Lately at nights I have been wanting to drink a hot cup of tea, since it is getting a little colder here in Texas. Over the weekend I decided to experiment and make a latte. Instead of a coffee latte, I made a tea latte! What?! A tea latte?!! Isn’t that gross?! <– That is what i am imagining you are saying…
Yes. A tea latte. It is delicious and sweet!
Here is what you will need for a 16 oz latte:
– 2 packets Celestial Seasonings Madagascar Vanilla Rooibos tea (or just any vanilla flavor tea you have, but this one is really delicious alone as well!)
– 16 oz of milk (I used 2% but by all means use whatever you want. For a healthier option, I would go with skim milk or almond to cut out some calories and really make this a healthy drink.)
– 2 tsp of sugar (I used 2 packets of sugar in the raw.)
So you will want to heat up the milk and the sugar in a saucepan. Make sure you don’t boil the milk because it will make a huge mess, you just want the milk to be hot. (I know this because it happened to me.) Then remove the saucepan from heat and add the tea bags. Wait about 4-6 minutes and then remove the tea bags. Finally just give it all a stir and pour that creamy latte into your favorite tea mug and enjoy!
