Satisfy your savory sensibilities with a touch of gold. Our Golden Turmeric Chai features earthy turmeric with the warming spiciness of ginger, and is softly sweetened by a blend of cinnamon, clove, and a hint of fennel. It finishes off with a slight fiery kick of black peppercorn. The suggested serving is one teaspoon per cup of water or milk of preference for a golden milk latte!
Turmeric has been used in India for thousands of years as a spice and medicinal herb. It contains vibrant yellow curcumin, with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities (and a great dye – don’t spill it on white clothes!). But curcumin is only one among a palette of curcuminoids, plus a variety of compounds known as tumerones, all of which contribute to the invigorating and restorative power of this much-loved herb. Read our blog article about Turmeric Blends.
A note about the health benefits of turmeric: The active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin, is absorbed into the body much better when combined with piperine, a compound in black pepper. It is very common to combine turmeric and black pepper, as in our Turmeric Cider Spice Org Herbal Blend, to enhance health benefits. The other Turmeric Blends are meant to appeal to wider audiences, so they omit the black pepper in favor of more sweet spices and fruits, etc. But if you would like to maximize the absorption of immune-boosting curcumin, you can just add a little bit of fresh-ground pepper to your cup – it will be even zestier!
