Hi, my name is Joey Papa. I'm a coffee consultant, and today we're going to talk about making turmeric tea. Now, turmeric is typically a spice that's used in a lot of Far Eastern dishes, but it also has some health benefits and properties to it that you may enjoy in a cup of tea. Typically, it may be more difficult to find in your local grocery store, and you may have to go to a health food store or an herbal store that sells various herbs. But let's get started to show you how to make your turmeric tea at home. So, first what we're going to need to do is you're going to need to take a tea kettle and fill it up with some cold water. Once you've filled up the tea kettle with cold water, you're then going to put it on your stove and turn your stove on high, allowing time for the water to boil. Once the water is boiling, you can then remove it from the heat. You're going to want to make sure that your water has come to a boiling point so that it's the appropriate temperature to diffuse the herb throughout the beverage. What we're going to do then is we're going to take one of our teabags and we're going to open it up. Now, keep in mind you're going to want to use a cup that's between eight and twelve ounces so that the tea doesn't become too diluted. Once you have your teabag in your teacup, we're then going to take the boiling water and pour it over top the teabag, fully submersing it into the hot water. Now, this is important so that the contents of the teabag are fully getting diffused throughout the beverage and that there's no parts of the teabag that are left dry. Once that's in there, you can then give it a few bobs before you let it sit there for a little bit. And make sure to leave yourself a little room in the top there to avoid getting burned, 'cause remember, you are using boiling water. Once the teabag is fully submersed in the boiling water, you're going to want to let it sit there--or steep--for about two to four minutes, depending on the intensity of the flavor that you prefer. Now, you could add some honey or sugar to the beverage if you want to deaden down the taste or sweeten it up a bit, but it's really up to you. Again, my name is Joey Papa. I'm a coffee consultant, and today we learned how to make turmeric tea.
