What is Turmeric Ginger Tea?
It is an Indian tea, where ginger, cinnamon and turmeric are boiled in water.
Lemon juice is added and then strained, to get a healthy and tasty tea.
You can also add in honey, if you like it to be a little sweet.
Overall, it is pleasantly sweet and a tad spicy because of cinnamon.
You may also add black pepper if you want. But, for me, ginger and cinnamon work well.
Although many people use fresh turmeric root while making it, it is fine to use it even the dry, ground one for this tea. Infact, I have used dry turmeric in this recipe.
You can serve this tea hot or cold.
In summers, I like to add a lot of ice cubes in the tea and serve it chilled. While in winters, I sip it hot.
