Some might call me a latte lover, I will be the first to admit I love them in all shapes and sizes. Hot Latte. Cold Latte. Matcha Latte. Caffeine Free Latte. Caffeine on Caffeine Latte. You name it and I’ll drink it more than likely.

At first I didn’t experiment at all I just drank the tea hot and plain, then someone turned me onto sweeteners to change the flavors of the teas after that it was a whole new game and I was in it to win it!

I have experimented with flavors with temperature and of course with milk! You’ll even find sometimes I add in our hot chocolates into the teas to up the delicious factor but like a million.

Below you will find the basic recipe I use for all of my latte’s, what I do after I master the basics is the extra fancy things like adding a shot of Bailey’s or Jameson, or add hot chocolate or matcha to the steeped tea. The sky is the limit with your latte’s and I cannot wait to hear how you enjoy your next one.

Servings 1


  • 1 Personal Press
  • 1 Party Milk Frother


  • 1 – 1 1/2 tsp Tea
  • 8oz Water
  • 1/4 c milk


Brew The Tea

  • Heat your water in your tea kettle or otherwise
  • Add 1-1 1/2 perfect cup spoons of your chosen tea to the press for one single (8oz) cup
  • Pour your hot water over the leaves replace the press lid, but do not depress it just yet.
  • Set the timer for the type of tea you have in your press.
  • Press the 'plunger' all the way down once the timer has gone off, this will stop the brewing of the leaves.
  • Pour into a cup making sure to leave some room for some magic that we will add next.
  • Sweeten your tea to your liking, may I suggest a touch of honey, maple syrup or cane sugar?

Moving onto your Froth now:

  • Warm some milk on the stovetop. It does not need to be boiling just warmed through.
  • Using your Party Frother place your warmed milk inside.
  • Pump the handle up and down at a fast pace for 30sec to 1min. You will feel the pull of the milk as it begins to thicken, do not stop keep going.
  • After you have successful frothed your milk to a nice thick liking let it sit for a minute.
  • Pour your frothed milk atop your tea and give it a gentle stir.
  • Top with cinnamon, cocoa or some other topping of your wishes depending on the type of tea you used.
