What is Golden Milk?
Golden Milk is a powdered tea made from turmeric, ginger, and Vietnamese cinnamon. Often, extra ingredients such as black pepper or coconut shavings are added to help boost its already plentiful health benefits.
It has been used in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. However today, this sweet, creamy, and delicious tasting tea has taken the tea drinking world by storm.
Taste of Golden Milk
Although it contains cinnamon, Golden Milk only has a slightly sweet flavor. Known for its creamy texture, many tea drinkers describe Golden Milk as being similar to Chai or Horchata. However, tea drinkers with more exotic tastes often add black pepper to their Golden Milk, making it have a slightly spicy aftertaste.
While the ingredients list for Golden Milk may not seem very appetizing to some, we at META have worked hard to ensure there is a perfect balance between the compounds to promote the healthiest and best tasting tea possible.
It can be brewed with water, milk, almond milk, and more. All of which will result in different and unique tasting versions of the tea.
Benefits of Golden Milk
The main ingredient in Golden Milk is turmeric, a yellow spice common in Asia. Within turmeric is curcumin, a compound known to help alleviate pain and aid with inflammation.
The second component in Golden Milk is ginger. Studies have shown that ginger is high in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
In addition to health benefits, Turmeric (and even Golden Milk) has been used as face mask to help remove acne and acne scars.
