Turmeric Tea

1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon dried turmeric (or a 1/2-inch piece fresh turmeric, peeled and grated)
1 1/2-inch piece ginger, peeled and grated
1 cardamom pod
1 cinnamon stick
3 black peppercorns
1/2 tablespoon honey
1 cup milk (or nut milk)
1 black tea bag

In a small pan over low heat, add the water, turmeric, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, peppercorns and honey. Bring to a simmer, then pour in milk, and add the tea bag. When milk is steaming, use a spoon to taste, and add more honey if you like. Pour through a fine-mesh strainer right into a cup, and drink while hot.
