  • 2 inch piece of ginger cut in thin rounds, skin on
  • 2 inch piece of turmeric root cut in thin rounds or grated, skin on
  • Tiny pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 crack of black pepper
  • Honey


Bring the water, lemon peel, ginger, turmeric, cayenne, and black pepper to a bare simmer, turn the heat down to low, cook for 7 minutes. You don't want the pot to bubble or boil, it's harmful to the nutrients in the turmeric. Take off the heat and squeeze in the lemon juice and stir. Strain the tea into a cup and add 1 teaspoon of honey. If using raw honey, wait for the tea to cool down a few minutes so the heat doesn't destroy some of its nutrients. Enjoy!
