Citrus Crème Latte


2 heaping Tbsp. whole-leaf black tea (try a robust Nilgiri tea from India)
8 oz. boiling water
1/2 a vanilla bean
2 oz. milk
Sweetener to taste


Tools: heat source, strainer, shaker, muddler or long-handled spoon
Glass: pint glass
Garnish: citrus wedges (lemon, orange or kumquat) to taste; (optional: citrus twist, spices or fruit juice)

Cover tea with boiling water and let steep for up to 4 minutes. Strain out leaves and pour tea into a shaker. Add half a vanilla bean and muddle well. Add milk, sweetener and ice cubes and shake to chill. Strain into an ice-filled pint glass. Squeeze citrus wedges into the drink and leave in the glass. Optionally, you can also garnish with a citrus twist, a pinch of a spice of your choosing, or a splash of fresh fruit juice.
