Ginger Lemon Turmeric Tea
This warming, gut-friendly drink is anti-inflammatory and aids in digestion and muscle pain relief.
Servings: 2 servings
- 3 1-inch cuts fresh ginger root, sliced
- 2 tsp ground turmeric
- 2 tsp black pepper
- 1 whole lemon, sliced
- 3 tbsp raw local honey or to taste
- 6 cups water
Begin by heating six cups of water to a gentle boil. In the meantime, wash and slice ginger, lemon, and turmeric (if using fresh).
Add sliced lemon and ginger to nearly boiling water. Add the turmeric, then the black pepper.
Allow this to simmer for 8-10 minutes, covered. You may notice a golden yellow foam forms (if you used powdered turmeric); that's okay! Make sure you watch the pot so it doesn't boil over!
Next, remove the saucepan from heat and allow to cool for 1-2 minutes before serving. Add honey to taste and enjoy!
