Green tea latte
I recently stopped at a very popular coffee shop with my husband where he ordered a Green tea latte. I was kind of looking forward to trying it and perhaps order one for myself as well, however, after trying it, I was really disappointed.
I mean, how much sugar did this green tea latte have? It was not drinkable at all. We had to go home and dilute the thing with more milk and by then the green tea taste was almost gone.
I really don’t know who can drink this sweet drinks but for sure not me.
Anyhow, enough of my rant. This incident prompt me to make my own green tea latte at home and to tell you the truth I don’t know why on earth I waited so long to start make them.
This not only was super easy to make but a hell of a lot cheaper and tastier all together. I actually made a big batch and kept it in the fridge for future consumption. I really love green tea and from now on I am going to use it much more.
It is very cold here in NJ so excuse me while I make another batch of this Green tea latte and warm myself up with it :-).

I have seen many methods of making green tea latte but this is my preferred method.
