Prep and cook time:  20 minutes

4   cups spring water
3-inch strip fresh turmeric root, peeled (or 1 teaspoon organic turmeric powder)
4-inch strip fresh ginger root, peeled (or 1   teaspoon organic ginger powder)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon raw, local honey
lemon slices, or the juice of a full lemon

  1. Put water into a small pot and bring to a boil on the stove.
  2. Make sure that the water has come to a full boil. Add turmeric, ginger and black pepper to the boiling water and reduce to simmer for 8 to 10 minutes. This will extract the beneficial compounds from the turmeric and ginger.
  3. Remove the pot from the stove. Strain the tea into a cup through a fine-mesh strainer to filter out the particles of turmeric and ginger.
  4. Add honey and lemon to taste.
