Ginger-Turmeric Tea

Whether you’re fighting a cold or just feeling chilly, spicy-yet-soothing Ginger-Turmeric Tea is just what the doctor ordered!

Turmeric and ginger are delicious together, and they’re both medicinal, as well. They reduce inflammation, which can help give you some pain reliefwhen you have a cold. And theycontain antioxidants thathelp your body fight a cold before it kicks in.

This recipe isa homemade version of one of my new favorite teas. I first started drinkingGinger-Turmeric Tea last winter. Its earthy spiciness just felt likethe perfect contrast to the gray, winter days. It soothed my sore throat when I got a nasty cold, and it warmed mybelly on chilly evenings.
