Ginger and turmeric has always been one of my favourite combinations whether it is for food or drinks, they go so well together (see my lemongrass, ginger & turmeric kombucha recipe here or my hot lemongrass, ginger & turmeric tea which I drink daily here :) This ginger, turmeric and black pepper kombucha tea combination is a favourite in our house, we usually make a bottle each day along with my kids favourite raspberry kombucha.
Turmeric is one of natures all round superfoods with the main active ingredient curcumin known for it's anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and anti-oxidant properties. Piperine found in black pepper helps the body absorb more of the curcumin but doesn't take over the fragrant flavour of the ginger and turmeric so don't be afraid to add the pepper :)
I can't really say enough about the benefits of kombucha tea. It has helped our family heal, get stronger and especially for my now 7 year old who cleared his recurrent clostridium difficile infection thanks to the power of fermented veggies (see how I got my kids to eat fermented veggies here) and kombucha.
Before you start with flavouring your kombucha tea, you need to have some already fermented kombucha tea. If you don't, you can get the basic recipe here and find where to get a SCOBY here.
