How To Make Your Own Tea Latte In Starbucks

By | September 4, 2009


Do you want to try something new at Starbucks? Then why not create your own tea latte. It’s simple and easy to do.

What do you need? First, a tall order of hot black tea, preferably Earl Grey. Tell the barista to make room for milk, then ask for some honey and about a full paper cup of “half-and-half”.


What is half-and-half? Half-and-half is a mixture of equal parts milk and cream, and is 10 to 12 percent milk fat. If it’s not available at the condiments area, then ask some from a barista.

So anyway, here’s a shot of all your “ingredients”:


What do you do now?

Steep the tea for 5 minutes. Remove the bags and add the honey. Then slowly add the half-and-half while stirring the tea. Here’s a snapshot of me doing it.


What does this taste like? Personally, I find it delicious and refreshing. It’s really an interesting blend of flavors – just like how most tea lattes taste like.

Try it one of these days when you’re not in the mood for coffee.
