As much as I love my coffee, I don’t know just how I’ve lasted this far without discovering this particular concoction. I’ve never been a huge fan of Earl Grey tea; call me crazy, but it’s always tasted like stale potpourri. However, something about the sweet and creamy vanilla with an almost floral tint is growing on me.
I found an amazing loose leaf earl grey creme tea to use; I just throw it in a mug to brew, and strain out the tea leaves later.
Brew it hearty, brew it strong.
Prep a mug with a heaping teaspoon of brown sugar…
Warm the milk on the stove or microwave and add a couple drops of vanilla extract.
Strain the tea into your favorite mug…
Then add the warm milk. Divine.

Brew tea extra strong with boiling water and steep for at least 3 minutes. Meanwhile, heat milk and vanilla in a small saucepan over low heat until steaming but not scalded.
