daily bliss: tea latte
My friend H. makes Earl Grey Lattes at home, and so I've giving it a try. I steep half a mug of tea quite strong, and pour in steaming, frothy milk, laced with raw sugar. I've been wanting to try a homemade Chai Latte for some time, and have been slowly building up my spice collection. I also needed a flavorful black tea to start. I bought an organic breakfast blend by Stash, and heated up some milk with a cinnamon stick, a few green cardamom pods, allspice berries, and a touch of vanilla extract. I drizzled in some maple syrup from my friends' farm and whisked away. Delicious! Spicy, satisfying, and special. A perfect Friday afternoon treat.
