The other new Superfood Latte Powder!
Obviously, this one is a riff on a Golden Milk recipe – and certainly there are a lot of golden milk/turmeric latte powders out there that exist. Honestly, of the two that were released, I find this one the least exciting. Obviously I have a huge amount of bias here, but I do think that this is one of the best (if not the best) golden milk mixes I’ve ever tried. Yes, even though there are so many iterations of this profile out there.
It’s turmeric forward as it should be, but the things that make this feel different to me are the inclusion of ginger and molasses powder. The ginger is kind of two-fold in why it was included. Firstly, it supports the functional benefits. Secondly, having that additional spice note adds more nuance/depth to the mix. Plus, I find this ginger powder in particular is very clean with a nice heat to it, so that also helps since turmeric can taste very earthy.
I know molasses is a bit more of a polarizing flavour, but we were very careful in how much was used in the formulation. We wanted the natural dark, dense sweetness that it adds without the bitterness or is becoming too invasive of a flavour. I think we pulled that off – it’s another layer of flavour in this more nuanced mix, and a heavier and more base-y one at that – which is great because the turmeric and ginger are a little more zesty and rest higher on the palate. Plus, the ginger and molasses combo has an ever so slight gingerbread like taste which I love (even though, personally, I don’t love turmeric).
Like the Ashwaganda Pumpkin Powder, this was developed specifically to be made in milk or milk alternatives. I love it with coconut milk. However, you can have it on its own as well – it’s just really intense tasting.
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
