantly turned the orange to a deep red and completely removed it from all the surfaces! It was like a fun chemistry experiment!
        I hope that’s helpful to anyone that winds up with an orange mess!
        Love your site, I’ve been a fan for a while! xx

    I used my NutriBullet to make the tea. Worked GREAT! Peeled the turmeric and ginger and placed it in the smaller of the cups. Poured boiling water on top. Attached the NutriBullet milling blade. Ran the machine for a minute. It pulverized the ginger and turmeric. Let it sit for 10 minutes. Then add the additional ingredients and run it again. Viola!

    Easy peasy!

    Although now the cup is slightly yellow, but I don’t mind.

    • Primally Inspired

      Hi Chaeles! You certainly don’t have to peel. I like the taste of it peeled better, but to be honest, I’m going to try to learn to like it unpeeled because it would make this tea soooo much easier to make.

      And yes, putting it in the Vitamix is a great idea.

    I juice a fresh turmeric and mix it with lemon and honey, it taste so good but the stain is so hard to get rid….. even my hands and fingernails turned yellow until i run out of dishwashing liquid and i use laundry detergent powder and to my surprise it just disappear like magic especially on ceramics and glasses but on plastic wares its a little bit stubborn but i soak it with detergent powder with bleach overnight and it helps a lot. The tea taste so good.

    Hello I was recently told I have inflammation and a fatty liver. I’m choosing not to take western medication. Can you share any information on the benefits after a diagnosis. Does the tea possibly removes the fat during the detoxification? Can I include this tea in my daily diet or is there a time period I should not drink? Sorry for so many question, want to have the full benefit.

    I might have missed it, but how does the pure vanilla play into the benefits of this tea (or is it more for taste)? I have been drinking the turmeric tea regularly and love it/recommend it to many, but wondered about skipping the vanilla while traveling because my bottle doesn’t seal very well.

  42. Avatar

    Hi! Thanks for the recipe. I just recently decided to add turmeric to my diet on a regular basis to help with fat burning as well as other health benefits. As I wanted to make it right away, I used organic ground turmeric, and it tastes fine to me, with a double dose of sweetener (honey/xylitol). I used coconut oil in place of coconut milk. I think I’m going to be making this frequently!

            Hi Kelly, I found your site several weeks ago while searching the web for ways to ease my chronic & sometime debilitating back pain naturally. I have Degenerative Disc Disease & severe arthritis. I usually go to pain management 4 times a year to receive epidural steroid injections, and would like to eliminate them! I’ve recently developed a stomach ulcer from way too much Ibuprofen to ease my pain. I purchased all the ingredients your recipe required and made a batch that lasts me perfectly for 3 days.(I don’t mind the yellow fingers, haha) It’s been 3 weeks and I am noticing quite a decrease in my back pain, especially in the AM. I was just telling my husband tonight that I am going to hold off on getting my next shot. I am definitely feeling less pain since I have been drinking this tea. I love chai tea and that’s just what it tastes like! I’ve also noticed an increase in my energy level, not to mention the house smells so cozy when I’m simmering this concoction! I also have a slightly fatty liver so over time and diet changes I’m hoping to see better results with my next liver scan. Right now I just know this tea is helping with my pain. I love your site, thank you! (sorry this is so long I’m just feeling excited & hopeful with my results so far)

    I finally found fresh turmeric at Wegmans and tried this as an after dinner drink. Amazing! I really love the taste and it is very warming, which is great as the weather is really starting to change. I was reading the comments and love your idea of doing a big batch of the ground tumeric/ginger and freezing. Will have to buy larger quantities of tumeric and try that. Thanks for the great recipe!

    • Primally Inspired

      I agree, Elizabeth – so yummy and warming!

      Also, just another update since I love this tea so much and drink it every day and am always trying to find ways to make it easier to make:
      I’ve been throwing both the ginger and the turmeric with the skin still on in my food processor (shredder attachment) and it tastes the same, even with the skin on! After, the turmeric and ginger are shredded, I dump in a bunch of cinnamon, black pepper and vanilla beans. I have no measurements as of now because I’m totally a “dumper” when I cook and use my nose to tell if it needs more of anything (but can you really go wrong with too much cinnamon and vanilla?? — I think not haha). Then I freeze a weeks worth of the mixture (about a heaping 1/3 cup) in little plastic baggies. I just get a new baggie out of the freezer each week and keep it in the fridge to last me the whole week. It’s such an easy way of doing it.

      The last time I made it, I used about a pound and a half of turmeric and it made enough to last me about 4 months!

