A night time nourishing moon milk. Lunar Latte is a blissful blend of vibrant purple carrot, traditional Chinese adaptogens and organic floral botanicals to make a Moon Milk potion to help relax before bed. Smooth vanilla tones combined with caramel notes of mesquite and a subtle hint of pink Himalayan crystal salt compliment the delicate bouquet to deliver a delicious pre-bedtime indulgence and healthy dessert drink alternative.
What’s so dreamy about it?
Chamomile, Lavender and Passionflower taste like a floral laced dream but also have a long history of use by herbalists for their naturally calming perfume. We have combined these delicate botanicals with Ayurvedic Ashwagandha and ancient Chinese adaptogenic herbs He Shou Wu and Reishi mushroom, making Lunar Latte the perfect way to unwind before bed.
Lunar Latte is coloured like a soft lavender field due to the natural purple pigment from the anthocyanins (antioxidants) found in purple carrot. Lunar Latte doesn’t contain any added sugar or sweetener, so say goodbye to the restlessness from sugar highs right before bed.

Why is there herby floaters in my cup?
Firstly, if you are finding that your Lunar Latte has some remnants of ground herb floating in it - CONGRATS! This means you have got some of the freshest organic herbs around in your night-time indulgence! Your Lunar Latte is definitely more than suitable to consume. Those naturally occurring “stringy bits” are actually just mucilage (or fibre) from freshly ground organic Chamomile herb (no fake extracts here). Upon heating, mucilage is naturally released from the herb and may coagulate forming little floaters as the drink cools down again. One way we suggest avoiding this is to only warm your milk, don’t over heat it, and drink it as soon as it is a suitable temperature for you. This mucilage will most likely sit on the bottom of the cup, so once mixed in, you might also wish to avoid excessive stirring. Otherwise you can also avoid this by frothing your milk. That said, as Chamomile is a natural herb, it will also vary in the amount of mucilage from batch to batch, so one Lunar Latte may contain more mucilage than another.
Will I feel drowsy the next day after drinking Lunar Latte?
Absolutely not. Lunar Latte is in no way comparable to a strong pharmaceutical that may cause you to feel drowsy the next day. Lunar Latte is only a supportive product, containing Chamomile as the only active herb which with its calming aroma may assist in falling asleep, but it is not strong enough to cause excessive drowsiness.
Can Lunar Latte cure my insomnia?
Nutra Organics is currently a food company that creates products solely for the purpose of nourishing our bodies with organic, high quality healthfoods. Therefore we do not promote any of our products to have a specific therapeutic effect or benefit, including Lunar Latte. Lunar Latte is not suitable for any therapeutic purpose, including but not limited to the treatment of any ailment such as insomnia. For further information regarding this or any concerns you may have regarding Lunar Latte and a specific health condition we recommend consulting your primary physician.
Is Lunar Latte Suitable for pregnancy, breastfeeding, and for my children to consume?
Yes, Lunar Latte is suitable for all members of the family. With mild chamomile as the only active ingredient, all other naturopathic herbs included in the blend are present only in a supportive amount, roughly 100 x less than the amount required to produce any effect. Further, as we choose to only use whole herbs (no concentrated extracts) there is no concern for any member of the family to consume Lunar Latte.
Are the adaptogentic and hypnotic herbs herbal extracts or whole herbs?
Here at Nutra Organics, it is of the utmost importance to us that all members of the family can enjoy majority of our products and that where possible, we use the most “whole” form of the ingredient available. Therefore we do not utilise herbal extracts in any of our products. This means not only are our products more wholesome, they are suitable for all members of the family to consume.
What makes Lunar Latte purple?
Lunar Latte contains refractance window dried New Zealand purple carrot. This means that our purple carrot retains the highest amount of anthocyanins (the purple pigments) possible in a dried product and make our Lunar Latte a dazzling purple colour. However, as carrots are a natural product, of course, as with any other fruit or vegetable, there are seasonal variances which may result with more or less purple at times. The exact colour of the latte will also vary slightly depending on the type of milk used. ie. greyish almond milk might make your latte darker than when made with white full cream milk. However rest assured that your latte will taste beautiful no matter how purple the purple is.
Is Lunar Latte Vegan?
Yes, Lunar Latte is vegan when prepared in a plant based milk.
What does Lunar Latte taste like?
Lunar Latte is very different to our other superfood latte’s in terms of flavour as it is not chai based. Lunar Latte tastes like a vanilla latte dream with mild floral and caramel undertones from the honey-like aromatics of chamomile and mesquite.
Are there any allegy or dietary concerns with the consumption of Lunar Latte?
If you suffer an allergy to flowers, particularly of the Asteraceae family or carrots, we recommend steering clear of Lunar Latte. Otherwise it is FODMAP friendly, vegan, and gluten-free. It is manufactured in a facility that also processes products containing fish, shellfish, eggs, soy, tree nuts, lupin and sesame.
Love, love, love this product! You only need a little bit and its full of flavour. I have it with hot/warm coconut milk. Just delicious.
This is my comfort tea before bed, it's delicious and makes me feel relaxed!
I really enjoy this amazing night time drink. My daughter introduced me and I will be eternally grateful
I was looking for something delicious and calming in place of turmeric lattes because I needed a change. This has been a great choice. It's really delicious, such a beautiful colour and really does help me unwind. As I was growing accustomed to the taste I put some stevia and vanilla in it. Even my husband requests it now!
I love the lunar latte. It has no added sugar but tastes naturally sweet. I love the floral taste of it. I always crave something sweet after dinner, but drinking this with unsweetened coconut milk is almost like (a healthy) dessert itself. Can't say that it really helped my sleeping though...
