This is the perfect comfort tea when the weather is dark and stormy — and especially nice in front of the fireplace with a good book!
1 cup boiling water
1 1/2 teaspoons Mont Blanc Earl Grey or Duchess of Earl Grey tea
1/2 cup steamed or heated milk (any kind)
1-2 teaspoons granulated sugar or sweetener of choice, more or less to taste
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Optional: 1 oz. square high quality white chocolate
To boiling water, add Earl Grey tea and steep for 3 minutes. Strain. Whisk together brewed tea and remaining ingredients until combined and foamy.* Serve hot.
Makes 1 mug.*If you have a milk frother, use it! Frothing the milk adds a delightful lightness to this drink.
