Brew your own tea latte
By Hao Lu
Since summer is about to end, hot tea latte is coming back to people’s life. Instead of buying those pricy green tea lattes from Starbucks, how about learning to brew your own delicious and healthy lattes for the winter?
The process of brewing tea latte is actually much simpler than you would imagine. Similar to a latte made with espresso, the tea latte is made with milk and tea — almost any kind of teas can be made into a tea latte, just choose your favorite or what you have at home!
Here is a simple recipe for a green tea latte.
Ingredients (for a single serving)
2 tablespoons of loose leaf tea
1 tablespoon of sugar, honey or maple syrup
A tea infuser or a tea bag
1/2 cup of milk (choose from soy milk, whole, 2 percent or nonfat)
1. Put your tea in a tea infuser/tea bag, then steep it in 1/2 cup boiling water
2. Wait for five minutes, then remove the infuser
3. While the tea is brewing, heat a 1/2 cup of milk until steaming
4. Put your heated milk and the tea brew into your mug, then add sugar, honey or maple syrup
