Let the two Freshpak teabags steep in the boiling water for at least 15 minutes. Remove tea bag after brewing.

If using fresh turmeric and ginger, you might like to do this in a blender. Combine them in the blender with a small amount of water and process until smooth.

Otherwise, combine dried turmeric, squeezable ginger, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, optional cinnamon, and the steeped tea in a glass pitcher. Stir up vigorously with a large spoon or butter knife.

Add the remaining water, then sweeten (or not) as desired.

Stir the mixture up each time before pouring. Refrigerate unused portions.

Enjoy with ice.
