Earl Grey Tea Latte

Earl Grey is my favorite tea. Most of the time I enjoy it black with no sugar. But every once in a while it’s nice to have something that’s warm & creamy to drink. Since I’m not a coffee drinker, I’m always on the lookout for warm drinks to enjoy for a morning pick-me-up or for comfort on a cold winter day. This drink is not a true latte, but it’s my quick and easy version and that’s good enough for me! Now just to clarify, the picture above is not a picture of this recipe! I think I was probably drinking my regular Earl Grey that day. 

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups steeped Earl Grey tea
  • 1/2 cup evaported milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

  • In a small sauce pan, bring water to boil. Add tea bag. Turn off heat.
  • Place a spoon or other object over tea bag to force as much flavor as possible from the tea bag.
