Ahh tea… how I love you. My love only grows more and more for you. Could anything be more perfect? There’s a time and occasion for you every second of the day.
Seriously, can we talk about how versatile tea is? I mean you can drink it to wake up, to relax you, it can improve your skin, it can help kick out colds, it can make you a queen if you drink some royal-TEA…. you catching my drift?
At this point you’re thinking I’m a crazy tea person who brings her own tea bags with her and asks for hot water at restaraunts…. Well, you’d be right. I do love tea.
My love for tea started when I ceased drinking pop and sugary carbonated drinks. I use to drink pop all the time and I came to a point where I wanted to better take care of myself. So, I picked up drinking tea instead of the the empty calories contained in pop.
At first I did add some sweetener to tea until I grew to appreciate the simple herbal essence of tea by itself. My go-to tea is green tea because of its antioxidant properties and light herbal taste.
Now, I do love a more suped up tea once in awhile (as pictured above). If you know me, you know I love lattes and tea lattes are the best! So let me relieve you of my rambling and give you the recipe for it.
- 1 tea ball half filled with lose Earl Grey tea OR 1 tea bag of Earl Grey tea.
- 1/2 tsp of dried lavender
- 3/4 cup of boiling water
- 1/4 cup of frothed almond milk
First, boil the water. While the water is boiling, froth the almond milk and set aside for later. Once the water is boiled, let tea steep in it for 3 minutes and remove the tea ball or bag once the time is up. Then, add the lavender to the tea. * Now you can add the frothed milk.
*When you’re adding the frothed milk to the tea, tilt the cup at a slight angle so you don’t lose too much of the frothing in the milk. It also helps to combine the two better.
Now you can go sit and sip your cup of perfection.
I love the light floral taste in this tea. The lavender really adds to this drink and I can’t imagine it could be any better than it is.
I hope you enjoy your cup of London Fog or any other tea you pour yourself.
I raise a toast to all the other avid tea drinkers out there. Have a lovely day people!
