A deliciously different latte!

Mmmm…. the ever popular latte, with so many amazing variations and found in just about every coffeehouse around it’s easy to get your fix. But if you’re looking for something truly unique, a spicy turmeric chai latte should be at the top of the list. The foundation for this distinctively different creation is TeaQuinox's bold and zesty Turmeric Chai blend... sure its great unembellished, but add frothed coconut milk and maple syrup and it gets a whole latte better! This sweet and savory treat is simple to prepare and it's sure to make you feel good from the inside out.

Traditionally, latte’s were little more than espresso and steamed milk, but today they can be found in a variety of styles and flavors. But a Turmeric Chai Latte? If you’ve never had one, it may sound like a leap of faith. Not only is this dairy free latte delicious, it’s got some amazing health benefits too.

Results from recent studies on the 'wonder-spice' turmeric are looking pretty promising. Not only can turmeric help alleviate joint pain and inflammation because of its powerful anti-inflammatory properties, it can also help reduce symptoms from a wide range of diseases, like osteoarthritis, ulcerative colitis, Alzheimer's disease and heart disease. This golden marvel is also an immune booster and may help fight certain types of cancer and autoimmune diseases.

We here at TeaQuinox are always looking for new ways to incorporate nutritionally beneficial elements into our herbal concoctions, so formulating a blend with turmeric and complimentary spices, like black pepper, ginger, and cinnamon was a no-brainer.

Supercharge your mind and body with a dairy-free, caffeine-free Spicy Turmeric Chai Latte... yum!!
