This Cherry Turmeric Bedtime Tea recipe was developed in partnership with the Cherry Marketing Institute.
I’d like to introduce you to Cherry Turmeric Bedtime Tea.
If you read this blog or follow me on social, you know I drink coffee… on the regular. It’s my first thang in the morning thang and occasionally (read: often) I enjoy a decaf latte or homemade eggnog frappuccino in the afternoon.
Or sometimes I get a little crazy (or caffeinated…it’s only semantics people) and pour espresso over my oatmeal. But I must confess, this coffee lover met Cherry Turmeric Bedtime Tea. I’m not one of those that likes to drink coffee before bed, sure I’ll take decaf coffee with dessert but right before bed, something warm, comforting, sleep inducing (and freaking healthy) is in order.
Because tart cherries are one of the best natural sources of melatonin, I steeped chamomile tea in tart cherry juice and stirred in a heaping dose of ground turmeric, fresh ginger, and fresh whole tart cherries–> and Cherry Turmeric Bedtime Tea was born.
Guys, this Cherry Turmeric Bedtime Tea will undoubtedly change your coffee or tea life. I can promise you that. In fact, I can pretty much drink this whole pot myself… thus putting myself into sleepy dreamland state.
Grab a cup and let’s do this thang.
- 1 cup Montmorency tart cherry juice
- 1 cup water
- ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
- ⅛ teaspoon freshly grated ginger
- 2 bags chamomile tea
- ¼ cup frozen Montmorency tart cherries
- In small pot or tea kettle bring tart cherry juice and water to a boil.
- Stir in turmeric and ginger and pour over tea bags and frozen Montmorency tart cherries.
- Steep for 5 minutes.
- Remove tea bags and enjoy warm. This tea is also delicious room temperature or chilled.
