Yogi Tea in the Kitchen: Chai-Spiced Turmeric Latte
Try this delicious twist on a traditional Chai Latte, made with Yogi Chai Black tea!
Our Chai Black tea blends rich Assam Black Tea with Cinnamon, Cardamom and Ginger; spices traditionally used for centuries in Ayurveda for their warming properties. This aromatic and full-flavored blend is delicious when enjoyed on its own, but can also serve as the perfect base for a smooth, richly-spiced latte.
This easy-to-make variation on a traditional chai latte features coconut milk for a touch of sweetness and Turmeric, an herbaceous perennial that has been traditionally used in Ayurveda to promote joint health and healthy digestion.
