It’s bootcamp Wednesday! 🙂
I had been hearing so much about turmeric tea with ginger and pepper. Pinterest is full of recipes and suggestions on preparing the perfect turmeric tea. I wasn’t sure if I would like it because I really really dislike ginger. The don’t like the smell, the taste… I just don’t like it. I couldn’t find a recipe that really “clicked” with me. So made up my own…
Turmeric Ginger Tea
3 cups water
1 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp ginger root (peeled and chopped in very thin pieces)
1 pinch ground black pepper
1 pinch cayenne pepper
3 tbsp organic honey (you can use your sweetener of choice)
1 lemon ring + a little bit of lemon juice (squeezed from the same lemon)
Place all ingredients except the honey in a pot and bring to boil. Boil for about 5 minutes. Add the honey to your tea cup. When tea has boiled for about 5 min, pour over the honey through a strainer. (I wanted to avoid the little pieces of ginger and possible some bigger black pepper pieces). Stir until the honey dissolves. Enjoy!
I have to say… I quite enjoyed it! I think I’ll be making it again. It’s great after a workout. So refreshing!
