Turmeric Tea Latte

Turmeric Tea Latte

When your turmeric tea latte matches your thrift store teacups... πŸ’›

Last year we saw tea become the "it" drink. From lattes to cocktails, it was everywhere. We also saw the beginnings of turmeric's rise to power as a superfood. This year, it's a big trend. While not classified as tea (ICYMI - green, white, black, green, pu-erh and oolong teas all come from the same plant β€” Camellia sinensis), turmeric is a spice you can easily brew alongside some herbs for a instant pick-me-up.  

Turmeric Tea Latte

  • 1 tsp. Turmeric Spice tea from The Naked Leaf
  • 1 tsp. Turmeric spice/powder (I bought a bag from HomeSense!)
  • a pinch of black pepper

Pour hot, not boiling (wait a few minutes after your kettle stops), water over the tea, powder and pepper. Steep for 5 minutes.

  • 1 tsp. coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (steam or heat if you'd like, but I find the drink is the perfect temperature without) 

Mix in the coconut oil and almond milk (or your milk of choice). Drink! 

PS - The coconut oil helps with the absorption of curcumin aka turmeric's most active compound.
