DIY Turmeric & Ginger Iced Tea Recipe
1 cup of water + 3 cups of water
4 tsp of turmeric powder
4 tsp of dried ginger
¾ tsp of black pepper
¼ cup of honey
Put the turmeric, ginger, and black pepper into a saucepan and pour one cup of water. Bring it to a boil and then lower the heat to a simmer.
Simmer for a couple of minutes before you turn off the heat.
Add the honey and cover the saucepan. Leave it like that for an hour. If you want a stronger concentration, you can leave it overnight.
Then, with cheesecloth, strain the content for a smoother texture.
Store the liquid and make one drink at a time. Or, add the three cups of water and keep the iced tea like this in the jar in the fridge.
