This comforting ginger turmeric tea is made with spices from your pantry, and doesn't require any tea bags at all. A healthy and delicious drink made in only 5 minutes!

Turmeric and ginger are both widely recognized for their health benefits and lovely aroma, and this recipe is one of my favorite ways to enjoy them together. It's such a quick and easy drink to make, and a little different to your typical tea and coffee drinks.
Of course, as with most teas, turmeric ginger tea is also allergy friendly, vegan and suitable for most dietary requirements.

💡 TIP! You can also use raw ginger and turmeric. Simply slice a good amount of both, boil them in the water, and strain the drink before serving.
Add the water, ginger, turmeric and pepper to a pot on the stove top. Bring it to a boil on medium to high heat. As soon as the tea starts boiling, you can remove it off the heat.
Then, add lemon juice and sweetener to taste. I like to add about ½ teaspoon of honey, but this comes down to your personal preferences. You might want to add sweetener, lemon, both or neither.
Serve the tea immediately in appropriate cups, and enjoy.
Here is my best advice to help you succeed with this recipe:
- Use fine ground black pepper. If you use coarsely ground black pepper, I recommend straining your tea before serving to prevent chunks of pepper in your tea.
- Avoid boiling the tea for too long, or it can get bitter. Simply bring it to a boil, then remove it from the heat.
I love to serve a warm cup of tea in the morning with my breakfast, or just as a comforting beverage during the day.
There's never a bad time to enjoy tea, and you can choose to serve it alone, or accompanied by some food or a snack.
You can store leftover ginger turmeric tea in a sealed container such as a bottle or jug in your refrigerator for up to 3 days. The drink can either be reheated in a microwave or pot and served warm, or served chilled as iced tea.
Although this recipe is very easy to make from scratch, I like to make a large batch so that I can enjoy the tea over several days.
