There's this cute little vegan bakery in Hampden just NE of Baltimore called Harmony Bakery. I went there with a friend recently and enjoyed their ginger turmeric tea, so I decided to try and make some for myself once I got home. It turned out pretty spot on!
Boil a kettle's worth of water.
Cut about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of fresh ginger root (you don't have to cut the outer skin off as long as the insides of the ginger root are exposed) and add to the water once it's hot enough, along with about a tbsp of turmeric. I also added in a tbsp or two of honey as well.
Let it all steep together for a while. I let it steep for most of the day. Mostly because I'd forgotten about it but also to give the flavors time to really meld together.
Strain the ginger root, and then pour your tea once it's room temp into a pitcher to enjoy!
