4 Tea Latte Recipes You Need to Try this Fall

The milky richness of a tea latte is a comforting treat for fall.

The classic Earl Grey-based London Fog tea latte comes to mind, and also the seasonal Pumpkin Spice lattes. Love a chai tea latte? There are also matcha green tea lattes of course, but you can also make delicious yerba mate lattes, rooibos lattes, and black tea lattes.

The seasonal shift always brings different cravings. One of the best things about DIY is you can customize any way you like. A tea latte will be foamy and fragrant, filled with any flavor you choose.

Tea lattes are warm and comforting. By definition, lattes include milk. Use your favorite milk; nutmilks are a popular alternative to dairy. Choose your own sweetener; raw sugar, honey, agave. You can also use syrups — caramel, vanilla, berry — to accent the flavor of your tea latte.

Our stainless steel tea basket makes all of these tea lattes simple to make. Try these smooth, warming tea latte recipes…

Pumpkin Spice Tea Latte

This simple recipe can work for any tea or tisane:

2 tablespoon of Pumpkin Spice Chai
¼ cup hot water to steep
¾ cup milk

While the tea is steeping, simmer the milk. Use a milk frother for about 15 seconds, until the milk doubles in size and is super foamy. Decant the tea into a mug, pour in the frothy milk and stir. If you don’t have a frother, you can also use a whisk.

Matcha Mint Green Tea Latte

Organic Matcha Mint Green Tea Latte

1 tablespoon Organic Matcha
1 cup of your favorite milk, heated to a simmer
4 large mint leaves, reserve one for garnish
Frothed milk, for topping

Add matcha to the heated milk and stir. Place mint leaves in your latte cup. Use the back of a spoon to crush the mint leaves a bit to release the flavor. Pour the heated matcha and milk over the mint leaves and stir. Remove the mint leaves and top with frothed milk. Garnish with extra mint leaf.

Caramel Cream Yerba Mate Latte

2 tablespoons Caramel Cream Yerba Mate
1 cup water
3 tablespoons of your favorite milk

Simmer water and milk. Add Caramel Cream Yerba Mate and steep for 5-6 minutes. Strain into a mug and add sweetener to taste. Use a frother or a small whisk to give it some air to create that frothy texture.

London Fog Tea Latte

2 tablespoons Premium Earl Grey

¾ cup boiling water

¼ cup hot milk

Optional: sweetener of your choice or vanilla syrup

Steep tea for 5 minutes. While the tea is steeping, heat the milk in a pan until steaming. Add a teaspoon of vanilla syrup and/or sweeten the tea with sugar or honey. Use a milk frother for about 15 seconds, until the milk doubles in size and is super foamy. Pour the frothy milk over the hot tea and stir.

Here are a few more perfect-for-the-season teas to try in your tea lattes…

Nutty Teas – Plus Salted Coconut Bulletproof Tea and Hazelnut Tea Cookies Recipe

There is something about nutty teas and the change of seasons. The honeyed aromas of our nutty teas make you want to curl up and read a good book this fall.

Cozy in with your favorite nutty herbal tea. Or, use the robust caffeine levels of our black nutty teas to bring focus and clarity to your back-to-school studies or the next tasks on your to-do list. These nutty teas are complex, delicious and absolutely full of flavor.

Our nutty teas are aromatic. Slightly roasty and subdued mellow notes shine in each of them. The blends are well-rounded and complex, so they stand alone, but also go well with cream and sugar. Or, with Roasted Almond Black Tea add a splash of sweet almond liquor (Amaretto) for a warm, decadent evening treat.

We love nuts and they add such a great flavor profile to tea. The deep, hearty taste of the nut adds layers of complexity to a variety of teas and tisanes.

Hazelnuts are often associated with decadent desserts and chocolates. Thanks to Nutella, most of us love hazelnuts.

Walnuts originated in Persia and have been consumed for centuries. They were once only served to royalty. Now, we have hearty, nutty teas to enjoy.

Coconuts are classified as a fibrous one-seeded drupe. When loosely defined, the coconut is considered a fruit, a nut, AND a seed.

Almonds are velvety and classic, reminiscent of old-world pastries.

 

We’re nuts about these nutty teas…

Green Walnut Green Tea

Green Walnut Green Tea

This playful organic green tea blend combines the rich tastes of nuts and maple with tropical fruit for a flavor that is new, yet familiar, and tropical yet traditional.  Our organic green tea gets its oomph from the addition of sweet maple brittle, tangy pineapple bits, tropical coconut and rich almonds and walnuts. The result is a balanced and totally delicious blend you’re sure to love.

2 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 sticks softened butter

1 cup powdered sugar, plus additional for coating

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 3/4 cups finely chopped hazelnuts
