I’ve been experimenting in the kitchen for a while now, but I only recently got into brewing different kinds of tea from scratch. Sure teabags can be very convenient, but I noticed that brewing my own helps bring out the flavors and essence of the ingredients at a higher intensity, and it also tastes so much fresher. For this recipe, I incorporated both turmeric root and ginger root with lemon and some raw honey for sweetness. This is my favorite way to make fresh turmeric tea because it’s so potent, so just a few ingredients go a long way.
