Ingredients

  • 4 cups mineral water
  • 
1 teaspoon turmeric powder (or better a 3-inch root of fresh turmeric root, peeled)
  • 
1 teaspoon ginger powder (or a 4-inch fresh young ginger root, peeled)
  • coconut nectar or dark-liquid stevia, to taste
  • juice of a full lemon

Method

Put water into a small pan and bring to a boil on the cooker.

Make sure that the water has come to a full boil.  Add turmeric and ginger to the boiling water and reduce to simmer for 8 to 10 minutes.  This will extract the beneficial compounds from the turmeric and ginger.  Remove the pan from the heat.

Strain the tea into a cup through a fine-mesh strainer to filter out the particles of turmeric and ginger.  Add the nectar or stevia and lemon to taste.

May refrigerate or keep at room temperature over the day.

To fight a cold, add a red chilli which will also increase your metabolism too!
