Little Wildling Co makes 100% organic herbal teas + powders a little differently, they’re for the rule breakers, the inspired, the dreamers, the wild ones.
Created by Lee Sutherland, the BCorp certified tea range which ticks the boxes in both flavour + medicinal purposes. Something that is a lifestyle extension which speaks to a range of people – from health conscious yogis to creative types that sometimes need a tongue in cheek message, to help remind them to slow down with a cup of tea, with a bit of health in every sip.
Whether you want loose leaf tea to slow the process down or plastic free, home compostable tea bags the range includes something for everyone – to energise you (naturally and caffeine free) with Alive + Energise or Minty Matcha (caffeine) pre workout and then to bring the chill post workout with anti-inflammatory, calming blend Hibernate + Chill after or I Am Golden (turmeric latte).
I AM GOLDEN – TURMERIC LATTE
Long before Turmeric lattes were trendy, this incredible vibrant yellow coloured cousin of ginger, was used in traditional Chinese and Ayurveda medicine to treat a wide variety of digestive, metabolic and inflammatory disorders.
Studies have shown Turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and immunomodulatory, wound healing, and antimicrobial activities. It was once believed that these activities were due to the isolated curcumin however, research beyond the early 2000’s identified numerous chemical entities and therefore deemed more viable therapeutically as a whole extract.
Basically, it should be stashed in every pantry and medicine cabinet too, with all its amazing healing properties both in treatment and preventative medicine it’s no wonder it has been such an important herb over the centuries.
So sip throughout the day my friend, and let it support your digestion, aching body and delight your taste buds!
TUMERIC LATTE RECIPE
1/2 a teaspoon of I AM GOLDEN powder
Add 3/4 hot water to mix, top with warmed milk of choice and sweetener of your choice
Or if you have a milk foamer add milk of choice and turn on to heat, add 1/2 a teaspoon of I AM GOLDEN powder and a little bit of your chosen sweetener at the end.

With all the best bits from matcha (we’re talking up to 137 x more antioxidants than green tea), but minus the bitterness thanks to the added not-so-secret ingredient: Peppermint powder!
This unique blend can be enjoyed during the day to help improve mental clarity (bring on those game changing ideas!) or to help those 3pm slumps. Just add 1/2 a teaspoon of powder to hot water (75 degrees is ideal), mix, top up with milk of choice, and add a spoon of organic honey to make yourself a Minty Matcha Latte. Or why not go extra and add it to your morning smoothie for a nurturing energy boost:
