Cardamom Cinnamon Turmeric Iced Tea

I know it’s getting cooler in most of the country, but it’s still hot in South Florida. I’m still craving cold drinks because of the heat, but I also want to get into the Fall spirit. This Cardamom Cinnamon Turmeric Iced Tea sounded like it would fulfill both of my cravings. That, and the Chocolate Chai Tea Cupcakes I made earlier this week. Can you tell I have chai on my mind?

What do you do when its too hot but you are craving some masala chai. Make Iced Masala Chai! And then since you are a blogger, you amp it up with turmeric milk to make Turmeric Iced Tea ;).

The Ingredients

This Cardamom Cinnamon Turmeric Iced Tea recipe has a lot of options both in what ingredients to use and the quantity. I went with the maximum amount for the chai spice tea:

  • 3 cups of water
  • 2 teaspoons of loose tea
  • 2 tablespoons of regular sugar

And for the turmeric milk:

  • Coconut milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • Regular sugar

Don’t have chai spice on hand? You probably have the ingredients. I used the DIY Chai Spice Mix recipe at Fit Foodie Finds.

The Process

Making Cardamom Cinnamon Turmeric Iced Tea has 3 major steps: brewing the tea, making the turmeric milk, then combining the two for the finished drink.

The chai tea was very quick and easily strained with a mesh colander. I did notice some fine sediment in the bottom of the pitcher, and it made the tea a little cloudy when stirred. Lining the colander with cheesecloth would probably keep the sediment out. This step took 8 1/2 minutes.

The turmeric milk was even easier to make. I took the author’s advice and heated the coconut milk to better incorporate the spices. I already had to chill the tea, so chilling the milk with it wasn’t going to take any longer. This step took 5 minutes.

Finally, mixing the two together to make the finished drink produced the lovely yellow swirls you see in the picture. I did give it a stir before I drank it to blend the flavors.

A Personal Note About Turmeric

Not only do I enjoy the taste of turmeric, but I also eat it for the health benefits. It’s one of several ways I treat inflammation, and probably the most enjoyable! Turmeric is an amazing herb that also offers many other benefits explained in this article. It turns out I have been using turmeric to treat several issues without realizing it 🙂 I hope you find it as informative as I did!

So how was it?

Clear & Accurate Directions

This tea is a refreshing blend of cool and spicy. The turmeric milk adds a slightly creamy texture. It was an interesting addition to iced tea, and I loved the change. I also gave it a try with a shot of spiced rum, and it was terrific! I'm not a big rum drinker, but it went very well with this tea. It's a nice summer drink with or without the rum, and the spices give it a little bit of a Fall feeling.
