Remember that Earl Grey tea latte?
I can’t stop thinking about it either. These tea lattes went from a once-a-week treat to a daily fix. Times two. I make 2 lattes some mornings. I tell myself I’ll have just one and then switch back to green tea. But, before I know it, my milk is frothing and another tea bag is perfectly steeped. Again.
I discovered the secret to making a tea latte taste like one from a coffee shop: sugar. Just a splash. I use agave nectar most of the time.
There’s a local coffee shop next to my yoga studio that makes a green tea latte just for me, even though it’s not on the menu. They leave the tea bag in the cup for serving, and I think that’s necessary for green tea since it’s so lightly flavored. An Earl Grey tea bag only needs 5 minutes of steeping to reach its richest, darkest brown. I recommend covering the cup during steeping for maximum flavor.
You’re going to need a milk frother for this recipe. Sorry about that. But, maybe lay off your Starbucks habit one day a week and you’ll save enough money to buy one?
I got my milk frother as a wedding present, and I love it. Love love it.
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 single-serving Earl Grey tea bag
- 1/2 cup 1% milk
- 1 teaspoon sugar or agave nectar
- Bring the water to a boil. Once boiling, pour it into a tea cup and add tea bag. Cover and step for 5 minutes.
- One minute before tea is done steeping, add the milk to the frother and turn it on.
- Remove the tea bag from the water and stir in the sugar. Spoon frothed milk on top and serve.
