Iced English Tea Latte.
Just saying those four words makes you feel refreshed already, doesn’t it? Especially when it’s hot outside and all you want is a nice cold drink?
You might remember my Yummy Cuppa English Tea Latte recipe. (If not, you need to look that up and bookmark it for when the weather gets cold and you want a nice comforting hot drink!) Well, this iced tea latte is essentially the same thing but on ice! Brilliant, right??
This cool refreshing beverage is literally only 2 ingredients…TWO.
And from those two ingredients, you get a creamy, milky tea latte that not only cools you down, but also gives you a bit of a pick-me-up!
Despite the long brew time, this drink is not bitter in the least, probably because the tea bags have been steeped in milk instead of water. Another advantage to not using just plain’ ol’ water!
I also don’t use any sweetener in this iced tea latte, but if you prefer to add some to yours, that’s still only 3 ingredients!
People often don’t think twice about plopping down a few dollars for an iced English tea latte. But seriously? Those few dollars can really add up after a while! This is so ridiculously easy to make and even easier on the pocketbook.
Summer is here! What are you waiting for?
Iced English Tea Latte
- 1 1/2 cups whole milk
- 2 English tea bags
- Sweetener of choice (optional)
- Place the two tea bags in a measuring cup large enough to contain the milk.
- In a small saucepan, heat the milk over low, stirring frequently. Remove from heat when you see steam; do not allow the milk to boil.
- Pour the hot milk over the tea bags in the measuring cup and let steep for 5-7 minutes.
- Gently press the liquid out of the tea bags and remove from the milk.
- If adding sweetener to your tea, add it at this point and stir to dissolve.
- Let the tea milk cool for about 10 minutes, and then place in the fridge to chill.
- When ready to serve, stir tea mixture before pouring over ice cubes in your glass.
- Try this with non-dairy milk, such as almond or soy.
- I do not add sweetener to my tea as I find the milk makes it sweet enough. However, if you want to add sweetener, add after you remove the tea bags, while the milk is still hot and stir well to dissolve.
