Secret ingredients are the best ingredients. The secret ingredient for this latte is the use of Vanilla Syrup, which makes it taste like it's from a chic café instead of your kitchen. Perfectly pairs with gingersnaps and your cutest mug or tea set.
VANILLA JASMINE GREEN TEA LATTE:
Time: 10 minutes
1 tea bag of Jasmine Green Tea (despite the Twinings in the photo, I normally use Numi)
12 oz water
1/3 cup milk
1.5 tbsp Vanilla Syrup (found in the coffee and tea aisle)
(Optional) Shot of Espresso
1.) Boil the water.
2.) While the water is boiling, froth your milk. This can be done by warming up your milk to 140-150 degrees F and then whisking back and forth, or shaking the milk in a mason jar.
3.) Once the water is hot enough, steep the tea bag for around 4-5 minutes, or your preferred amount of time. This is when you should make your espresso shot if using.
4.) Once the tea has been steeped, add in the vanilla syrup. I generally use 1.5 tbsp, but use to taste. Add in the espresso if using.
5.) Gently add the milk.
6.) Mix it all together and enjoy!
