This has been a drab, gray and drizzly day. It started raining yesterday afternoon and hasn’t let up since. It was the perfect day for staying in and knitting. I have to cook up a blog post on the knitting projects I have been doing, but until then here is one about the delicious drink I whipped up this afternoon. I wanted a bit of a treat, and decided to try to re-create the tea latte I have had a couple of times from Starbucks.
Earl Grey Tea Latte
1 cup boiling water
2 Earl Grey tea bags
1-2 tablespoons sugar
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Boil the water, and pour over the two teabags. I did this in a 4-cup pyrex measuring cup. Let steep for at least 5 minutes, or while you are heating up the milk.
Pour the milk into a saucepan and heat until it foams up. Remove from heat. Add vanilla to milk.
Remove teabags from water, pressing to get all the tasty tea goodness out. Add the sugar. I used 2 tablespoons, which was yummy but super sweet.
Add milk to the tea and stir, then divide into two cups. Enjoy with your sweetheart.
