This week's Latte is in honor of another cold damp yet wonderful place to visit – London!

We were in London a couple of years ago and I drank a ton of tea. Every afternoon we tried out different tea style and I even bought a really cool teapot that I adore and use.

One of our local Seattle baristas recommended it for me recently after I asked for heavy cream for my tea.  It is a little sweater and has a nice richness to it that is more latte than tea.

Let me know what you think!

PREPARATION

1. Bring your teapot to a boil if you are going old school and use a stovetop.  I actually just use the hot water function on my espresso machine.  Give yourself about a cup and a half of hot water.  Add in 2 ear grey teabags for a really solid flavor that won't get lost when you add in the milk.

2. Let steep for 3 minutes.

3. Steam milk in pitcher. Add your vanilla syrup to your tea cup.

4. Pour steamed milk into serving cup and top with with cinnamon or nutmeg
