Chamomile Tea Latte

Servings: 2

Ingredients:

4 cups of milk

About 10 cloves, crushed

4 tablespoons of loose chamomile tea

2 cinnamon sticks

2 teaspoons of vanilla extract (1 per cup)

Ground cinnamon to sprinkle on top

Instructions:

 1) In a saucepan, heat milk on medium-low heat with chamomile, cinnamon stick, and cloves. Bring to a gentle boil.

2) Once milk is at a gentle boil, turn heat off and let the milk steep for 5-10 minutes depending on how patient you are.

3) Pour milk into french press or mug with a strainer. Use a strainer to separate the chamomile tea milk by filtering out the chamomile, cloves, and cinnamon stick.

4) If using french press, place plunger on top and pump 5-8 times to froth.

5) Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to each mug and pour frothed milk from french press into mug.

6) Sprinkle ground cinnamon on top and enjoy!
