One cold night in Pentagon City (a suburb of D.C.), David and I stopped in at a nearby Starbucks. I wanted to try something different (it was after Christmas so no Peppermint Mochas!) so I ordered an Earl Grey Tea Latte. I was a little skeptical but I loved it. Ever since, that has been my #2 go-to drink at Starbucks (behind either a hot or iced cafe mocha, depending on the temperate outside).
Needless to say, paying more than $2 for tea is not fun (why is everything there so overpriced?). One day, I was complaining to David about my love for tea lattes and, being the good husband that he is :), he figured out how to make even better ones!
We both love earl grey tea, but you could use any kind of tea. We bought the fancy container of tea pictured above at Starbucks (yeah, I know…), but the stuff you can get at the grocery store is just as good.
We like to enjoy our tea in our bride + groom mugs!
Ingredients (makes 1 cup):
- 1 cup water
- 1 tea bag of earl grey tea (or substitute your preferred tea)
- 2 tablespoons milk (we use skim)
- 1 spoonful honey (we also could use vanilla syrup)
