Golden spice chai, Golden grind, Golden milk/ Mylk or turmeric latte – an unlikely combination of milk and turmeric root – is 2016’s drink of choice."Golden milk” is among the top online searches associated with the spice. Turmeric lattes are now being sold at cafes from Sydney to San Francisco, and the drink is gaining fans in Australia. The taste when balanced with chai spices is a very enjoyable, creamy smooth brew with the subtle blend of chai spices. A perfect way to increase turmeric and other chai spices into your diet if curries are not your thing. The brew can be made with hot water or any milk.
It is a pleasant way for health-conscious diners to get a fix of turmeric. At first, it seems an odd concept. Turmeric is mostly known as a curry ingredient that leaves indelible yellow stains on appliances and fingernails. And, save for the aeration and the artistic lashes of cinnamon, the turmeric latte bears little similarity to its caffeinated namesake. Turmeric is the latest health-food trend to originate from the south Asian pantry, another sign that the Indian subcontinent may be ahead of the hipster curve. Turmeric and milk is a fairly well-entrenched drink in the region’s food culture, where it is considered restorative.
The earthiness of the turmeric is complimented by the sweetness of cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, and ginger, after straining the drink is creamy, with the comforting quality of a warm, yet slightly sweet, soup. It tastes nice when it has cooled down, too.
All of our chai blends are full of spices that are beneficial to your health. They are preservative-free, additive-free, filler-free, and contain low or zero salt. The intense flavor from our spice blends means a little goes a long way. History seems to have filtered into the turmeric latte’s current run of success. It is promoted for its health benefits – as an anti-inflammatory and an alternative to a caffeinated drink – it is particularly popular with customers in the mornings.

Sichuan Pepper is an oriental fruit grown on a small ash tree native to the Sichuan province of China. Even though it is called pepper, it is not a true pepper and is not related to black peppercorns, which are from India. The berries have a warm peppery fragrance, with citrus notes & a clean fresh aftertaste leaving a slightly numbing sensation on the tongue. It is the outer husk that has all the flavour, the internal hard black seed is edible but can add a bitter taste. It is a key ingredient in Chinese cuisine and used in some Asian recipes. It is used in our chilli sichuan salt and calamari salt and pepper blends.
Oregano, one of the most popular herbs worldwide, is a member of the mint family and often called wild marjoram. It is a small herb with dark-green leaf and is known for its bold, warm, balsamic herb flavour, with a slightly bitter taste. Its strong flavour marries well with tomato and basil making it a vital ingredient for authentic Italian and Greek cooking. It is also perfect addition to garlic for the Mediterranean, Philippine and Mexican cuisine.
White Pepper is black pepper that has been soaked to remove the outer husk. It is hotter and less fragrant than black pepper. It is one of the most versatile spices, particularly used in European cooking so as to not blemish creamy white sauces with black specs of pepper.
