  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tsp black tea 1 bag (can do 2 for stronger latte)
  • ¾ cup milk any kind works, but plant-based isn't as sweet, so you'll likely need a dash more sugar
  • 2 tsp brown sugar or 2 tsp white sugar and drop of molasses
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch salt


  • Heat water in the microwave or in a tea kettle. Once near boiling, pour into a small container with the tea leaves (or tea bag) and allow it to steep for about 3-4 minutes.
  • While the tea is steeping, heat the milk for about 60 seconds in the microwave. Stir in the sugar, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla. You can froth this or whip it to give it a bit more body (I do this with my immersion blender).
  • Next strain the tea into the milk.
  • For more appeal, dust the top with more cinnamon. Enjoy hot!


You may want more or less sugar depending on your tastes. I usually order my drinks from Starbucks half sweet, so this is a bit closer to that flavor.
