I confirmed last night that I don't need a glorified milk frother to make some delicious latte. My good old hand held mixer is getting the job done just fine with its whisking attachment. The tea fanatic in me still says it would be nice to have a dedicated milk frother which can probably do even better job but the practical me says I should go without it.
Who will win?
I'm not sure yet. Meantime last night I decided to mix up my tea flavours for some fun. I blended David's Tea Pure Chai with Salted Caramel and steeped it at higher concentration that I usually would. I added some maple syrup to the brew when it was done.
In a separate cup I heated up some whole milk until it foamed up and then whisked it until it formed a thick froth on the top. I then poured the frothy milk into my steeped tea.
It was delicious. It was paradise. It made my taste buds dance hula with joy.
