Servings 2


  • 3 cups water
  • 1 inch fresh ginger, sliced
  • 1/2 inch fresh turmeric, sliced (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Sweetener to taste (optional)


  • In a small saucepan, add the water, ginger and turmeric. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, boil for 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Stir in the lemon juice. Spoon out the ginger and turmeric or strain with a fine mesh sieve.

I like this tea without sweetener, but keep in mind that it is bitter, but soothing. Use sweetener as needed.
