Turmeric has a long history of being used in herbal teas and there is a plethora of reasons behind it. First, turmeric carries a unique tart and earthy flavor that pairs well with fruits and natural sweeteners such as honey. It is also a great addition of flavor to many South Asian dishes.

Apart from its flavor, turmeric is also well-known for its medicinal and nutritional properties. This is mainly thanks to a compound named curcumin found in turmeric. One of the most notable health benefits of curcumin is its anti-inflammatory properties. This is critical to repairing damage in your body and helps to bring significant benefits. This is what makes turmeric very effective against acne, arthritis and gut problems.
