SOUR CHERRY CHOCOLATE TEA LATTE
1 teaspoon (or 1 teabag) Sour Cherry green tea
1 cup boiling water
1 cup chocolate oat milk or other non-dairy milk
Or, to make homemade chocolate milk you will need:
1 cup plain non-dairy milk
1–1½ teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1. Brew Sour Cherry tea double strength: bring 1 cup of water to a full rolling boil, & pour over 1 teaspoon of tea. Steep 3 minutes, then strain.
2. While tea is steeping, add chocolate milk to small saucepan & bring to a simmer on medium-low heat. If you have a milk frother you can use it while warming up milk.
To make homemade chocolate milk: heat plain milk on stove top, add cocoa powder & whisk until fully mixed.
3. Combine equal parts brewed tea & warm chocolate milk in a mug. Fancy latte art optional :)
Why not get creative with garnishes too? Try cinnamon, chocolate shavings...
