This chai tea is a bit complicated but the end result is delicious so I'd suggest making a nice portion so you can sip and reheat throughout the evening. Turmeric is great for inflammation but the tea has such a bitter taste that I have to choke it down. I knew that if I found a tastier way of enjoying turmeric I'd be able to benefit from it's healing properties more often. 

In one pot I boiled two bananas for about 20 minutes or until the water became murky and thick.  Then in a second pot I added freshly grated turmeric and ginger, cloves, cinnamon and cardamom. I added 2 cups of water and  let this simmer for about 20 minutes to get a nice rich and spicy tea going. Then I added a cup of coconut cream and a 1/2 cup of almond milk. One my bananas were done I added the hot banana tea to the first pot along with 2 teaspoons of black tea. I now let all of this cook for another 10-15 minutes. 

Strain drink and than me later.
