Turmeric Chai Tea is a spiced chai tea with a black peppercorn finish that will warm you to your soul.
This delightful Turmeric Chai Tea is like a ray of sunshine in a cup. With its vibrant golden hue and aromatic spices, it promises to awaken your senses and provide a comforting warmth.
Turmeric, known for its earthy and slightly bitter taste, harmonizes beautifully with the warm spiciness of ginger and clove. It creates a delightful balance that will dance on your palate. The soft sweet flavor of cinnamon and a touch of fennel add a unique twist, enhancing the overall flavor profile.
The black peppercorn finishes it off with a little kick that adds a delightful depth to each sip.
However, the black peppercorn is not just a flavor enhancer. It also boosts the absorption of curcumin by a staggering 2,000%! By nature, the liver attempts to eliminate curcumin. But the peppercorn hinders this process. This enables the beneficial anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects of curcumin to increase in the bloodstream.
Fat also helps the absorption of turmeric. Adding a little dairy (or almond milk, or coconut milk) will optimize the benefits of turmeric. The perfect reason to make a Turmeric Chai latte – help your body absorb the benefits of the turmeric.
The best part? Chai Turmeric is completely caffeine-free, making it the perfect choice for those seeking a soothing beverage without the jitters.
How to make a Turmeric Chai Latte
To make a turmeric chai tea latte, you can follow these simple steps:
Gather your ingredients: turmeric chai tea, milk (dairy, almond, or coconut), sweetener (if desired), and your favorite spice to sprinkle on top such as cinnamon or nutmeg.
Brew the turmeric chai tea: Steep one teaspoon of turmeric chai tea in water heated to 212° for about 5 minutes. You can adjust the steeping time to your taste preference.
Heat the milk: While the tea is steeping, heat the milk in a small saucepan over medium heat. You can use any type of milk you prefer, such as dairy milk, almond milk, or coconut milk. Heat the milk until it is hot but not boiling. For a thicker consistency, froth the milk to a creamy consistency.
- Once the tea is steeped, strain out the tea leaves and pour the tea into your cup or mug. Then, pour the hot milk into the cup with the tea. You can adjust the ratio of tea to milk based on your preference.
Add sweetener and spices: If desired, you can add a sweetener like honey or maple syrup to taste. Mix well. Add a dollop of frothed milk on top and sprinkle some extra spices like cinnamon or nutmeg for added flavor.
- Sip and enjoy this golden chai latte.
