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 relief when you have a cold. And they contain antioxidants that help your body fight a cold before it kicks in.
This recipe is a homemade version of one of my new favorite teas. I first started drinking Ginger-Turmeric Tea last winter. Its earthy spiciness just felt like the perfect contrast to the gray, winter days. It soothed my sore throat when I got a nasty cold, and it warmed my belly on chilly evenings.
