Ginger and Turmeric Tea

Health benefits:


1 tsp grated fresh ginger (or 1/3 tsp dried ginger)
1 tsp grated turmeric (or 1/3 tsp dried turmeric)
1 cup water
1 tsp coconut oil or 1/4 tsp black pepper (to aid turmeric absorption – optional)
Honey or a slice of lemon (or calamansi) to taste (optional)


1. In a small saucepan, bring a cup of water to boil. Turn off the heat and add the ginger and turmeric
2. Steep with the lid on for 5minutes (Covering with a lid prevents the oils and medicinal compounds escaping through the steam)
3. Strain the tea remedy and add some honey or slices of lemon (or calamansi) when the tea has cooled down (Excessive heat will destroy the benefits of honey)
4. Add the black pepper or coconut oil and stir well. Enjoy!
