Mint Tea Latte

I got this idea from my mom who used to make sweetened mint tea using tea bags, so I experimented with it to try to improve upon it.

Instructions

  1. 1Bring the water to a boil (let sit for a few minutes to prevent burning the tea).
  2. 2Place loose-leaf tea, mint, and sugar in a French press (or tea pot), add the hot water, stir, and let steep for about five minutes.
  3. 3Froth milk, add to tea, and pour in a large mug.
  4. 4If using the tea pot method, strain tea in a large mug and enjoy.
