Chai Ritual #9 mamashanti’s organic golden turmeric chai

Chai Ritual #9 mamashanti’s organic golden turmeric chai

I’ve been busy here at mamashanti HQ, blending and brewing and blending some more to create the perfect Organic Golden Turmeric Chai.  I’ve taken my signature spice blend to create the most delightful golden turmeric chai experience. This chai is ground super-fine and gives you a simple way to brew instant golden chai lattes with any milk or enjoy it in it’s purest form by brewing with filtered water.

Here are two ways to make Golden Turmeric Lattes.  One takes a little bit of forward planning, then gives you instant brewing options, the other takes a little more time when brewing…  try both versions, you’ll be brewing Instagram worthy lattes in no time!

Turmeric Paste for Instant Golden Turmeric Chai Lattes
1/4 Cup of mamashanti’s very pleasing organic golden turmeric chai
½ Cup of filtered water and an extra 1/4 Cup to add
1/4  Teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
1/4 Cup of coconut oil or creamed coconut paste

Simmer: chai, pepper and 1/2 Cup of water in a small saucepan then add the extra 1/4 cup of water. Continue to cook on low heat until you have a thick, smooth, aromatic paste.
Blend: in coconut oil or creamed coconut. Remove from heat.
Pour: into a sterilised jar.  Cool completely before putting on the lid and storing in the fridge.
Store: for up to 3 weeks in the fridge, always use a clean, dry spoon to scoop out turmeric paste.

Instant Creamy Golden Turmeric Chai Latte
1/2 teaspoon of mamashanti’s very pleasing organic golden turmeric chai paste
350ml mug of heated rice milk (or your preferred milk)

Place: turmeric chai paste into your mug.
Pour: hot milk into the mug.
Blend: milk into the turmeric chai paste.
Sip: your creamy liquid gold slowly as you feel yourself preparing for a superb day.
Tip: By brewing a batch of turmeric paste, you’ll have this amazing potion to brew up golden chai lattes in the blink of an eye – or the time you need to heat up a mug of milk.

 

Creamy Golden Turmeric Chai – Leisurely Style
1 teaspoon of mamashanti’s very pleasing organic golden turmeric chai
350ml mug of rice milk (or your preferred milk)
a couple of grinds of fresh black pepper
a splash of coconut milk or dollop of creamed coconut paste

Simmer: milk, chai and pepper in a small saucepan for around 15 minutes (this is when I head off to take a shower). Turn off the hotplate.
Steep: your brew with a lid on for 5 minutes to extract maximum spice intensity.
Blend: coconut paste if using into this heady brew and pour into preheated mugs.
Share: with someone dear to you.
Sip: your creamy liquid gold slowly as you feel yourself preparing for a superb day.
Tip: This is the method I usually use to brew my turmeric chai.  It appears to take longer, but has simply become an integral part of my morning routine… Get up, heat chai, take shower, steep chai enjoy with sturdy breakfast and lively banter!
