Turmeric Ginger Tea

This Turmeric Ginger Tea has been my go-to drink all throughout the cold winter days that we are still getting used to. Though we have been enjoying this warm along with a little bot of honey, come summer, I plan on serving it cold. Made with only 5 ingredients, this heartwarming natural remedy for cold winter days is ready in less than 15 minutes.

Notes

  • If you can’t get your hands on fresh turmeric, you can use dried turmeric powder. For 1-inch of turmeric root, I usually use ½ teaspoon of its dried version.
  • If you have any leftovers, feel free to place into a jar, cover it tightly with a lid, and keep in the fridge up to a week.
  • You can serve this drink cold, but it is best to add the honey while it is still hot so that it will be easier for it to dissolve.
