Because I am so excited that this actually worked! (frothing milk at home)

I was craving a latte and rather than waste money, and because I have half and half at home… and, well a lot of tea…

I checked out some videos on youtube and I am in love with my (seriously hated) microwave again!

These two were my favourite videos! Happy frothing!

Wow, that looked so easy!

Thanks for sharing that with us!

If you are willing to tell me, I would be interested in hearing how to make a ‘tea latte.’ Do you know which teas work the best: I would guess a black, or a shou pu-erh, or maybe a Maté?

I just tried it with the pumpkin chai from DAVIDs, but I would assume you can do it with any tea? I am gonna try green rooibos next. My poor sinuses need some warm drinks today.

It would make sense to do it with a chai. Let us know how it goes with the green rooibos. I hope it helps your sinuses!

I never use milk in my tea but I must try this. It just looks like so much fun. I wish I hadn’t given away my pumpkin spice tea.

I was really excited to try this, but unfortunately I didn’t work for me :( I suspect it has something to do with the fact that I use soy milk…. Let me know if anyone else has luck doing it with soymilk!

I wonder if soy milk requires that little frother tool? there is a video on youtube showing that almond milk froths..?

The milk made the Rooibos even sweeter…

Yes I loooove the sweetness of hot/frothed milk!

I have a little “frother” at home – and the best way to froth is with just plain cow-milk. Soy/Almond/Rice milk etc does not have the same compounds that will “froth” it per se, but that doesn’t mean it’s not tasty all warmed up for your tea.

I make pretty much every kind of tea into a latte. Rooibos and honeybush make a nice sweet before-bed latte :) And any tea with a strong flavour works best IMO!

Here’s the kind of frother I have, I think mine was 5 bucks though (they’re cheap, just not this one!):
