Tea, green, black or any other kind, is a healthful drink; many people claim the same about coffee.  But if you want a REALLY healthy nutritious drink or two, try this unusual recipe that brims with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory ingredients, and who know what else that will do you good.  It's pretty nice tasting, too, and beautiful.

Golden Tea

1 cup of almond or coconut milk, unsweetened
1/2 tsp. ground turmeric, or 2 or 3 thin slices of raw turmeric
1/2 of a cinnamon stick or 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 or 3 thin slices of fresh ginger, or 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
two or three  black peppercorns or a small pinch of black pepper
1 tsp. coconut oil (optional)
honey to taste, preferably local
and raw

You may double this recipe if you prepare in a pan on the stove, or make a single cup in the microwave.  For the stovetop, bring to a boil, stirring frequently, and then simmer for a few minutes, stirring once in a while. It will become a golden color.

Or use a large coffee mug, a 2 cup glass measuring cup, soup mug or even a gravy boat, as long as it is microwave safe.  Add milk, then the other ingredients except honey, ending with the oil.  Watch it doesn't boil over.  If using the microwave, bring it to boiling  several times, letting it steep in between. 

Strain into your cup, using a fine sieve.  Add honey to taste.  Stir whenever you take a sip, to mix ingredients, as any ground spice will settle out. 

If you made only one cup, have another.  You can add almond or coconut milk to the strained items, plus another 1/2 tsp. of ground turmeric plus any other ingredients that were ground, and the oil.  When finished cooking, add honey to taste.
