Earl Grey Tea Latte + Rooibos Tea Latte

I began writing this recipe post, with a note on my research on Earl Grey Tea’s primary components, bergamot + black tea. I quickly realized that 2+ paragraphs of info was a bit much as quick intro to a recipe so I separated them.

Earl Grey Tea Latte

Ingredients:

  • 2 Bags Earl Grey Style Tea, or equivalent if using loose tea
  • 1/3 cup of milk
  • 3-4 cubes of pure cane sugar (or your choice if any)

Rooibos + Honey Tea Latte

Ingredients:

  • 2 Rooibos Tea Bags
  • 1/3 cup Milk
  • 2 tsp Honey (I’m loving Vitacost Granulated Honey)

Instructions:

  1. Heat water in electric kettle to boil, add sugar and tea bags to a tall mug (this will be about 10-14oz)
  2. Pour 6oz + boiling water into the mug and let tea steep for 2 min.
  3. Unless you have a super awesome electric milk frother – which I do not, heat 1/3-1/2 cup milk in microwave for 30-45 seconds in Pyrex measuring cup or other microwave safe container.
  4. Using an electric whisk/frother, froth the hot milk until it has doubled.
  5. Remove tea bags and stir sugar if it hasn’t finished dissolving.
  6. Now you can do this one of two ways:
    1. Spoon out the frothed milk on top and gently stir into tea – then froth remaining milk, pour into tea – while using a spoon to hold the frothy milk bubbles back – letting the liquid go first, then topping off the mug with extra fancy frothiness.
    2. OR if you don’t much care how it looks, just froth it once, hold back the bubbles with a large spoon pouring in the milk, whisk that in a bit, then top with the remaining frothy milk bubbles.

Serve + Enjoy!

Best on a cool night, sitting by a fire – ultra cozy ↓
