As the title suggests, this tea blend will give you an extra boost of vitality, energy, and will kickstart your metabolism! Turmeric is a warming spice which increases body heat, and can boost your metabolism. It’s also been said that turmeric can help fight off Alzheimer’s disease and keep your hormones in balance when you’re on your monthly cycle.
What makes this drink even more powerful is the presence of cumin, which also jumpstarts your metabolism and can help you burn more body fat than you would normally without it. Start your day with this blend and help your body take care of itself!

TURMERIC AND CUMIN VITALI-TEA
Makes 1 glass // Prep Time: 5 minutes // Active Time: 5 minutes
- 1 cup filtered water
- 1 rounded up tsp loose leaf or 1 sachet/bag turmeric tea (we love using Tipson's Turmeric Vanilla & Cinnamon tea for extra sweetness!)
- A pinch of ground cumin
- Freshly squeezed lemon juice (optional)
Heat water to 212°F and steep tea for 3-5 minutes (cover your tea as it steeps to keep all the goodness from escaping!).
Remove (strain) tea and add in the pinch of cumin and lemon juice to taste. You can use pre-ground cumin or grind your own cumin seeds with a mortar and pestle or coffee-grinder dedicated to spices.
Stir well and drink while it's hot. Although the savory spice flavor may take a while to get used to, the health benefits from this brew are phenomenal. Enjoy!
