Tumeric Tea Ingredients
2 1/4 cups water
6 tbsp coconut sugar or sugar-free alternative, monk 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
Pinch black pepper
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 – see method below
1/8 tsp turmeric
To make the tea concentrate, combine all ingredients except for tea bags and vanilla in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil.
Simmer turmeric chai latte spices.
Remove from heat and add the tea bags and vanilla. Let the mixture steep for at least 10 minutes.
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.
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.
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.
Note: If you prefer a frothy latte, use a milk frother or transfer the milk mixture to a deep container and pulse with an immersion blender until frothy. Then combine with 1/4 cup of tea concentrate and serve.
