Ginger and turmeric are easily two of the most healing foods. Ingesting each of them have an insane amount of health benefits. My mom has recently been brewing a lot of tea using both fresh Turmeric and Ginger. After some research, I’m hooked too. So let’s talk about some of the ways that they feed your body, so that you’re motivated to brew your own like I was.

How to make the tea –
Wash a chunk of both the ginger and turmeric and skin it as best as you can. Cut off any of the tips/ ends. Put the ginger and turmeric in a pot with filtered water. Bring the pot to a boil and then reduce to low heat. Let the roots simmer for 30-45 minutes or until desired flavor is achieved. Remove from heat and transfer to a glass jar.
You can keep this in the fridge and reheat as desired. The tea will stay good for a few days!
I’d love to hear what your thoughts are and if you make it! Enjoy!!
