Turmeric Tea Latte

Turmeric Tea Latte

When your turmeric tea latte matches your thrift store teacups... 💛

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 — 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.
