streetsmarts: A winter morning pick-me-up/ultimate flu-buster:
ingredients (for one cup of tea):
2 slices fresh turmeric root
1/2 cinnamon stick
1 slice fresh ginger
1 tsp. raw honey
16 oz. water
coconut milk (optional)
In a small sauce pot bring the water to a low boil. Add the turmeric, ginger and cinnamon. Reduce heat and let simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the honey. Strain the tea through a fine mesh strainer and serve as-is, or with a splash of coconut milk.
