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.

  • 1 ½ inch turmeric root cut into small pieces
  • 1 ½ inch ginger root cut into small pieces
  • 3-4 slices of lemon plus more for serving
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • Honey optional
  • 1/8 tsp coconut oil or ghee
  • 4 cups of filtered water


  • Place turmeric, ginger, lemon slices, black pepper, honey, and coconut oil in a small saucepan. Pour in the water.
  • Bring it to a boil. Strain. Serve immediately with a lemon slice and honey, if desired.



  • 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.
