Immunity-Boosting Ginger and Turmeric Tea: Your Ultimate Cold Relief Elixir

This ginger tea works wonders! It’s a lifesaver at the first signs of a cold—quickly gets you back on your feet and provides a lot of energy. Moreover, this ginger tea is an excellent preventive measure against the flu and colds. It greatly strengthens and boosts immunity.

Or the Golden Elixir, as it’s called in its homeland—in India.

Phew! Who wants to get sick? Frankly, no one wants to waste time on it.

Tell me, which woman after 40 has the time and opportunity to get sick? There’s so much to handle that there’s no time or strength left for illnesses (as paradoxical as it may sound, it’s the bitter truth of motherhood).

You need to pick yourself up urgently at the first signs of a cold: runny nose, sore throat, cough, splitting headache… Don’t give the disease a chance to develop into something major. This tea always saves me. It’s just magical! (knock on wood!)

In addition, you can and should drink this ginger tea for prevention during the peak of all these seasonal viral infections.

Besides all the measures that should be taken immediately at the first symptoms of illness, one of our favorite remedies is tea. We drink teas with raspberry, with lemon, with ginger. But you can prepare a tea that will not only warm and delight with a pleasant taste but will also actively fight an approaching illness.

Immunity-Boosting Ginger Tea

This tea is not just for boosting immunity, awakening all the body’s defense functions. It’s also a tea with pronounced anti-inflammatory and cleansing properties. But right now, we’re interested in it in terms of improving immunity and helping with cold symptoms.

This tea is not just my favorite; it really works immediately. The nose starts to breathe, the throat is no longer sore, the cough subsides, and the head no longer feels like it’s carrying ten tons. And most importantly, the strength returns, which is so lacking during illness.

In the composition of this wonderful drink is the well-known for its antiviral properties ginger, beloved honey, a surprise—turmeric (!!), and one secret ingredient (let’s keep the intrigue a bit longer))), and, of course, lemon. A bit about the important components of this amazing immunity-boosting tea, so you understand what each of them brings to the sacred cause of strengthening the body.


This magical root is known to everyone; everyone has heard about its properties as a natural antibiotic, curing various infections. But it also helps with detoxification, inflammation, joint pain, nausea (even pregnancy nausea), and motion sickness (just suck on a piece of ginger, and no waves will scare you). It looks great in juices and smoothies, soups, and even desserts, adding a hot and spicy taste. It’s my personal favorite.


A very powerful antioxidant. It has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic practice as a plant that cleanses the entire body, especially the liver. It is used to support digestion, treat fever, infections, and inflammation. Some studies show that turmeric can act as a pain reliever and fever reducer (a natural substitute for ibuprofen).

Black Pepper

Black pepper (here it is, the secret ingredient!) and turmeric—a surprisingly powerful duo. Scientists have proven that black pepper increases the bioavailability of turmeric a thousand fold!!!


Lemon is rich in vitamin C, which is crucial for activating all protective functions of the body. That’s why we so often add lemon to all teas. Well, for the taste, of course)))

So let’s move on to the recipe for ginger and turmeric tea to boost immunity.

Recipe for Cold Relief Ginger Tea

  • 1/2 cup / 120 ml honey
  • 2-4 tbsp freshly grated ginger
  • 2 tbsp ground turmeric (or grated turmeric if you can find it)
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 pinches of ground black pepper

Mix all the ingredients in a glass jar, where it will be convenient to store this mixture. You can add more ginger or turmeric if you wish. The taste should be very rich.

When you decide to drink this tea, take only a few teaspoons of this mixture. Pour with water that has recently boiled but has cooled slightly (to preserve the value of honey), stir, and drink. You can also add this mixture to your favorite tea. Personally, I always add about 2 teaspoons of lemon juice. I think it makes the taste richer. Drink as desired and as needed, on average 2-3 cups a day.

Store the mixture in the refrigerator for no more than five days.
