Feeling a little under the weather? With antioxidants and immune-boosting ingredients like green tea, apple-cider vinegar, and fresh turmeric, this cuppa is a cure-all.


  • 1 cup boiling water

  • 1 bag green tea

  • 1 (1-inch piece) fresh turmeric, peeled and thinly sliced (or ¼ teaspoon ground)

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup

  • 1 tablespoon apple-cider vinegar


  1. Place tea bag and turmeric in a mug; fill with boiling water and let steep 3 minutes. Remove tea bag. Stir in lemon juice, maple syrup, and vinegar; serve.

Cook's Notes

Fresh turmeric has the highest nutritional payoff, but ground and cold-pressed pack a punch, too. Aim for two teaspoons a day to feel the effects.
