As winter approaches and to help fight off whatever happens to be going around, turmeric, ginger and honey is said to be an incredibly powerful combination that can boost immunity .
Using high-quality and ethically sourced ingredients can make a world of a difference to both the taste and effectiveness. Turmeric, with its centuries-old use in traditional medicine, is known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Ginger, a versatile spice, adds warmth and aids digestion. Honey, nature's sweetener, not only enhances flavour but also brings its own set of antibacterial and antiviral benefits.
Our Lakadong Turmeric is renowned for it's unique 9% curcumin. It is more than double the amount seen in other turmerics making it one of the highest levels in the world. How? It is grown near the mountain foothills from a small village in Meghalaya, India in heavy rainfall and at high altitudes. Then carefully grown, hand-sliced and sun-dried by a group of women farmers who have been nurturing this heirloom turmeric for generations.
- 1 cup of hot water
- 1 teaspoon of Lakadong Turmeric
- 1/2 teaspoon of ginger powder or 1/2 inch of freshly grated ginger
- a teaspoon of honey
HOW TO MAKE:
It can be made either in a pot or simply in a mug.
- In a pot: heat a cup of water over medium heat and add in your ginger and turmeric. Let it simmer for fifteen minutes. Empty into a mug and add honey once slightly cooled.
- In a mug, mix together the turmeric and ginger and slowly pour in hot water. Add honey at the end once the tea has slightly cooled.
Add more honey if you prefer it sweeter! You can also add a pinch of black pepper which helps the gut absorb the curcumin more efficiently. Additionally, squeezing a few drops of fresh lemon will give a citrusy and refreshing flavour.
💡 according to Āyurveda, it is important honey is not heated to high temperatures as this can affect its benefits and profile.
