Make this one a double! Two (or more!) delicious drinks with a single recipe, that is. These immune system boosting Turmeric Ginger Tea and Lemon Spritzer recipes are simple to make and full of health benefits. It’s so versatile, too! The Turmeric Ginger Tea can be served hot or cold, or chilled and mixed with honey, lemon, and soda water for a refreshing Lemon Spritzer. Whether you’re soothing a sore throat or wanting a refreshing summer BBQ spritzer, this recipe is perfect for you.

While the Turmeric Ginger Tea creates a comforting drink, for me, as we kick off the summer, this recipe shines as a crowd-pleasing mocktail. The Lemon Spritzer version of this tea recipe is subtly sweet, slightly spicy, and refreshingly effervescent. It will dazzle your tastebuds and your BBQ guests.

What is Turmeric Ginger Tea?

A combination of water steeped in fresh turmeric root and ginger root, Turmeric Ginger Tea is a great way to help balance your body’s inflammatory response. Turmeric root gets the majority of its benefits from curcumin, a powerful compound that extremely promising studies have shown to be highly effective at reducing inflammation. Cucurmin in turmeric also helps to maintain optimal blood pressure levels. Ginger root also is effective at reducing inflammation, and improving cholesterol levels.

Does this Tea Have Caffeine?

Absolutely not! Although it is called tea, there aren’t any tea leaves in this drink, which means it is caffeine free. The concentrate is high in antioxidants and contains vitamin c, beta carotene, and flavonoids. It also supports a healthy inflammatory response, promotes a healthy immune system and respiratory function, balances blood pressure, and helps maintain optimal cholesterol levels. It’s a delicious powerhouse you can whip up on the weekend and share with friends or enjoy all week.
