As promised, I am trying this today as a latte. I steamed a little bit of milk and used a little less water to make up for the additional liquid. The result: really nice. REALLY nice. So rich and creamy.
It’s really hard to describe this … it’s like black tea, but, not just stronger, but, thicker. Imagine black tea with the thick consistency of a smooth hot chocolate. It’s incredibly smooth and so very delicious. The black tea is robust and flavorful, slightly sweet with notes of deep cocoa. The latte just sends this over the top. I enjoy it straight without the milk, but with the milk, it becomes an amazingly comforting drink that is also quite stimulating.
