Turmeric & Ginger Tea

I’m often stopped on the street and asked “Chad, how do you do it? How do you stay so damn handsome, vibrant and virile?”

Well, the universe is full of mystery and wonder that can’t all be answered, but for you, I’ll reveal one and only one of my precious beauty secrets, at no cost: turmeric & ginger tea.

Seriously, it’s good stuff, easy to make, and helps with aches and pains.

Step 1: Get some turmeric and ginger root – how much is up to you, but I make it pretty strong and then dilute down as I use it. (That’s turmeric there on the left and ginger on the right.)

Step 2: Use a cheese grater to shred the roots. Warning: turmeric will stain your counter top. (Somewhere along the way, I switched things around: that’s ginger on the left and turmeric on the right.)

Step 3: Put in a saucepan with some water (again, how much is up to you but if it’s concentrated then you can store it in a smaller container and dilute it later), bring to boil, then bring it down to a low simmer for about 20 minutes.

Step 4: Let it cool, then pour through a strainer into a vessel of choice – I use an old rum bottle and then keep it refrigerated.

Step 5: Dilute it down to your liking, add some honey, Ceylon cinnamon, and enjoy!
