Just call me a foamed milk snob!
A friend on Facebook recently posted this link on how to make milk foam without a machine ... and it is awesome! Of course I love cappuccinos and tea lattes and after trying this method I am making them all the time.
Thanks to this easy trick, I make espresso in my stove top cappuccino maker and create the foam by hand. I am not exaggerating when I say that it rivals Starbucks, and from my own kitchen no less! Hint: the higher the fat content in the milk, the better the foam. Plus, I don't have to clean much, waste much, or wait long.
This black tea latte really hit the spot. With a little Billy Holiday's I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm playing in the background and a knitting project in hand, it's been a good afternoon.
Ooh, I think I'll have to go get some Chai tea now. The perfect Christmastime drink I think.
