How to make a Ti Latte!
Moe Moe (sleepy) Latte
1 part chamomile. 1 part Lavender, 1 part Cinnamon, natural vanilla extract or pod. Milk of your choice, I prefer Nut Milk, Honey or Maple syrup (optional)
You will need, Coffee press, saucepan, strainer.
Put everything into the saucepan except for vanilla. Medium-low heat until little bubbles form on the sides of the pan and let it simmer for a couple of minutes before turning off the heat. Don’t let it boil. Once steeped, strain into a small coffee press.
If you don’t have a Milk Froth device, use a Coffee press! Give it a good 8 pumps or so, depending how frothy you like it. Then add the vanilla and sweeteners.
