Lify latte menu
Turmeric Latte based on ENERGY – a black tea containing turmeric designed to improve your overall energy. If you are used to taking coffee to keep you going, ENERGY is a good and healthier alternative. Here’s what Michelle Lau, Founder & Principal Dietitian of Nutrilicious has to say about this power blend, especially during the current virus outbreak:
ENERGY is a great option if you are looking for an all-natural, low-calorie, non-sweetened beverage for an energy and immune boost with less caffeine than coffee and energy drinks. It has a strong, unique flavor and contains plenty of antioxidants and nutrients to keep your body in check against the flu and other infectious diseases.
ENERGY contains Turmeric
Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, gets most of the credit for the spice’s anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, antioxidising, and immune-boosting properties. Adding to its impressive list of nutritional benefits, turmeric is a good source of B vitamins, zinc and iron, all of which are crucial for a healthy immune system. Turmeric is also classified as an adaptogen as it helps the body adapt to stressors like environmental toxins, inflammatory foods, and lack of sleep.
ENERGY contains Apple Pomace
Apple pomace is characterised by a great source of immune-support compounds like dietary fibre, phytochemicals, and other nutrients, all of which can reduce chronic disease risk and boost immunity. It also contains antioxidants like vitamins E and C, which can strengthen the body's natural defenses.

Rooibos Latte based on SLEEP – Rooibos, meaning “red bush” is a South African shrub. Both rooibos and chamomile are highly antioxidant and have a calming effect on the nerves. This blend is caffeine-free so it’s literally “never too late for (this) latte”!
Osmanthus Oolong Latte based on FLOW - Our customers love the refined floral taste of osmanthus in this blend, which also helps remove toxins from the body and ease anxiety. This East-meets-West latte has a green oolong tea base which aids digestion and helps keep skin cells healthy.
American Ginseng Tieguanyin Latte based on BOOST – Another latte created from our Oriental Functional Series, with American ginseng to help boost the immune system and brain function, as well as giving it a unique earthy undertone.
