5 from 4 reviews


  • 12 Tbsp. black or green looseleaf tea* (I used half English Breakfast, half Ceylon. Oolong is fantastic, too!)
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 tsp.+ maple syrup, honey, or sweetener of choice**
  • lemon slices, optional


  1. Add all tea, cinnamon, turmeric, and sweetener to the base of a french press.
  2. Add hot water half way and allow to steep for 3-5 minutes stirring once, then press. Allow to cool slightly, then remove the press and fill with ice cubes.
  3. Allow to come to room temperature, then press, pour into an ice-filled glass, and serve with a lemon slice.


*I very much fall into the camp that stronger iced tea is always better. 2 Tbsp. of tea here is really strong. Feel free to use less if desired.
**1 tsp. sweetener isn’t very sweet at all. I’m a huge fan of unsweetened tea, but a little bit here works really well with the cinnamon. Just a tip!
