COVID19: Ginger, Garlic & Turmeric Immune Boosting Tea

In the midst of covid19 global pandemic, I would like to share an immune boosting tea recipe.

I came up with this recipe by mixing 2 highly effective immune boosting remedies; the first is a common cold and cough remedy I learned in Ethiopia and the second a Tulsi tea I discovered in India.

Only 3 ingredients are needed, I am pretty sure you already have these items laying around in your kitchen.


Ginger has anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative properties, many consume it to recover from a cold or the flu. It offers various health benefits and can also be incorporated in a variety of dishes, desserts, teas.


Very closely related to ginger Turmeric is a yellow root some people use to spice up their cooking, it is also present in many alternative medicine. Known to improve a person’s immune response, turmeric too has an incredible antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, due to the numerous qualities of curcumin a compound in turmeric.


Widely used as a flavoring in cooking, it is often taken to prevent, treat a wide range of disease, garlic is known to be a powerful immune system booster as well as a common home remedy in the prevention of colds among other benefits. It contains a powerful compound called allicin.

Traditionally, Turmeric, Ginger and Garlic have been used to enhance immune function, to help protect the body against illness and infection.

Although very active on their own, these 3 super ingredients combined will result in a great immune boosting elixir.


3 Cups of water

3 Garlic Cloves

1 tablespoon of fresh Turmeric

1 tablespoon of Fresh Ginger

1 teaspoon honey (optional)

Juice of a ½ lemon (optional)

Healthy and simple this tea requires 15 minutes of your time, 3 ingredients, 3 cups of water and 1 pot.

The base of this concoction is water, freshly grated turmeric, ginger and garlic.


To a small saucepan add 3 cups of water.

Bring the water to boil over medium heat, while the water is heating, grate the turmeric, ginger and garlic until its make a smooth paste. I used a traditional wooden African spice grinder to obtain a paste.

As soon as the water is simmering, drop the turmeric, ginger and garlic paste is the water, turn the heat off and cover the saucepan.

Let the mixture infuse for 10 minutes.

Set a small strainer over a serving glass, pour the tea and simply enjoy!

For those finding the concoction too strong, add honey and lemon juice as desired.

Store the strained leftovers in the refrigerator up to 3 days.
