My boys call them my pee jars.

Well no it’s not pee it’s my tea.

Lemon, fresh ginger and turmeric tea. In a 1 lt jar add 1/2 a lemon, 1 – 2 tsp of fresh ginger and 1/4 tsp turmeric and a twist of cracked pepper. Cover with just enough boiling water, let sit over night…. In the morning squeeze the lemon and top up with boiling water. I prep 3-4 jars. Sooooo many health benefits of this tea but it also is a beautiful tea.
