Thursday's Un-recipe: Tea!

One of the things I have found to be sort of fun is making my own tea! Tyler buys be a variety of loose leaf tea and then I generally have a good assortment of herbs and spices where I can make my own combos. 

As I have learned more and more about foods that fight inflammation, I tend to make teas that include these elements. Ginger and turmeric are some serious inflammation-fighting spices, so these are usually included in nearly every tea I make. 

Sometimes I make a single serving tea, other times I will make a whole pot. I find that I have to be careful with how much I drink in the evening because I end up making multiple trips to the bathroom! 32 ounces or a liter might be too much liquid in the evening!

Ginger-Turmeric Tea, sometimes called "Golden Tea" or "Golden Milk"
Single Serving
1 inch ginger or 1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 tbsp turmeric
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 lemon
1-2 ounces milk of choice

Directions: Whisk all ingredients together in a mug. Boil pot of water. Pour into mixture and whisk until all ingredients well mixed.

May add agave or honey if so desired.
