Oh my, I’m trying this as an iced latte for the first time and it’s wonderful. Chocolate coconut truffle with 2% milk. Swoon.

How do you make an iced latte?

Fjellrev

I basically add two Perfect Teaspoons of tea to my new gravity steeper (hence why I have recently started trying the icing method over my usual cold brewing method), add around half a cup of freshly boiled water, let steep for around four minutes (although I let this one go a little longer), then poured over a pint glass full of ice and topped off with 2% milk, maybe around 100ml worth. All in the eyeballing with the water and milk amounts, really.

I know people like to still froth the milk but I don’t care enough.

Evol Ving Ness

Thank you, Fjellrev! It’s all coming together for me now. :)

Fjellrev

Hey, me too haha. I totally get why so many people like this gravity steeper now.

Helena

Wow… when I say iced I just made it with cool water and toss in some ice. I feel so uncivilized now.

Fjellrev

Don’t! Up until getting this steeper last week, I just used to lazily cold brew everything in a large jug, and my idea of a latte was just pouring a bunch of cold milk directly from the carton into my mug.

Did you get a DTs gravity steeper? I am on my second one now. They are good products. Though I went off using it a while ago and went to my Libre clear travel mug w screen as a daily go-to.

Fjellrev

Yeah, I got the smaller one that is on sale for $9 right now. Figured why not at that price. Yeah, I still find mugs with infusers to be my first choice for steeping hot tea but this little guy has really changed the way I’ve been doing my cold tea.
