I love tea, and lately I’ve really started enjoying English Breakfast Tea. I also really like lattes, though sometimes they’re a little too strong for me. I’m just not much of a coffee drinker. I only like the coffee or espresso drinks made with lots of sugar and milk, and even then they can sometimes be just a little too strong or bitter. So I decided to experiment with making a tea latte at home.
I decided on English Breakfast Tea since it’s currently my favorite hot tea, and I already like it with milk added to it. I like my tea pretty sweet (just in case you missed that from the name of my blog), so you may want to reduce the sugar if you like your tea a little less sweet. I think it’s delicious exactly like this:
English Breakfast Tea Latte:
1 English Tea Bag
1 cup water
1/3 cup milk
2 and 1/4 tsp sugar
Put sugar in the bottom of a large mug. Pour water and tea bag into a small sauce pan; bring to a boil over High heat. Boil for 90 seconds. Pour tea, with the bag, into the mug (over the sugar), cover and allow to steep for 1 - 4 minutes, depending on how strong you like your tea (I steep mine for four minutes). Meanwhile, pour milk in sauce pan over Medium heat; whisk the milk just until it begins to boil. Remove tea bag from mug and pour in milk. Stir well.
