Turmeric, Ginger & Lemon Tea
This spicy and supercharge Turmeric, Ginger & Lemon tea works wonders to treat a cold, sore throat, cough, seasonal allergies, fatigue, chronic pain, and digestive complaints. My go-to recipe if I feel a cold coming on. I often make it just as a preventative tea.
This winter wellness elixir is packed with health promoting antioxidants which detoxify the liver and blood, and kick start digestion. Add a little bit of honey or maple syrup if you prefer it sweeter. I prefer to use fresh ginger and turmeric whenever I can find them if not I’ll go for powedered.
Turmeric is known for its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antiviral properties.
Ginger is great for digestion, combats nausea and is also anti-inflammatory and antiviral.
Lemon juice is rich in vitamin C, a water-soluble vitamin and powerful antioxidant required for the growth and repair of body tissues.
- 2 cups boiling water
- a piece of turmerci the size of a pinky finger or 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
- a piece of ginger the size of a thumb or 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Boil all the ingredients together for 10 minutes. The longer you let it sit, the stronger it is. I often leave it cool and drink it warm or cold. Enjoy! 🙂
