Can you believe its already September?!?!?! I don’t know about you but I love the Fall and cool crisp weather. One of the best things about the changing weather is the transition from cold drinks to warmer ones full of comforting spices. A few years ago I reviewed DONA chai and this year I decided to share with you the GOLD that is DONA turmeric!
DONA is a BROOKLYN BRAND! And it is always such a thrill to promote local businesses and brands in the area. Take a peek at an excerpt from their page to learn more.
At Dona, we craft spice-based tea concentrates & sodas. Our quality begins with our ingredients. We source spices from collectives across the world, paying attention to place of origin, growing conditions, and end quality. Each spice is cupped to test for flavor profile, natural sweetness, and body. Our brewing process begins with whole spices that are ground fresh per batch. Then, our spices are slow steeped to build complexity. The result is a bold, balanced, and flavorful drink.
We value sustainability. After our brewing process, all of our ingredients are composted locally.
I first came across this magical concentrate when I ordered a “turmeric iced tea” from a local coffee shop. They let me know that they didn’t have have turmeric iced tea but instead they offered to make me a special concoction. This concoction was 1/2 DONA turmeric concentrate and 1/2 sparkling water. Let me tell you…….this was the most delicious and refreshing turmeric beverage that I have tried to date! I asked some more questions regarding the concentrate that they use and to my surprise it was a company I was already familiar with…DONA. How a turmeric concentrate was released without my knowing of it is beyond me but I am so glad that it is now a part of my life. The concentrate is absolutely perfect for everything from cooking to a traditional turmeric latte. I purchased 2 bottles and it is almost time for a new order. That being said, I recommend y’all place some LARGE orders when you are ready to try this out!
DONA has phenomenal chai and I am thrilled to say that the turmeric concentrate is right up there on the same level. They also have a line of soda’s that I haven’t had a chance to try out yet ( I’m sure they are fabulous) and a NEW turmeric concentrate will be released soon. This new turmeric concentrate is made with Nicaraguan Tumeric and have 4x the curcumin level of traditional turmeric. I can not wait to get my hands on this new product and I hope y’all will purchase some too.
Keep on Keeping on
