Tea Lattes

There's nothing more autumnal than a soothing, aromatic, creamy tea latte. With the changes in the season, things are more colourful, more sensory and cosier, and a well-prepared tea latte is exactly what we're craving. 

But what exactly is a tea latte? It's tea with milk and sugar. Yes, but not quite!

A tea latte is made with tea and steamed or frothed milk. You can use any tea to make a tea latte. From black tea to Rooibos, herbals and green teas to make your favourite tea latte. 

For a quick and easy tea latte, we love to use Chai and matcha green teas that make delicious tea lattes. Bold flavours at this time of year, hints of spices, vanilla, malt, chocolate, ginger and cinnamon, are ideal for warm and frothy tea lattes. 

We have selected a handful of our favourite autumnal teas that taste fantastic with the addition of frothy milk. 

Tea Lattes


Irish Malt – Loose-Leaf Tea

One of our all-time favourite teas, this delicious loose-leaf tea has been specially selected for its robust, spicy Assam flavours. Irish Malt tea is accented with hints of Irish whisky flavour and authentic cocoa pieces. The extravagant taste makes this a delightful tea, malty and delicious as a tea latte.

Organic Matcha Horai 

Our organic Matcha Horai is mild and sweet Matcha that tastes soft and pleasant. Matcha does not need the addition of milk, and the frothy creamy consistency is created in the preparation using a bamboo whisk.

Matcha is a fine, green powder used for the traditional preparation of the Japanese Tea Ceremony.

To create your own Tea Ceremony, put 1g (about half a level teaspoon) of Matcha powder in a warmed bowl, add freshly pre-boiled water, ideally at 80c - 90c and froth using a bamboo whisk for around 15 seconds. Once a fine foam appears on the surface, the tea is ready for drinking.

The smoothness of Matcha is created by stripping all the delicate stems and veins from whole leaves before drying and careful grinding with granite mill wheels. This creates a very fine powder which completely dissolves when well-whisked, meaning the entire leaf is drunk. The concentrated green tea powder is full of nutrients.

Rooibos Hot Chocolate – Loose-Leaf Tea

Our Rooibos Hot Chocolate is one to try if chocolate is your go-to treat! This indulgent blend of fine Rooibos. Rooibos is enhanced with hints of Irish cream, vanilla and cocoa. This aromatic 'hot chocolate' is a sumptuous treat without calories and no caffeine, and it's ideal as a tea latte.
