Chai Month part 3a – Golden Turmeric Chai

As we continue our exploration of the world of Chai blends, we’ll be making 2 stops this week. First over to Indonesia and then down to South America .

Golden Turmeric Chai

Golden Turmeric Chai combines black tea, ginger, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, and premium grade Indonesian Turmeric. The addition of this rich spice creates an especially gold-tinged infusion that is malty and spicy with an earthy sweetness that blends especially well with milk and sugar.

Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a flowering plant of the ginger family and native to India and Southeast Asia. The roots are harvested and boiled, dried and then ground down. Turmeric has grown in its culinary usage over the years, appearing in many sweet and savory dishes. It is desired for its potential health benefits and appealing bright gold color.
