Turmeric Chai Latte 

Recipe Credit: Tory Avery

Yields 8 Servings of tea concentrate

Total Time: 15 Min

Tea Concentrate Ingredients:

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 – Makes 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 – to taste

1/4 cup tea concentrate

1/8 tsp turmeric

You will also need:

Small saucepan, fine mesh strainer, immersion blender (optional)

To make the tea concentrate, combine all ingredients except for tea bags and vanilla in a small saucepan. Bring to boil.

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 desire. 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 14 cup of tea concentrate and serve.
