Also known as “Golden Milk”, this little cup goodness is so delicious, it’s hard to believe it’s equally good for you. Chock full of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric tea is good for digestion, immune function, and helps you get a good night’s sleep. If this all sounds too good to be true, think again: we in the west are just catching up to this miracle drink, which has been a go-to drink in South Asia since ancient times.
