Along with turmeric, cinnamon is also hailed for its anti-inflammatory benefits, so I added some of that to my tea mixture, too. I think this small amount makes for a nicely balanced flavor, but you can add extra cinnamon if you like.
Two 2 1/2 inch pieces (24 grams total) fresh turmeric root, finely grated
2-inch piece (13 grams) fresh ginger root, finely grated
Few grinds of black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup (80 grams) honey
Freshly squeezed juice of 1/2 a lemon
Combine all the ingredients in a medium jar. Stir until well blended. Cover with a lid, and store in the fridge. I usually mix a teaspoon with 6 to 8 ounces of hot water, and add a few more grinds of fresh black pepper.
