How to Make a Iced Loose Leaf Tea Latte:
Here I am going to show you the few simple steps it take to make a delicious loose leaf tea latte in five minutes or less.
Brew your tea. For our Latte Blend of teas this requires one teaspoon of loose leaf tea and a little over one half a cup of hot water. The water should be around 180 degrees or just under boiling. Let this brew for 3 minutes. This can be done in a tea pot, with a tea ball or strainer, or with a french press. Ideally this should be done ahead of time. Chill your tea in the fridge.
Blend. Take your chilled brewed tea and add it to a blender, and add one half a cup of cold milk. Blend for 20 seconds on medium speed. Other options are to use a milk frother. This would be the step to add sweetener if you desire.*
Pour and Enjoy. Pour into a cup or glass containing ice and enjoy.
For more then one serving simply double or triple the quantities to whatever number of servings you need. For a milder or stronger flavor of tea, you may adjust the ratio of milk to tea accordingly. So for a stronger tea flavor you can add 3/4 tea and only 1/4 milk instead of half and half.
*If you prefer white foamed lattes, simply froth the milk separately and pour over your brewed tea. Lattes containing genmaicha must be done this way otherwise the milk will loose its foam very quickly.
