Golden Goddess Tea Recipe
3 cups water
1 fresh turmeric root (1 to 2 inches), peeled and thinly sliced
(*Or you can use dried turmeric powder)
1 ginger root (1 inch), thinly sliced
5 tulsi leaves (fresh or dried), whole
1 lemon, fresh squeezed
Pinch of ground black pepper
Honey to taste
– In a tea kettle or saucepan, add water, turmeric, ginger, pepper and tulsi.
– Bring to a boil and let cook for 10 minutes.
– Using a small strainer (optional), pour the liquid only into 2 serving cups.
– Squeeze 1/2 of a lemon into each cup.
– Add honey to taste.
– Serve and enjoy!
(If you used the dried forms of any of the herbs above, it’s a good idea to pour the tea through a strainer and then into serving cups.)
Walk in peace.
