Tea

When it comes to making tea lattes, it’s best to stick with black teas. They’re the strongest of the bunch, and will guarantee a full-flavoured brew that can stand up to plenty of milk. Matcha’s the exception to the rule and we’ve got all the inside tricks on making matcha here. See below for our fave black teas to turn into a latte!

Melbourne Breakfast

One of our fave sips to pair with the first meal of the day, the vanilla partners perfectly with hot creamy milk!

Creme Brulee

Loaded with toasty, burnt caramel flavours, we love turning this dessert-inspired drop into a creamy milk concoction.

New York Breakfast

Cinnamon and vanilla are the standout players in this comforting cup of pancake-inspired goodness!

Caramel Brownie

The ultimate in indulgent sipping, drink up stacks of super sweet caramel and choc flavours.

Assam

When we just want a straight up classic tea latte without all the extras, we love combining Assam’s malty, full-bodied flavours with milk.
