    How often should Immune Booster Turmeric tea be drank… Can I make a batch and store it in the fridgerator and warm it up daily??

      Anne, If you use water, it can be make ahead of time and refrigerated. Keep in mind that most herbs lose some of their
      antoxitant potentency if not used right away. I prefer fresh and have a cup several times a week. 🙂

    I have read that to get the full benefit of the turmeric that the tea needs a pinch of black pepper and a 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil. I understand the black pepper and oil help the body to absorb te nutrients in the turmeric.
