January 31, 2012: Poor Girl’s Tea Latte

I am an avid coffee drinker, however this morning I was really craving a tea latte. The only tea lattes I have had are chai, so I’m not sure if this tastes “right,” but it’s yummy and definitely worth a try!


  • Two Earl Grey teabags (I was out of Earl Grey, but had Twinings Breakfast on hand, so that’s what I used)
  • A cup of milk (approximately)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (vanilla flavored syrup would be better)
  • Sugar or sweetener, to taste


  • Boil water and pour into a mug making it half full.
  • Place teabags in mug and allow to steep for 3-5 minutes.
  • In the meantime, add vanilla to milk and heat on the stovetop, whisking until milk is warm and foamy. (I used a steamer attachment I have on my espresso maker, but I will probably often use the stovetop method because it is less cleanup).
  • Remove teabags from mug and pour milk, adding foam on top.
