UPDATE (19/05/2018): Food & Lifestyle writer Sa’idah decided to try out the Turmeric Latte for herself to see what the hype’s all about and came to a conclusion that she prefers her turmeric in either cold-pressed juices or savoury Asian dishes. The taste of the turmeric and ginger was quite strong for her taste buds however, she suggests that if you do wish to try it out, start with as little turmeric as possible. Work your way from there to have it tailored to your preference. You could even use regular milk instead of almond.
