My “slightly different” golden milk has a hint of orange that complements the sultry spices and creamy nut milk. Delicious and good for you, this cold weather beverage is comfort in a mug.


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 orange spice teabag (I use Stash brand)
  • 1-inch knob ginger root, roughly chopped
  • zest of 1/2 an orange, optional
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/21 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 4 green cardamom pods
  • 2 whole star anise
  • 5 whole cloves
  • 5 peppercorns
  • 2 cups non-dairy milk
  • sweetener, to taste (I use NuNaturals Vanilla Syrup)


  1. Pour the water into a medium-sized saucepan, cut open the teabag and add the contents. Add the ginger root, zest, cinnamon, turmeric, cardamom pods, star anise, cloves, and peppercorns. Bring to a boil, then remove from the heat and add the non-dairy milk. Cover and let sit for 15-20 minutes.
  2. Carefully strain the solids from the pan and discard.
  3. Add sweetener, taste, and adjust. Gently re-heat and divide the golden milk between two mugs.
