DID YOU KNOW
Earl Grey tea derives its citrusy flavor from the bergamot orange, a small, pear-shaped citrus fruit with remarkably fragrant skin.
1 earl grey tea bag
¾ cup boiling water
¾ cup milk
½ to 1 tablespoon vanilla syrup, depending on desired sweetness*
sprinkle of cinnamon
Add the tea bag to a mug and pour in the boiling water. Let steep for about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the tea bag. Meanwhile, add the milk to a small saucepan set over medium heat. Heat until just steaming (do not let the milk boil). Alternatively, you can heat the milk in the microwave. Add the milk to the mug and stir in the vanilla syrup. Top with a sprinkle of cinnamon and enjoy.
If desired, you can whisk the steamed milk until very frothy before pouring it into the mug (or use a milk frother). I just prefer these lattes without the foam.
*If you do not have vanilla syrup, you can substitute a teaspoon or so of regular granulated sugar and a splash of vanilla extract. Adjust the quantities to your own taste.
