A what now? An apple cider tea made into a latte of course!
I started with my Apple Cider Tea for the base of the latte. Steep 5 oz. of boiling water with 3-4 tsp. of the apple cider tea loose leaf blend. Yes, this is twice the amount I recommend for 8 oz. of tea but you want a very concentrated amount of tea for the flavor to stand out in the latte. Just smell the amazing scent of fall in this cup of tea!
While your tea is steeping feel free to start the next step. “Steam” some milk, or your choice of creamy goodness. It can be regular milk, almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk, or even half and half. It is your tea so as I recommend with everything, make it how YOU want it! Now I said “steam” because I don’t have a handy dandy steamer contraption, but one day I will! If you are like me then just go for a simple method of grabbing a mason jar.
I love these jars because they do all your measuring as well, no need to dirty more than necessary. Poor in about 50 ml, just under 2 oz. of milk, or your different choice.
Close the jar, tightly, and shake, shake, shake! I mean it, shake it ’til you make it.
Your milk will foam, and should double in size. I would give it 30-60 seconds. It may vary depending on the type of milk you choose. Once doubled in size from original 50 ml, slowly warm the milk up in the microwave. I warmed mine for 25 seconds, and then another 10 seconds to get my perfect temperature.
Now the easy part! Just pour your steeped and strained tea into a mug, top with the milk and foam. I topped mine with a little dash of cinnamon sugar. I think it makes it so pretty while giving it an added punch of flavor. NOW ENJOY!
