It’s officially September, which means cafes and restaurants officially have the right to launch full-force into promoting their coziest, snuggliest, and most warming of autumn fare. Starbucks didn’t even wait until September to begin promoting its popular seasonal favorite, the Pumpkin Spice Latte, and now it’s rolling out yet another treat — a new Latte With Turmeric, which is available to purchase in Starbucks London stores as of August 28.
Turmeric is an ancient spice that has recently been gaining a lot of popularity over social media (Google even called it a “breakout star” in 2016) for its vibrant, golden hue and mega-healing properties. Turmeric contains curcumin, a highly effective anti-inflammatory agent, as well as a host of other antioxidants, such as manganese, iron, fiber, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and magnesium.
Patrons can order this stunning drink from Starbucks with coconut, almond, or soy milk for a dairy-free treat.
The new Latte With Turmeric will remain available in almost 200 stores across the greater London and will run customers about £2.65 (or $3.41) for their smallest size.

This Sunshine Turmeric Latte by Buffy-Ellen Gill is silky and rejuvenating.
This luscious latte really takes the cake. If you’ve tried turmeric lattes that have been cropping up at cafes, you are going to absolutely love this homemade version. With its blend of silky smooth sunflower seeds and coconut milk, a spicy intoxicating medley of turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, vanilla, and black pepper, and a dash of natural sweetness from dates, you can bring a touch of the local café to your home.
