You’ll find turmeric in a great deal of traditional savoury dishes, including Thai and Indian curries, East Asian pickles, and Vietnamese pancakes. However, this aromatic spice is appearing more frequently in other kinds of foods too. At the breakfast table, it might be blended into an invigorating fruit juice, drunk as a creamy yoghurt, or stirred into eggs or porridge oats for a golden start to your day.
In some UK coffee shops, a smoky turmeric latte is currently all the rage. When drunk alone with milk, turmeric can be rather pungent. Spices like cinnamon, vanilla, and ginger can help to soften the flavour, and adding honey or maple syrup will sweeten and lift.
Twinings has also blended a tasty spiced infusion with turmeric at its heart. Our Turmeric Superblend contains 45% turmeric, along with plenty of other warming fruits and herbs. Here, sweet, zesty lemongrass and orange meet comforting liquorice and star anise. The result is a tangy, slightly woody, award-winning* mix of autumnal flavours.
