Steep & Sip is a tea company based off of Phoenix, Arizona. On their website, they state that they believe in reaping the health benefits of the natural herbs Earth has given us. They have a good selection of tea and tisanes, as well as a steep club and bundles.
Steep & Sip contacted me a while ago and asked me to choose a tea from their shop in exchange of a review. Glady’s Golden Milk immediately caught my eye, as I really enjoy turmeric and I do not see turmeric blends too often.
The packaging comes in a small, black sealable bag. On the back, there is brewing information, as well as ingredients. In addition to this, we get another bag that includes several cloth stringback bags. I personally did not use them, as I always use infusers for my tea. However, I found it really awesome that they include them because I know many people who prefer tea bags rather than loose leaf tea for this. This is also the first time I see any tea companies send out these cloth bags.
Glady’s Golden Milk is a blend of cardamom, cinnamon, clove, ginger, pepper, and turmeric. I don’t know about you, but all of those ingredients sound like absolute heaven to me. I mainly chose this blend for the turmeric and boy, it did not disappoint.
As soon as you open the bag, you are hit with a very strong smell of turmeric and you can see it too. All the other ingredients are covered with powdered turmeric, making this a very colorful blend. I love the quality of the ingredients such as the cardamom- it is not broken up at all. All in all, the blend is very balanced in terms of the quantity of its ingredients.
As you probably have already guessed by the ingredients, this tastes A LOT like turmeric. All I can say is, if you are not a turmeric fan, stay AWAY. However, if you like it, you are sure to love this blend. Some of the other prominent tastes are the ginger and the clove. I was able to do two infusions out of one serving of tea without sacrificing taste.
Additionally, Steep & Sip recommends that we make a golden milk with this blend by mixing it with milk, coconut oil and sweetener. I had to try it this way and it was amazing! I am usually not a fan of making drinks from my blends but this was the exception for me. The turmeric is strong enough that it does not taste too diluted with the milk and I found it relaxing and amazing for my stomach.
I honestly have nothing bad to say about this blend and this company. I enjoyed the blend so much that I already ran out of the sample they sent me and ordered myself a larger bag of it. (This time I ordered another blend as well so be on the lookout for that review!) If you are looking for more turmeric blends, go check this one out. You may have noticed, I did not speak to the health benefits of the blend- I tend not to just because I can’t claim to have received health benefits from a drink. However, I have noticed that my stomach feels calm when I drink this and I have also had it lots of times right before bed and it helps me settle down. However, with or without the health benefits, this is an awesome blend and I whole heartedly recommend it. Thank you so much to Steep & Sip for sending this my way.
Also, if you have other turmeric blend suggestions, send them my way! 🙂
