LUANN'S THOUGHTS ABOUT "SPICED GOLDEN TEA BLEND"
(Not based on any fancy studies - just my observations from using it)
- Be aware that turmeric powder stains anything it comes in contact with. Very hard to remove the stain!
- Add fat, such as a small bit of coconut oil, to further increase bioavailability - and give additional flavor.
- This blend is tasty enough on it's own mixed with warm water, but adding honey enhances it even more.
- Also tasty added to milk of your choice. I use coconut milk which is delicious with it.
