This has been my latest favorite enjoyment! I've been making this drink many times during the week and now I can't get enough of it. It is tremendously delicious as a lemonade or tea and incredibly fragrant and full of flavor, the kind of aroma and flavor that only turmeric powder can produce. The combination of flavors may sound a little bit odd but once these flavors are blend together it become simply irresistible!  I promise you will love it too!

I love to drink a cup of this in the afternoon, often accompanied by a short walk to our little garden...it just become the perfect pick me up lemonade tea for this time of the day. And amazing drink for all seasons!
