Today I’ll conclude my series of reviews of Plum Deluxe Loose Leaf Teas with a very special tea that anyone and everyone will love: Vanilla Latte Tea.
When I first tried this particular tea, I thought, “… the Coffeehouse crowd will flip their cups over this one.” I’d know, after all, since I’m a charter member of the Coffeehouse crowd.
While you could certainly enjoy a beautiful cup of tea simply by brewing the Vanilla Latte Tea without creamer or steamed milk, the flavor really comes alive when you make it as you would a London Fog or Chai Tea Latte. A London Fog is simply a Chai Tea Latte where Earl Grey Tea steps in for Chai Tea. If you’ve never tried it… well… DO.
I have tried (and loved to the point of distraction) the Vanilla Latte Tea….
- … all by itself. It’s very flavorful and delicious without any co-stars. If you’re trying to pull away from sugar, this is a great tea for you, as it really doesn’t need any sweetener. The vanilla flavor more than satisfies your taste buds.
- … with a little steamed milk. It’s similar to a Vanilla Latte with coffee but you have the distinct flavor of tea in place of coffee. It’s fantastic.
- …. as the tea of choice for a “Royal Milk Tea.” Follow the link (it’ll open in a new window) for the simple instructions. It’s as easy as boiling water, adding tea leaves, adding milk, then straining the whole shebang through a wire strainer and into a mug or cup. This tea is IDEAL for this process and tastes like something you’d have paid impressive $$$$$ for in a coffeehouse.
