  • 2 inch ginger root washed thinly sliced
  • 2 inch turmeric root washed thinly sliced
  • ½ a lemon sliced plus more for serving
  • 6 cups filtered water
  • Honey optional
  • teaspoon black pepper optional
  • ½ tablespoon coconut oil optional


  • Place the sliced ginger, turmeric and lemon in a small saucepan. Add the filtered water.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, then simmer for 5-10 minutes to deepend the color. Strain and serve immediately with honey, if desired.


Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. The ginger turmeric tea will last about 5 days in the fridge. You can reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave, or you can enjoy cold or iced.
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However you can substitute 1/2 teaspoon of ginger powder or 1/2 teaspoon turmeric instead of using the fresh roots. I highly recommend using fresh though if possible
