  • 1 ½ tablespoon Earl Grey tea loose leaf or bagged
  • ½ cup water boiled
  • ½ cup milk preferably not skim*
  • 1 teaspoon sugar use more, less, or none according to your preference.
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Using whichever steeping method you prefer, steep the tea in the hot water no longer than 5 minutes. Pour the steeped tea into a large mug.
  • Meanwhile, steam the milk. Option 1: Add the milk to a latte milk frother cup with the sugar and vanilla. Steam the milk until hot and frothy.
  • Option 2: Add the milk, sugar, and vanilla to a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk vigorously until steaming, and foamed. Don't boil the milk.
  • Pour into the milk into the mug with the tea. Pour a bit or milk, swirl, pour some more, and repeat as needed to grab all the foam.


  1. *The more fat content in your milk, the more it will foam up. You can use skim milk, but it will not foam. Non-dairy alternatives like soy milk, almond milk, and coconut milk will work but will vary in foaminess depending on the brand.