      And just a warning for those reading —> It does turn the food processor cup slightly yellow. I believe there’s a comment in here about how to get the yellow off, but just wanted to warn anyone reading this, that it does stain.

    Just a heads up about turmeric. Turmeric in large doses taken with other medications can lead to liver failure. My mom is a diabetic and it cross reacted with her glucose managing meds. She ended up in the ICU and nearly died. It’s important to check with a doctor before giving this one a try.

    I think this sounds delicious! It will be difficult for me to find fresh turmeric locally, and taxing to make at times if I am having a bad day healthwise – with these very issues turmeric is good for. I am just learning about it. I wonder if the dried powder in capsule form is more concentrated. I could take that when I can’t manage the tea. Along with ginger and cinnamon. What do you think, and do you have any favorites? Thanks for sharing. I needed this right now. I was getting discouraged.

    Hi! Really excited about the potential benefits of drinking some version of Turmeric tea. Does everything HAVE to be “organic” to reap any of the benefits? I made a version from a recipe I found on YouTube that sounded palatable and it was made from all ground ingredients (typical grocery store spices). No mention was made about anything being organic by the author. I am a relatively healthy (if a bit overweight and with 57 year old aches) so I am not in need of a miracle just trying to get away from pills where possible… Strangely I am usually turned off by any sort of “bitter” flavor but found the combination of spices used to be quite tasty…I even remarked to my sister that I might be able to replace my cup of coffee in the morning with this….if you would like to know my combo I’ll post it… I did notice that you’ve said that pepper s crucial for the turmeric to work properly or did I misinterpret? Oh and some sort of soluble fat like coconut oil? Thanks for any additional info!

    • Primally Inspired

      Hi Tootercat! No, it definitely doesn’t have to be organic to reap the benefits! I like purchasing organic for a wide variety of personal reasons, but you will still get all of the benefits even if not organic. I can totally relate to you when you wrote that you may be able to replace your morning coffee with this – I find something about this turmeric tea so comforting and delicious. I love drinking it in the morning and in the evening.

      Yes, the black pepper and some sort of soluble fat (coconut oil would be great!) does assist in the body’s absorption of turmeric’s beneficial properties.

      I’d really love to hear your combination of spices, too!

    I totally forgot about this delicious tea until today. I have candida overgrowth and my doctor recommended tumeric for it’s anti-inflammatory properties and I thought “Oh yea! I need to make that tea!” Drinking a cup now, it’s sooo delicious and so good for me. I can’t believe I forgot about this awesome recipe. Thank you so much for sharing it.

    And I use dried tumeric and ginger because aint nobody got time to grind em fresh! 😉 And it’s so easy to replace that morning cup of coffee with this using dried. Love it.

      Nice!! The past year I’ve been making a huuuuuge batch at one time – processing 1 lb turmeric, 1/2 lb ginger (skin still on both!), and a few vanilla beans in a food processor all at once and then freezing the paste in baggies. It makes it SO much easier and it makes enough to last a few months! Because you are so right – ain’t nobody got time to grind that stuff fresh everyday! Good luck on your candida healing, Katy!

    Try fresh grated Tumeric, Ginger, Lemon rind and dried licorice root to taste. Make it in your coffee plunger, my wife and I love it. A truly refreshing and satisfying drink!!

    For years I have been suffering from fatty liver problem. Though I don’t have any other medical issues, I used to suffer from severe body pain, poor appetite. eczema , skin allergies.

    Recently, about a week back I started drinking tea made from fresh turmeric, ginger, pepper and molasses. I am so thankful for this wonderful tea, within 5 days my body pain reduced by 50%, Upper abdominal pain reduced by 40%. Hopefully it will help to heal my skin condition. I’ve been sharing the good news with my family and friends.

    I drank this tea this morning and now I have diarrhea. Has anyone else experienced this?

    How bad is it to just use grounded turmeric? I can’t find a fresh one in my shops and I’m not from the states so. 🙂 I usually just take one teaspoon of grounded turmeric and strain it plain. It’s so good and warm just on its own!

      That’s perfect, Mari! Ground turmeric will still provide all the wonderful health benefits. I just happen to enjoy the taste of fresh turmeric better, but that’s just a personal preference. Enjoy!

        That’s good! Do you know if it’s ok to do multiple steeps? My mugs are quite big and like I said, I usually use one small teaspoon and steep it twice. Could that be too much? Love your blog! 🙂

    I made this and I loved it. I hadn’t used turmeric in a tea for ages so I thought it was about time to start again. Thanks for a great detox tea recipe.
