So DavidsTea posted a recipe for their tea lattes.

10 tsp tea. (I KNOW RIGHT?!)
hot water to the top of the logo in their steeper (6 or 7 oz I think)
steep.

Take 8 oz milk, shake it up real well in a microwave safe container, take the lid off and microwave for 45 seconds. Your milk should be warm, if not, shake some more and microwave it a bit more.

Put tea in mug, add milk (holding back the foam) and top with foam. Drink.

I added 1/3 tsp sugar to the milk before I shook it up.

It’s… really good. Super milky, which I guess I should expect seeing as it’s a latte, but lots of flavour. I only had 6 tsp of this tea left, so that’s what I used.

If you have a tea that goes well with milk, I’d recommend trying this. Maybe just double the amount of tea you’d usually use for 16 oz, instead of using 10 tsp though. Unless you’re REALLY trying to use something up. :)

Ooh, I’m going to have to make a tea latte with O’Connor’s Cream and some whisky. Hmm…

Yummmmmm. Now ALL I WANT is a strawberry black latte.

Wow, that’s a lot of tea! Getting a latte at DAVIDs might be more economical than making it at home.

OMGsrsly

Kittenna, it was good ! :)

Anlina, that’s exactly why I was thinking. Buying a tea latte, especially of heavier or more expensive teas, would be way cheaper than it is at home.

Wowser.. that’s a lot of tea! Hope it was scrumptious!

OMGsrsly

I haven’t used 10 tsp yet in one latte. I tweeted them though and their response was that it’s decadent. Yeah. Decadent and costly.
