Chaga Ginger Turmeric Tea

Chaga Ginger Turmeric Tea

This tea is a staple in my kitch & something I love to have on hand, especially during the cold winter months! I like to sip on it in the afternoon & often add in fresh lemon, raw or manuka honey, ceylon cinnamon or cayenne!

It’s great for gut health, to relieve bloating, soothe a sore throat or heal cold/flu symptoms, boosts immunity & antioxidant protection & it’s caffeine-free!

In the winter, it’s important to feed our bodies with warming foods & spices & this tea is the perfect way to do so! Usually, I just make it with turmeric & ginger but today, I added some chaga mushroom chunks to give it an immunity-boosting, energizing & stress/anxiety relieving kick! I use the Suro chaga.

PRO TIP: When using turmeric in recipes, whether raw or ground, it’s always important to combine it with black peppercorn to activate the beneficial compound, curcuma, known for all the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory & anti-bacterial properties!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 thumb-sized pieces of fresh ginger, peeled & sliced
  • 1.5 tsp. ground turmeric
  • 8-10 black peppercorn pieces
  • 4-5 chunks chaga mushroom
  • Enough water to fill a large deep skillet

TO MAKE IT:

  • Fill a deep skillet with water about 3/4 way through. Add all the other ingredients & bring to a boil.
  • Once boiling, reduce heat to a simmer & let simmer for about an hour.
  • Remove from the heat & let sit for another hour or two – the longer the better!
  • Once it’s done, strain it over a large metal bowl to remove the ginger/peppercorn & chaga & pour into mason jars.
  • Store in the fridge!
  • Enjoy!
