Many cafés that offer a higher end tea charge more, thus increasing profits, but also see an increase in unit sales. Adding tea lattes to your menu opens up a whole new world of hand-crafted beverage options, and it all starts with your premium tea. Tea lattes can be made with all types of tea: blackgreen, and even exotic options like rooibos and matcha. Once you decide which type of tea you want, choose your milk and add your favorite syrup to create a unique specialty beverage. Once you nail down the basic formula, the customization options are endless. Get started with the basic recipe found below:

Tea Latte Recipe

1. Choose your tea: black, green, herbal.
2. Start steeping your hot tea pouch in about 6 oz. of hot water. (Generally, 4 minutes for black and green, 5 minutes for herbal)
3. While your tea is steeping, steam about 6 oz. of milk.
4. Pour your steamed milk over your tea once it is done steeping.
5. Add your favorite flavored syrup to complement the flavor profile of the tea.
