Green Mint Tea and Honey Latte

green-tea-latte

Lately I have been loving my little tea latte drinks I have been coming up with and today I thought I would try a green tea version. From there I thought the mint would be a great add in as well as some acacia honey. I was not sure how it would turn out since green tea is so light compared to other teas, but it was really great and a new favorite for sure. I plan to buy some matcha tea and make some lattes that way as well. To get the foam for my lattes I just use a hand frother wand and it works really well.

1 cup boiling water
1-1/2 teaspoon green tea (or two teabags)
Sprig of fresh mint
1/4 cup warmed milk
1 heaping teaspoon acacia honey

1. In a mug, add water and green tea. Allow to sit for 5 minutes, then strain. In a small pot (I use my Arabic coffee pot) add the milk and warm on low for a few minutes. Add honey in green tea and mix.

2. Carefully foam the milk and pour into tea. Srinkle extra tea on top.

Yields: 1 cup

  • This sounds so good. I bought a giant box of green tea from Costco and I love it, but the box is so big, and I’m the only one who drinks it, that I was starting to get tired of it. I’ll definitely have to try this next time I have a cup of tea.

    • I have never been a big fan of green tea unless it has mint in it, but this recipe takes it to a new level so I think you will enjoy it. You know you can also cook a lot with green tea.

  • Oh wow – was just flipping through all your recipes (everything looks delicious) but this one especially caught my eye. So light and delicate! I might try this with almond milk.
