Turmeric Chai Latte

Turmeric Chai Latte

Prep / Cook / Total    -    15 / 30 / 45min


• 2 1/4 cups water
• 6 tbsp coconut sugar
• 4 black tea bags
• 2 tsp ground cinnamon
• 1 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
• 1 tsp vanilla extract
• 1 tsp ground ginger
• 1 tsp ground cardamom
• 1/4 tsp ground cloves
• 1/8 tsp ground coriander
• small pinch of black pepper

Latte ingredients – make 1 single Latte

• 3/4 cup coconut milk (or the milk of your choice – coconut and regular milk froth the best)
• 3/4 tsp coconut sugar (more or less to taste)
• 1/4 cup tea concentrate
• 1/8 tsp turmeric


Step 1. To make the tea concentrate, combine all ingredients, except for tea bags and vanilla, in a small saucepan. Bring to the boil. Remove from heat and add the tea bags and vanilla. Let the mixture steep for at least 10 minutes.

Step 2. Pour through a fine mesh strainer. Put the concentrate into a sealable container and refrigerate until ready to use. This will keep for up to 7 days. Shake well before using.

Step 3. To make 1 latte, whisk together the coconut milk, coconut sugar and turmeric in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat just until the mixture bubbles around the edges of the pan. Remove from heat.

Step 4. Combine the warm milk mixture with 1/4 cup of the tea concentrate in a glass. Stir to combine. Garnish with ground cinnamon if desired. You can adjust the sweetness level by adding more or less sugar to taste; I prefer this only mildly sweet.

“With the 21st century explosion of coffee houses, people are now experimenting away from the standard ‘flat white’. Break the mould and join the adventure.”
