Take a break from everyday stress and hassle with our Taka Turmeric Instant Golden Latte. This favourite Indian drink is also known as haldi doodh or golden milk. Delectably smooth, and caffeine-free, our golden milk recipe combines a soothing blend of mild spices with organic turmeric and coconut milk powder. This instant turmeric latte mix is especially comforting as an evening or bedtime treat.
Our Turmeric Golden Latte is incredibly quick and simple to make. First, warm about 200ml of milk in a pan. Meanwhile, mix a generous teaspoon of Golden Latte powder in a mug with a little hot water, then blend into a smooth paste. Finally, top up your mug with the warmed milk, stir, then leave the spices to infuse for a few minutes before drinking.
For an even more indulgent experience, try adding a few drips of golden honey or a topping of frothed milk!

Finding the perfect ingredients for our deliciously smooth powdered drinks was quite a challenge! Our organic coconut milk powder is specially blended in Vietnam.
Our Vietnamese experts have developed a coconut milk powder recipe that contains:
The result is an exquisitely rich coconut milk powder that can be easily reconstituted into a delicious drink. Smooth and wholesome, our coconut milk powder is packed with oils that boost the natural properties of curcumin, one of the bioactive compounds in turmeric.
In our Taka Turmeric tea recipes, we use 100% organic Ceylon cinnamon. This sustainably grown spice is made from rolled quills of Cinnamomum verum bark. Cultivated mainly in Indonesia, this true form of cinnamon is famous for its delectable aroma and flavour.
Cinnamon is a deliciously fragrant, woody spice that’s often associated with festive treats like Christmas cakes and mulled wine. In India, cinnamon is an Ayurvedic spice that forms one of the main ingredients of Garam Masala.
Ceylon cinnamon adds subtle warmth and complexity to many of our spiced tea recipes.
The ginger plant, Zingiber officinale, is a close relative of turmeric. In both plants, it’s the roots that are used to make the delicious organic spices that flavour our Taka teas, drinks and supplements.
Ginger is a spice with long history – it plays a particularly important role in traditional Ayurvedic healing. Although ginger is recorded as being widely used in ancient India and the Far East, the spice was introduced to Europe by the Romans in the first century AD.
Ginger has a hot, stimulating flavour. When paired with a little lemon, ginger makes a deliciously comforting tea that lifts the spirits. Our Golden Ginger blend is a particularly tasty example!
There are various types of pepper which can be used to add warming flavours to foodstuffs and drinks. In our Taka tea recipes, we use the crushed, dried corns of Piper nigrum.
The hot, spicy flavour of black pepper comes from a natural compound called piperine. As well as making our spiced teas deliciously moreish and stimulating, piperine also has a special digestive synergy with turmeric.
Along with turmeric, our signature ingredient, you’ll find a warming pinch of black pepper in all of our Taka spiced tea recipes.
Cayenne pepper takes its name from the capital city of French Guiana in South America. Cayenne is a coastal city, built where the Cayenne river joins the Atlantic Ocean. Just like its country of origin, cayenne pepper has a dependable, consistent heat.
Individual cayenne peppers are the finger-shaped fruits of Capsicum annuum. As well as being widely available as a raw ingredient, cayenne pepper is also easy to find as a flaked or powdered spice.
Its consistent heat and rich depth of flavour makes cayenne pepper an incredibly popular ingredient for creating hot, spicy dishes. To add a little zing to our drinks and teas, we’ve added a tiny pinch of organic cayenne pepper to several of our Taka recipes!
Himalayan pink salt is believed to have been formed in dried ocean beds dating back to the early Jurassic era. At this time, the Earth was populated by dinosaurs like the Ichthyosaurus and Plesiosaurus.
The vast beds of salt lay covered and protected by volcanic larva and thick layers of ice for around 200 million years. As time passed, trace elements and minerals changed the colour of the pure salt crystals from white to delicate pink.
Eventually, the pristine, pink salt was discovered in the north of Pakistan, close to the Himalayan mountain ranges. Now, we’re delighted to be able to use this incredibly pure salt to season some of our most delicious Taka products!
