Coffee and tea–rivals since 1773 (when drinking tea was considered unpatriotic in America after the Boston Tea Party), but that’s all behind us now, although, there are people who fancy one over the other for personal preference.
I am more of a coffee drinker, but I usually like to drink tea at night because it feels more cozy and easy on my stomach. This then brings me to another latte recipe—london fog–an earl gray tea latte. Here’s my recipe:
Bigelow earl gray tea bag
1/2 cup hot water
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp honey (or to taste)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1. Steep your tea with 1/2 cup of hot water
2. While tea is steeping, froth milk:
Using Nespresso Aeroccino
Using frothing wisk: heat milk, honey, and vanilla in saucepan but not to boil. Use wisk until milk foths.
Using french press: Heat milk, vanilla extract, honey in microwave and pour warm milk in french press. Pump up and down with plunger until it froths.
3. Pour frothed milk in a stainless steel creamer pitcher or something you can easily pour with (if you used the French press, you can just pour from there, but just remove the lid). I like to use a SS creamer pitcher because it pours the froth better).
4. Express tea bag in the cup with a spoon to make sure you have a good concentrate of tea in the water. Throw tea bag and pour frothed milk slowly.
5. Garnish with cinnamon sugar
Cozy up and enjoy!
