  • 500 ml boiling hot water (2 cups)
  • 1 organic ginger tea bag (or a 1 cm slice of fresh ginger root, diced or grated)
  • ¼ tsp ground turmeric (or a 1 cm fresh piece of root, diced or grated)
  • 1 tbsp manuka or raw honey -more or less to taste

  • Pour the boiling water over the ginger, turmeric, and optional coconut oil.
  • Let it sit for a few minutes before adding the zest and juice.
  • Add the honey then simply sip yourself well.


Supercharge it

Simmering the ginger and turmeric root in the water for 5-10 minutes will make a more potent brew.

Boost it

Add a tablespoon of extra virgin coconut oil to the tea.


To make it vegan, replace the honey with maple syrup or rice malt syrup.
