FAQs & Shipping

What are Zandi lattes?

They are herbal and spice infused latte blends that make delicious and nourishing hot or cold latte beverages. 

Are they spicy?

No not really, our aim is to provide the tastiest healthy latte - guaranteed. Expect a beautifully smooth, comforting experience with every sip. 

How do you make them?

Simply stir the powders through steamed milk.

Or use a milk warmer that comes with any coffee machine - pop the milk and powder in together and it will blend and heat it to the perfect brew. 

Which milk do I use?

We mostly recommend coconut, almond or any other non-dairy milk for maximum enjoyment. We don't recommend dairy milk for our Turmeric or Beet & Berry blends as it's flavour palette tends to overpower the flavours of the herbs and spices. However our Matcha and Chai love a soy or dairy milk pairing. 

Will I need hot water?

Not unless you'd like to. The Matcha and Turmeric blends do not like water above 80 degrees celsius as it will start to degrade the phytonutrients. Therefore with these blends best to mix into warm or cool water first, then top with hot water/milk. 

Do I need honey/sugar?

Yes and no. They are intended to be consumed without any sugar, however if you need to sweeten your brew a little then maple/agave syrup or any unrefined sugar is a great option. 

Do Zandi blends contain sugar?

No added sugar. You will find some natural sugars are present in the fruits used in the mixes, particularly our Beet & Berry blend.

Are Zandi blends vegan?

Yes, all of our blends are vegan friendly. 

Can I drink the blends if pregnant?

Yes, but always consult your doctor before doing so. 

Is it normal for the turmeric blend not to dissolve?

The answer is yes this is completely normal. 
As turmeric is incredibly fibrous it means some particles of it will never dissolve, however once the powder is submerged into your steamed milk all of the beneficial polyphenols (plant compounds), the more than 300 naturally occurring components including beta-carotene, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), calcium, flavonoids, fiber, iron, niacin, potassium, zinc and other nutrients and oils will be released into your latte for your body to digest. 
Using a plant milk that is high in healthy fats also helps with the powder dissolving as the fats pick up more of the particles and help carry the goodness through your gut lining into the body to be used. 
We recommend Pureharvest Coco Quench coconut milk, or any of their Almond milk range. Nutty Bruce also have a lovely Coconut/Almond blend we adore. 
Milks such as Soy or Skim milk that are low in fat, tend to leave a little more residue at the bottom. 
It is not recommended to drink the residue as the taste can be overpowering, however if you are stirring it throughout, this is a great way to get the powder moving. 
Here at HQ we use a milk steamer or frother machine that mixes and stirs our Turmeric very well, leaving little if any residue. They are easy to get from Myer, Harvey Norman, Officeworks, Kmart, Target, Aldi etc. for around $25-$50. 
They are perfect for being able to easily enjoy your turmeric latte everyday. 
The other thing to consider is how much Turmeric you are using per cup. 
We recommend just half a teaspoon to 200ml, however if you are using a big mug (which we use quite often!) 1 flat teaspoon is the way to go. 
This is the ideal ratio we found for taste and minimal residue whilst also featuring the benefits Turmeric offers.
