I recently had the pleasure of trying a turmeric tea from Copper Cup. As a huge fan of turmeric, I was extremely excited to try this!
The tea includes all organic ingredients: coconut milk powder, coconut sugar, turmeric powder, ginger powder, black pepper, vanilla powder, ginseng, salt, cayenne pepper.
Persian cuisine uses turmeric frequently but I never imagined how it might taste in tea. This mix is a powder that creates a latte so I tried it with two different types of milk; almond and cow's milk.
Almond Milk- Once mixed the tea had a dominant turmeric smell with a hint of coconut and pepper. So when I sniffed the tea I first got a BAM smell of turmeric then came the coconut and then the pepper.
As far as flavor goes I could definitely taste the turmeric and it was a bit spicy. Here is the kicker, I'm not a huge fan of almond milk and I felt as though that almond milk taste (that I don't really like) came through the most. I couldn't put my finger on it at first but after several sips there was something off about the flavor to me.
If you're an almond milk lover though, I encourage you to try it!
Cow's Milk- AWW Yea! This is what I'm talking about!
So, I had a completely different experience when I made the tea with cow's milk. The color was the same rich yellow color but the aroma was definitely different. Instead of the ingredients scent coming through, It had a very milky smell.
Mixing the powder with cow's milk was SO GOOD. Be weary of what kind of milk you try this with, make sure that you really like the taste of the milk you use because it definitely affects the flavor. The taste had hints of all the different ingredients...coconut...turmeric...pepper etc and it was topped off with a milky goodness. Copper Cup boasts about very little sugar in their mix which is great but the combination of the milk and the mix had the perfect amount of sweetness.
It's interesting that with the almond milk, the scent was dominated by the ingredients but the flavor was not and it was the exact opposite with the cow's milk. I think you can make this mix work easily for whatever your taste preferences are!
If you like your tea a little sweeter I would suggest trying some regular sugar or rock sugar.
Not convinced? Turmeric has incredible anti-inflammatory properties and can also increase brain function! The best part? It's caffeine free! Although I love my caffeine, sometimes I want an extra cup, but not the extra caffeine!
