Turmeric Chai Tea

This recipe is enough for 2 cups but I tripled it so I can use it all week. If you are uncertain about these spices I suggest you add small amounts and sip your way to perfection one spice at a time … just be sure you write down the amounts you like. Making a larger amount takes the same amount of time but you won't have to make it again so soon!

If you love this as much as I do you could put all the spices together in a glass jar (enough for however much concentrate you want to make) and have that part ready to go!
