This ginger turmeric tea is a tasty alternative to supplements if you have trouble including anti-inflammatory spices in your diet. I believe this tea is popular in Okinawa, Japan. Turmeric is also used for medicinal purposes in India. Remember that turmeric stains; I make this tea in an old mason jar, wrapped in an old tea towel!
