I drink this tea whenever I feel under the weather. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. Ginger is great for digestion, combats nausea and is also anti-inflammatory and antiviral.
- 2 cups boiling water
- 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger or fresh ginger
- Fresh lemon
- Maple syrup – optional
Boil all the ingredients together for 10 minutes. Squeeze a good bit of lemon into your tea. Use the maple syrup as a sweetener, if needed. Pour your tea into a cup through a strainer.
