I have wanted to create a tea that could be called a ‘tasty tea’ with turmeric in it for quite some time.
Partly because I love turmeric, and partly because I know there are people out there who seek it as a component of tea. Making one that was approached first for taste, and only secondly as a medicinal – it amused me and made me happy.
The impetus for finally making it was seeing a candy in the checkout line at Whole Foods. Chocolate. Turmeric.
I couldn’t believe I hadn’t thought of it before.
The idea percolated and solidified in my head, but I still hadn’t actually settled down to blend it. Then came a day where I ended up at an Urgent Care for the ongoing hand issues and a cold that would not let up… and she was open to the fact that I use herbal medicine, and actually knew enough about herbs to offer useful opinions.
She also told me to “do everything anti-inflammatory that you can” and encouraged me to finally get around to making this tea.
A couple of days after that visit, I finally blended the test batch. It was lovely.
I fixated on the idea of attaching it to Miracle Max fairly immediately, as the miracle pill was chocolate, and turmeric has been hailed as sort of a miracle root. (I do not think it is a magic wand, but I do find it immensely useful.) Mister Tea and I have wanted to salute ‘The Princess Bride’ for quite some time, and this tea gave us the perfect opportunity.
