An intoxicating elixir, our organic turmeric chai is perfect on its own or in a creamy latte. Or for a more lively twist, infuse spirits with the loose tea for a spirited, vibrant yellow tipple. For a festive touch, we lightly dipped the rim of our glass in sugar with a touch of rose petals and edible silver leaf. It's a pretty, and optional, step.
