My take on Turmeric Latte or Golden Milk. I love the ancient Ayurvedic remedy, Golden Milk, and often recommend it to my clients. It is immune boosting, relaxing and anti inflammatory. However it can be a bit of a faff to make and being a lark I am often too sleepy at night to be bothered so I decided to make this blend and I laced it with a plethora of wonderful herbs and spices and mixed with Rooibos.
Rooibos – the relaxing and antioxidant red bush tea from Africa
Turmeric – the wonderful anti inflammatory spice
Ashwagandha – a herb which has so many benefits but overall is strengthening to the immune system and helps people to withstand stress
Ginger – the pungent and anti-inflammatory root so good for stomachs
Cloves – the analgesic spice
Cardamom – the warming aromatic digestive which relieves bloating and trapped wind
Black Pepper – which helps our bodies to absorb other nutrients particularly turmeric
Orange Peel – antioxidant and uplifting
Saffron – the magical yellow antidepressant
Add a dessertspoon of this blend to a mug of milk and heat gently and slowly allowing the spices to infuse into the milk.
Then whisk and strain.
The perfect bedtime drink.
As with all Purbeck Apothecary teas, the packaging is compostable.
