I grew up in a small town, so when I moved to a bigger city and was introduced to Starbucks, I was in love. The setback? My very tight student budget didn’t allow for many excursions to this establishment. The many joys of student life!
I experimented with making various kinds of lattes in an attempt to save money during my formative university years, but lost interest over time.
I recently purchased a milk frother, so I decided to give latte making another try. And I must say, this recipe is so easy and quick that I’ve been enjoying one everyday since. 🙂
Earl Grey Tea Latte
Adapted from Stash Tea
- 1 Earl Grey teabag or 1.5 tsp loose leaf Earl Grey tea
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- Sweetener (sugar agave, honey, etc)
- 1 tsp cinnamon, to garnish
Boil your water in a kettle. Once ready, pour your water into your cup and add the teabag or infuser if using loose leaf tea, as I did. Let the tea steep for 5-7 minutes. Once steeped, remove your tea bag or infuser.
If you want to add a sweetener, add now.
Heat your milk in a small-medium sized saucepan at low/medium heat until warm. Mine took about 6-8 minutes.
Once warm, froth the milk with your frother until foamy and bubbly.
Pour the frothed milk into your mug and sprinkle with cinnamon.
Easy as that!

My dog, Rockie, was intrigued by my latte making (mostly by the camera shutter sound when I taking photos of my latte).
Looks like he needs a haircut…
Have a great Tuesday!
