Join me for a cup of tea?
This time of year I love to drink warm beverages, coffee/tea/hot cocoa/whatever...
I found this pumpkin spice chai from Townshends Tea here in Portland. Well, chai is amazing with steamed and frothed milk. I don't have a steamer, but I'm about to give ya some good news... you don't need one!
This Westsoy vanilla unsweetened soy milk is my favorite for coffee/tea drinks. Cow milk and almond milk also froth very well, but rice milk not so much. I like more tea than milk in mine, so I figure about 3/4:1/4 tea to milk. I pour the milk into a pot and heat it up on medium. It doesn't take long and you'll want to stand there the whole time.
The little device photographed below I believe is called an emulsion blender.
Pour your milk in a pot, heat it up on medium, and use a little frother/emulsion blender/whisk to keep the milk moving until you see steam. Once it is finished, it's frothy and beautiful!Mix it into your tea/chai and add your favorite sweetener!!!
Happy Frothing ;)
What's your favorite tea/latte?
