FAQ's

Can I use a different kind of milk?

Yes! You can use any kind of milk you like. I’ve made this with coconut milk as well, but almond and oat milk would also work.

Can I use a different tea?

Absolutely! This would be delicious with Earl Grey or Green Tea too!

Can I make more than one?

Yes, if you want to make two or three drinks, just double or triple the recipe. You can make them all together in one pot and then just pour over each tea bag in each individual mug.

Notes

Vegan – Replace the milk with coconut, almond, or oat milk.
High Altitude — Follow the recipe as noted.
I used cinnamon sticks and star anise in the photos. This was just for show, while it may add a tiny bit of flavor, it's not necessary and when I make this just to drink, I leave these off! But, if you're serving at a party, it's a nice touch.
