This combo of ginger, lemon, turmeric, rooibos tea, and apple cider vinegar makes a bracing tonic. If you like these flavors separately, you’ll love them together.
  • 2 bags rooibos tea
  • 1 cup or so boiling water
  • 1-inch piece fresh turmeric, sliced (or use ½ to 1 teaspoon dried)
  • 1- to 1½-inch piece ginger, sliced, or 1 tablespoon squeezable ginger
  • Juice of ½ to 1 lemon, to taste
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar
  • Pinch of cinnamon, optional
  • 4 cups fresh water
  • Liquid or powdered stevia or other sweetener to taste, optional
  1. Let the two teabags steep in the boiling water for at least 15 minutes.
  2. If using fresh turmeric and ginger, you might like to do this in a blender. Combine them in the blender with a small amount of water and process until smooth.
  3. Otherwise, combine dried turmeric, squeezable ginger, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, optional cinnamon, and the steeped tea in a glass pitcher. Stir up vigorously with a large spoon or butter knife.
  4. Add the remaining water, then sweeten (or not) as desired.
  5. Stir the mixture up each time before pouring. Refrigerate unused portions
