Tea La La Latte Recipe

How to make the perfect tea latte:

For a tea latte base, add 2 rounded tsp of loose leaf tea to your tea infuser. Steep the tea in 1/2 cup of boiling water (212 degrees Fahrenheit) for 4 – 5 minutes. You can make a tea latte with most teas. I recommend a black tea like Earl Grey.

– Ingredients –

  • 2 tsp loose leaf tea
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice
  • 1/2 tbsp honey or sugar to taste

– Instructions –

  • Make a tea concentrate: Read the tea’s steeping instructions to learn what’s the brewing temperature and time. For the self-care kit – Add 2 tsp loose leaf tea to tea infuser and place in a cup. Heat water to boiling temperature. Add 1/2 cup hot water over the tea leaves and let it steep for 4-5 minutes. Remove tea infuser from the cup.
  • Add honey or any sweetner
  • Froth 1/2 cup of milk with a frother and pour it over the tea concentrate.
  • Sit back and and enjoy your tea la latte!

Switch it up with an Iced Latte

  • Brew the tea concentrate and set aside until it cools down
  • Sweeten with honey or your sweetener of choice (better to sweeten tea while it is warm)
  • Pour the tea over a glass of ice
  • Top it off with cold milk of choice (no need to froth)
1: A hot drink made by infusing dried crushed leaves of the tea plant in boiling water. 
2. A hug in a mug 🙂

Horseback Riding For Black Women

Face your fears and have some fun “Woah, this is high,” That’s what I thought and said out loud when I walked up the plastic steps and tentatively sat in the saddle. It’s been over 15 years since I last rode a horse. At that time I was young, fearless, and ready for any adventure…
