Spring may well be here, but that hasn't stopped all the nasty bugs flying around the last few days and I've managed to catch my self a bit of a cold. When I'm feeling a bit low and in need of an immunity boost I always turn to anti-inflammatory hero turmeric to cheer me up. Here's my recipe for the best turmeric tea with plenty of lemon to zap away a cold and boost your immunity.
2 cups of water
1 inch of fresh root ginger
2 teaspoons of ground turmeric
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon of lemongrass tea leaves
6 black peppercorns
Juice of 1 lemon
Teaspoon of raw honey to taste (optional)
A pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt (or rock salt)
- Bring the water to boil in a small saucepan
- Add all the ingredients apart from the tea leaves and allow to simmer for around 10 minutes. Be sure not to boil it at this stage.
- Add the leaves for 5 minutes.
- Remove from the heat and strain through a sieve in to a teapot or jar.
- Serve and enjoy
