What makes this recipe so good

If you鈥檙e looking for a new favourite immune boosting tea, you鈥檝e come to the right place!

  • HELPS YOU GET IN THOSE DAILY VITAMINS: This is an amazing tea to boost the immune system. It鈥檚 not only packed with vitamin C, but also rich in antioxidants, refreshing & comforting.
  • IT鈥橲 SO CHEAP! You鈥檝e probably noticed that a lot of special herbal tea blends are not cheap at all. Making your own is a great alternative. Plus, this particular recipe only requires staples that you might already have at home: ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, lemon, black pepper and a sweetener of your choice.
  • PERFECT IN BOTH SUMMER AND WINTER. Another huge perk of this recipe is that it鈥檚 equally good hot or cold. In the colder months of the year, I recommend making it hot to maximise that cosy factor. And yet, you can still enjoy it in the summer by popping in some ice cubes. Full instructions on how to turn this into a cold tea are below.
  • IT鈥橲 EASY PEASY. You honestly can鈥檛 go wrong with this one. It requires little to no prep. All you need to do is juice a lemon, grate some ginger and bam, you鈥檙e pretty much done. Plus, if you want to make things even easier, you can make it in a large batch!
  • YOU CAN ADJUST IT EASILY. Last but definitely not least, this immune boost tea is so amazing because it鈥檚 so easily adjustable. Swap agave nectar for your other favourite sweetener, double the ginger for that extra kick or add another lemon juice shot to double the Vitamin C dose. You can play around with it endlessly.

My Top Tips

Homemade Ginger & Lemon Tea with Turmeric - My Vegan Minimalist (7)

Always grate your ginger

Don鈥檛 just peel the ginger and chuck the whole thing into your pan. Grating is super important as this is the only way to make sure all the juices come out of it. If you鈥檙e just chucking in a whole ginger thumb, there will be a lot less flavour.

Don't forget to strain

Just before serving, make sure to strain the tea which will make sure the grated pieces of ginger are not floating about.

Make it iced!

Want to make cold and refreshing iced tea?. This wouldn鈥檛 be easier. Simply just prepare the tea as you would usually, add plenty of ice cubes and place it in the fridge. You鈥檒l know once it鈥檚 cold!

Make a Large Batch & Store

Make a huge batch in the morning, then pour it into an insulated thermo bottle and voila, you鈥檙e sorted for the day!
