As the weather turns cold, we want a warm beverage in our hands all day. Tea steamers add some creamy and flavorful variety to our mugs. Of course, we love the classic London Fog and Chai Tea Latte. And when it’s time to wind down (read: we’ve had too much caffeine), a Chamomile Steamer is just what the doctor (read: our coworkers) ordered.
Dreamy Tea Steamers
Ingredients & Supplies (Makes 2)
1 tbsp loose tea of your choice (Earl Grey for a London Fog, Chai for a Chai Latte, Chamomile for a decaf - anything you like!)
1 cup of filtered water
1 cup of your favorite dairy or non-dairy milk
Honey, sugar, or our spiced vanilla bean sugar to taste
Optional: try adding a little vanilla extract or one of our CoffeeSock spice packs
Instructions (Makes 2)
Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan and place the loose tea in your CoffeeSock tea sock (yes, you can substitute tea bags. To get a nice strong brew, you may want 3 bags).
Pour the boiling water over the tea to steep and add the honey or sugar and milk to the warm pot. Heat slowly to a simmer. Don’t go to fast or too hot to avoid scorching the milk!
Add vanilla or experiment with spices.
Once your tea has steeped for about 5 minutes, divide into two mugs and top with the warm, sweet milk.
