Easy & tasty turmeric tea recipe for weight loss, immunity & cough

Yes, that coy spice ever ready to grace your food with some tint of natural yellow coloring & is, indeed, a treasure chest of amazing wonders, remedies & benefits altogether.

While I swear by turmeric in my DIY methods to fight acne breakouts must really admit swearing by turmeric in positively effectuating my weight loss journey apart from always being in my arsenal of home remedies.

This turmeric tea was one of the most beautiful elements of my fat loss. I continued to see a steady drop in the unwanted weight, even towards the 2nd month, while most of us assume that the drop isn’t going to be much significant once you lose those 5-6 kilos of water weight!

Turmeric tea - for weight loss & gut health


Turmeric – The ultimate Indian spice that probably has the solution to every common illness. Be it skin problems like acne, cuts & bruises where it acts as a tailor-made antiseptic, or even common cold.

If a quick video recipe is what you’re looking for, here it is.

What makes this turmeric tea so healthy?

Turmeric – Well, this super available spice from our kitchen oozes with a magical substance – CURCUMIN. Curcumin is an anti-obesity & anti-inflammatory compound. Hence, this accelerates weight loss by boosting your metabolism to levels that even your favorite green tea cannot boast of! BTW, you may want to read if the popular ‘weight-loss’ drinks really work. Ta-dah!

Cinnamon – This underrated spice not just seasons your food with a rich flavor & aroma, but also speeds up metabolism by curbing that naughty appetite & normalizing blood sugar. Now anything that helps you keep that binge-urge in check is definitely a BONUS. Ain’t it?

Clove – Cloves work complementary to cinnamon in regulating blood sugar levels thereby improving metabolism.

Pepper – Black peppercorns are known to be thermogenic. Meaning they produce heat in the body, further boosting your metabolism; burning fat & preventing fat accumulation.

Ginger – Well, the ability of ginger to ease digestion has never been a mystery to us. Besides, anything with ginger tea acts as a mind-blowing stimulant just like your dose of coffee. This helps you see a much active version of yourself everyday.

And like all the other ingredients, this magical potion literally boils down to one crucial weight loss factor. METABOLISM!

Being an ardent CHAI-lover, I must admit that none of my mornings have kicked off without a cup of the normal ginger tea with milk & some jaggery. Also, winding up for the day has never been so happy & refreshing the way it is with this turmeric tea or coffee.

What you also need to know about drinking Turmeric Tea

  • TURMERIC TEA is a ‘value-added’ regime to your weight-loss. NOT the ONLY way. So, remember to shake those kilos with some exercise & clean eating every day.
  • Avoid having turmeric tea for more than 3 or 4 days in a week as it may lead to mild acidity or dehydration to those already susceptible to it, or those who drink less than 2 litres of water a day.

By the way, I was recently introduced to the Vaya POPcup tumbler and if you’re looking at options to carry your hot or cold beverages on the go, I would really want to recommend it to you.

Turmeric tea that can be carried on the go

Besides being available in bewitching colors, the interior body is also quite impressive with a vacuum-insulated, food-grade stainless steel. Equivalent to thermos flasks, this helps in retaining a constant temperature of hot or cold beverages or soups for at least 2 hours.

Check out the range of these insulated tumblers, for a better overview, if you’re interested in grabbing a tumbler or a set for yourself.
