Turmeric is a bright-colored herbal ingredient known for its subtle and unique flavor and the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of its active compound curcumin. It has powerful medicinal properties and is often used as a remedy for joint pain, improving brain function, and to boost the immune system.

Here is the list of turmeric teas reviewed in this article:

Pure Turmeric Powder

A great way to make your turmeric tea is by using pure turmeric powder. This allows you to make the desired amount of pure turmeric tea and to add additional ingredients if you wish to do so.

turmeric root and powder

I often add fresh or dried ginger root and ground black pepper to my turmeric tea. This blend does not only taste great, but black pepper also enhances the bioavailability of curcumin, the active anti-inflammatory compound of turmeric. You can also try adding other ingredients like cinnamon and clove.

When you are choosing which turmeric powder to buy, I recommend getting an organic high-quality product. This will make sure that your tea will taste fresh and delicious, and that you will get the maximum health benefits from it.

Here is how to make 2 cups of tea with turmeric powder:

  1. Pour 2 cups of water into a kettle and bring to boil.
  2. Add 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder. Add additional ingredients (eg. ginger, black pepper) according to your preference.
  3. Cover and let simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Pour into cups through a strainer. Enjoy!

FGO Organic Turmeric Root Powder

This USDA certified 100% pure turmeric powder from FGO is packaged and lab-tested in California to ensure its superior quality. It comes in an 8-ounce resealable bag that offers great value for money. You can also use this turmeric powder for cooking curries and other delicious dishes!

Top 3 Turmeric Tea Blends

The easiest way to prepare a cup of tasty and healthy turmeric tea is to use tea bags or a ready-made loose tea blend. There is a huge variety of different turmeric tea blends available. Here are my top 3 turmeric tea blends!

Buddha Teas Organic Turmeric Ginger Tea Bagsbuddha teas organic turmeric ginger tea bags

Buddha Teas is a company that offers a wide range of high-quality organic and wild-crafted herbal teas. They have a high emphasis on environmental values and sustainability, and their products do not contain any additives, such as flavorings or preservatives.

Buddha Teas Turmeric Ginger Tea is a classic blend that also includes black pepper. It has a warm and soothing taste with a hint of spiciness. This a great natural remedy for digestive issues, arthritis, common cold, and many other health issues!

It is one of my favorite herbal tea blends and I have also written a more comprehensive review about it.

Numi Organic Tea Three Roots Tea Bags

This organic and Fair Trade certified blend from Numi includes turmeric, ginger, and licorice roots with the addition of rose.

This carefully crafted blend combines the warm, earthy, and spicy flavors of the roots with the floral notes of rose. The taste is very well balanced and I recommend trying it, even if you don’t especially like the taste of turmeric.

NOTE: For this product, Amazon automatically offers an option for a recurring subscription. If you wish to make a one-time purchase, make sure to choose that option.

DelightTeas Ayurvedic Herbal Turmeric Loose Tea

DelightTeas ayurvedic herbal tea blend combines the ayurvedic turmeric and ginger with fresh lemongrass and naturally sweet licorice root. The tea comes in a resealable 6-ounce bag and all of the ingredients are organic.

The ingredients in the bag are not very finely ground. This helps with preserving the flavors and makes it easier to strain them, but it also means that preparing a proper infusion takes more time. The instructions on the package advise to steep the tea for 5 minutes but I recommend letting it simmer for at least 10 to 15 minutes to get more flavors out of the ingredients.

Go ahead and give this fresh and aromatic ayurvedic herbal tea a try. It is one of the tastiest tea blends I have tasted!

Best Instant Turmeric Tea

I don’t often use instant tea products because usually they seem to be made from cheap ingredients and contain sugar and artificial ingredients. Luckily there are also exceptions.

Let me introduce a great instant turmeric tea blend from Turmaquik!

Turmaquik Golden Milk Powder

Turmaquik Golden Milk Powder is an award-winning (Amazon’s BestReviews Award 2019) product that maximizes the health benefits of turmeric. In addition to turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, and black pepper, it also contains turmeric extract that has a 95% curcuminoid content.

This American made blend aims for optimal bioavailability of the beneficial ingredients and provides you with more health benefits than the usual golden milk blends. Because it is an instant tea, the preparation is as easy and convenient as it gets!

NOTE: For this product, Amazon automatically offers an option for a recurring subscription. If you wish to make a one-time purchase, make sure to choose that option.

Best Turmeric Tea Brands

  1. I am always on the lookout for Turmeric Products and teas.

    This Golden Milk Powder sounds very good. The ingredients are great. Never was much into instant tea either but after your review, I think II will make an exception.

    Can you add to it like lemon or orange?
    Do you add anything like that to any of the other teas in your review?

    • Hi Soraya,

      The Golden Milk Powder really is a great product. A rare diamond amongst the generally lousy instant teas.

      I do sometimes add lemon or orange peel when I’m preparing herbal teas. You can add fresh or dried lemon or orange peel to almost any herbal tea. I have tried this many times with different herbal teas and it always works. Try adding some fresh lemon peel to your turmeric tea to make it extra fresh! You can also use some honey if you like to make it a bit sweet.

      Also, when I’m preparing iced tea, I often add some freshly squeezed lemon or orange juice to make it more fresh and fruity.


  2. I have fibromyalgia and have been hearing those in my community reference Tumeric often. Thank you very much for clearing up some of my confusion as to how to make the tea with the optimum absorption for its anti-inflammatory properties.

    • Hi Randi,

      Good to hear that my article provided you with some useful information. I hope that turmeric tea will help you with the fibromyalgia.

      All the Best,

  3. I just came across your post and what a blessing it was. I have been drinking Tetley Tea my whole life and I am sick of it. Your teas sound very healthy and its like a breath of fresh air to me. Are these considered to be a green tea? I can’t wait to try these out. Thank you for this info.

    • Hi Rick,

      All teas on my site are herbal teas or herbal tisanes. This means that they are made with herbs instead of the actual tea plant. It is a bit confusing to call them “tea” but I like the term herbal tea and it is also commonly used elsewhere.

      Green tea (and black tea) are made with the actual tea plant (Camellia sinensis). So green tea is made from the leaves (and buds) of the same plant as black tea. The difference is that the leaves used for green tea have not undergone the oxidation process used to black teas.

      Go ahead and try the different herbal teas on my site! I am sure that you will get to experience some new interesting tastes and health benefits that are quite different from the regular black tea.

      Best Regards,

  4. Awesome article! Never knew there were so many different turmeric teas. Loved learning about the therapeutic value of turmeric also 🙂 I make homemade kombucha and use black and green teas, your article gave me some good ideas to experiment with.

    I am also quite impressed by the design of your articles and website, keep it up!

    • Hi Gina,

      Great to hear that you gained some new information from my article! I like kombucha, but I have not tried to make it myself yet. It would be interesting to try and make it with different herbal teas.
