How to make turmeric and ginger tea

To make turmeric and ginger tea, add 1 liter of water to a pot along with thin slices of fresh ginger root and turmeric. In case you can't find fresh turmeric, use the powder. If you don't mind getting your fingers dirty, it's actually better finely grate turmeric so that it is really infused in the water.

It is important to add a pinch of fresh black pepper to the pot as this activates turmeric. Also add a lemon peel, making sure to peel off the bitter white part, and a pinch of cayenne pepper. Lemon and peppers are optional, but they add up a lot!

Put the water on low heat, because if you boil this tea, you will kill some of the nutrients. Cooking during 7 minutes, turn off the heat and add the juice of 1 lemon and a teaspoon of virgin coconut oil. Fat helps your body absorb turmeric, but you can also use avocado oil if you want.

Once the tea cools for 3 minutes, pour into a cup and add raw honey to taste (optional).
