Turmeric and Ginger are two of the best ingredients when it comes to anti-inflammatory properties. Packed with anti-oxidants, it’s a great way to support your liver, digestion, and nervous system without overstimulating yourself with caffeinated beverages. Here’s a simple recipe for making the perfect cup of turmeric ginger tea.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups of water

  • 1 tsp grated/diced turmeric, fresh*

  • 1 tsp grated/diced ginger, fresh*

  • 2 cinnamon sticks

  • Lemon juice to taste

Directions

  • Place all ingredients to pot and bring to boil.
  • Once boiling, simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • Once cooled to drinking temperature, strain liquid into cup
  • Add lemon juice to taste and serve.

Notes

  • *Turmeric/Ginger: I buy organic turmeric and ginger in bulk. Then after washing, I peel the ginger with a spoon (reduces waste), and throw the ginger in a food processor. To store the ginger, I put the processed ginger into a zip lock bag and spread it out evenly then score it by drawing lines with a chopstick on the outside of the bag creating a 4×4 grid. I store the bag flat in the freezer. This way I can snap off the amount I want to use. It thaws super quickly and saves me a ton of time. I do the same for the turmeric, except that I don’t peel the turmeric. 
  • *If you don’t have fresh turmeric on hand, many recipes say to sub with 1/3 tsp dried turmeric and 1/3 tsp dried ginger. I’ve only tried this a few times and prefer to use fresh ingredients, but try both and do what’s easier for you.
