It’s so pretty. Really, it’s hard to look at that teabag brewing with its bright orange bits in an increasingly golden infusion and not comment. There’s also a long steep time recommended by Numi, 8 minutes. So, you’ll have some time to stare.

Ok, so the time is up. I was surprised at how enjoyable this was, although I smelled and tasted quite a bit of chamomile mixed in with the warm, kitchen-like do of the turmeric, and I’m already a huge fan of chamomile. The turmeric itself is, well, turmeric. It’s in there, and while I don’t drink enough turmeric tea to know if this is high or low quality, I like it. I also added a little sweetener once I made it halfway through the cup. Wow. It really sweetens well, the way a chai might.

P.S. I sneezed twice while this was brewing. I’m going to blame the turmeric,as well as my sniffer getting a little too personal with the tea bag. If I don’t encounter the same thing next time, I’ll revisit this tasting and exonerate the tea.
