This ginger and turmeric tea will help boost your immune system and keep you healthy during the cold season.



  • 5 cups of water
  • The yellow peel of 1 lemon use a veggie peeler
  • 2 inch piece of ginger cut in thin rounds, skin on
  • 2 inch piece of turmeric root cut in thin rounds or grated, skin on
  • Tiny pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 crack of black pepper
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon virgin coconut oil, butter, or avocado oil
  • Honey, preferably raw


  1. Bring the water, lemon peel, ginger, turmeric, cayenne, and black pepper to a bare simmer, turn the heat down to low, cook for 7 minutes. You don't want the pot to bubble or boil, it's harmful to the nutrients in the turmeric. Take off the heat and squeeze in the lemon juice and stir in the coconut oil. Strain the tea into a cup and add 1 teaspoon of honey. If using raw honey, wait for the tea to cool down a few minutes so the heat doesn't destroy some of it's nutrients. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

The tea will keep for 3 days either at room temperature or in the fridge. It's ideal to strain the tea after you make it, or the flavor gets pretty strong. Just heat the entire pot and serve as needed.
