This recipe does require a little prep, but then you will have all those bright yellow turmeric ice cubes just waiting to be made into this warming anti-inflammatory drink. This recipe makes about 12 medium-sized ice cubes and I use one cube for a small mug and two for a large one. Drink up!

This tea does require a stir or two as the turmeric and ginger will settle to the bottom.

For those not use to turmeric or ginger's strong flavourful, I recommend starting with one cube.
