Start the day with this flavorful and healing lemon ginger turmeric tea. A homemade detox tea recipe that supports your immune system and maintains a healthy digestive system.
  • 6 c water
  • 1 chunk fresh ginger, peeled (approximately 5-6" in length)
  • 3 cinnamon sticks (or 1-2 tsp ground cinnamon)
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 6 fresh lemons (and the juice of ½ fresh lemon when ready to serve)
  1. Peel the fresh ginger root and dice into thin slices.
  2. Combine the fresh ginger slices and water in a large pot or saucepan over high heat on the stove.
  3. Bring to a boil. Then turn to low heat and let simmer for approximately 10 minutes.
  4. After 10 minutes, add the cinnamon sticks (or ground cinnamon), turmeric and cayenne and simmer on low heat for another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Remove from heat, let cool and strain.
  6. *This makes about 4-5 cups (some water will steam off while boiling) of a concentrated version of the detox tea which you can store in a glass container in the fridge. You can drink this concentrate warm or cold.
  7. When ready to enjoy add the juice of ½ fresh lemon juice to the concentrated mix.
  8. I personally like to add ¼ c of this concentrated mixture to 6 oz hot water (with fresh lemon juice).
*I personally like to make this homemade detox tea recipe in bulk. Then I store this concentrated mixture it in a large mason jar in the fridge. When I'm ready to drink, I mix ¼ cup of this concentrated turmeric ginger tea with the juice of ½ fresh lemon and 6 oz hot water.
