This fall/winter, the go-to drink in our house has become the Earl Grey Tea Latte. With blustering winds, silent continuous snow, and freezing temps, what better way to warm up than with a mug of this deliciousness? I must confess that it has become a daily habit with me!
Here’s what you need:
L to R: Something to warm milk in, a giant mug, vanilla syrup, loose leaf Earl Grey Tea, frother
Brew a STRONG half mug of Earl Grey Tea (which is a mild tea to begin with). I use loose leaf tea, which definitely gives it a much better flavor, but I have used tea bags before.
Warm up about half a cup of milk in the microwave (or on the stove top). I use whole milk which is what we drink. I’ve heard that less fattening milk froths better, but I don’t have a problem with the whole milk, and I love the taste.
After the milk is heated, use your frother (or a whisk) to double or triple the milk in volume.
Stir the frothed milk into the tea, and mix it well. The frothed milk will pick up the flavor of the vanilla syrup the more you mix it in. Add a dash of cinnamon to the top and you’re good to go! Of course, a white chocolate craisin oatmeal cookie is always a great accompaniment, although the tea is filling on its own. ENJOY!
Not sure what this picture has to do with an Earl Grey Tea Latte, but just looking at it makes me want to yawn, curl up under a blanket, read a good book, and well….sip a latte!
