Ingredients

  • 250 ml boiling hot water
  • 1 bag black tea I used english breakfast tea
  • 2 pieces star anise
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom
  • 200 ml plant milk such as soya, almond, coconut milk - chilled
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp agave syrup or other sweetener
  • ice cubes

Instructions

  • Boil hot water and add 1 teabag of black tea.
  • Add all the spices to your tea (star anise, cinnamon and cardamom).
  • Prepare your milk mixture by mixing chilled plant milk, vanilla extract and sweetener. Mix well with a fork or a spoon and let cool.
  • Fill two glasses with ice cubes.
  • Once cooled down, strain your tea and spices, then pour the tea over your ice cubes.
  • Finally, pour your milk mixture on top. Stir before serving.

Notes

  • If you don’t strain the spices, your latte will become powdery as cinnamon and cardamom don’t dissolve.
  • Make sure you use plenty of ice cubes for each serving. I tend to go for about 7 ice cubes per serving.
  • If you can, use a barista type of plant milk - they are often slightly thicker, making your latte creamier.
