Indian Spice is a specialty herbal tea blend filled with powerful spices and herbs. Blended with all organic turmeric, Indian sarsaparilla, cardamom, black peppercorn and lemon peel, it will surely awaken your senses. It’s loaded with exotic flavors worthy of the Silk Road.
Turmeric is well known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits, making it super popular in recent years. It is the base of Indian Spice, one of our signature in-house blends. The intention for this blend was to make a tea that could be made into golden milk.
What is golden milk?
It’s an ancient traditional Ayurvedic beverage made with milk and spices such as turmeric, cardamom, cinnamon, peppercorn, etc.. The turmeric creates the golden color this delicious drink is named after. It’s deep and spicy and gives a unique flavor profile that will make you come back for more.
Indian Sarsaparilla adds a refreshingly light and warming flavor that pairs well with the spicy ingredients in this blend. Cardamom adds to the warmth with a minty, subtle peppercorn and eucalyptus tone. The black peppercorn and lemon peel enhance rest of the ingredients with their earthy spice and citrus notes.
The aroma alone has the power to take our imagination through time, back to the Silk Road where most of these ingredients were originally introduced on a global scale. I made a large cup of Indian Spice golden milk this morning and my house still smells like an Indian outdoor market!
Now that we are coming upon the colder months, this blend is a great ally to keep our bodies warm and flowing. Although I recommend drinking this tea with almond milk, or another milk alternative, it’s certainly not required. A lot of our customers prefer hot water instead, and that’s totally fine! Play around with it and explore your favorite way to drink it.
