A spot of tea, summer style—iced green tea latte

Iced Green Tea Latte

Iced green tea latte, September 2012

In a news report during London summer Olympics coverage I heard that Brits drink on average five cups of tea per day. In honor of our neighbors “across the pond” who usually drink their tea with milk and sugar, and because it’s still summer, let’s have our “spot of tea” as a latte poured over ice.

To bring another nationality into the mix, in Italian, latte is milk. Usually in the United States a latte is a drink with steamed milk, but in this recipe the milk (or coconut milk creamer) is just stirred in. Use green tea—decaf if you like—or any flavorful, fragrant black tea. Try So Delicious original coconut creamer to make it fat-free and dairy free.
