How to Make Herbal Hot Tea

First, peel and grate the turmeric using a standard vegetable peeler and grater. 

The benefits of turmeric are extensive. Turmeric, and its active ingredient curcumin, may have anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antioxidant, and other amazing beneficial properties. Some theories say that the active compound in turmeric is activated by the addition of black pepper. You can add a pinch of black pepper to the tea for better absorption of curcumin if you’d like.

Next, peel and slice the ginger root. Ginger has been used for generations for its natural medicinal properties. It has been known to possibly treat respiratory problems, aid in digestion, and improve the immune system.
