Golden​ ​Milk​ ​Tea

A guest recipe by Marti Wolfson.

Serves 4

4 2" pieces fresh turmeric grated (or 4 teaspoons dried ground turmeric)
2 2" pieces fresh ginger grated
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 cups water
4 teaspoons honey
1/2 cup almond milk (optional)

Combine the turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, and pepper in a small bowl.  Bring the water to boil.  Turn off the heat.  Add 1 heaping teaspoon of the turmeric mixture directly into the water and steep for 5 minutes.

Using a fine mesh strainer*, strain the tea into a heat-safe container and stir in the honey and milk.

Store the remaining spice mixture in a glass container and keep in the refrigerator for up to a week.

VARIATION: Another option of steeping the tea is to use a loose tea bag. Fill the loose tea bag with 2 teaspoons of the turmeric mixture and steep in the hot water for 5 minutes. Then add the honey and milk.
