If you haven’t checked out Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur yet, I highly recommend it. It’s gained a huge following for good reason. The collection of poems are accessible, raw and real AF, dealing with themes of love, abuse, femininity, loss, healing and more. Most are bite-sized and perfect to savor here and there throughout your day. Don’t be fooled! These short poems have a lot to unpack.
While you’re reading and experiencing all the feels, why not enjoy a tasty tea latte inspired by Milk and Honey. Like the poems, this recipe is short and easy to make, but it packs a lot of flavor. You can enjoy this latte warm or cold, depending on your mood. Since it’s now summer here, I’ll be making mine iced.
8 oz milk (or the milk of your choice, I used rice milk)
4 oz water
chai tea, 2-3 tbsp loose or 2-3 bags
honey (to taste)
- Pour the water and milk into a sauce pan and heat the mixture on the stovetop until it’s good and hot, but not quite boiling. Remove from heat.
- Steep 2-3 bags (or 2-3 tbsp if loose) of your selected tea for the amount of time directed on the package. Normally 4-5 minutes.
- After removing the tea bags or straining out the loose leaves, add honey to taste. I don’t like mine overly sweet, but you might. Remember, you can always add more.
- Pour your latte into a mug if you’d like it warm. Let it cool for a bit and pour it over ice for an iced latte or blend it with ice 50/50 for a blended one. Enjoy!
