This Pu-Erh Latte Lush Recipe Is a Creamy and Comforting Twist on a Classic

Treat yourself with this creamy and sweet recipe filled with almond milk, cinnamon sticks, nutmeg and maple syrup. 

Nothing screams “treat yourself” like a latte. This pu-erh latte lush recipe is creamy, nutty and sweet with notes of cinnamon and ground allspice. Rich, earthy pu-erh tea forms a great base for almond milk, maple syrup and warm spices including cinnamon and nutmeg. For an extra special treat, top your latte with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon for a truly photo-worthy cup. Let us know your favorite part of this tea below!

When it comes to making this pu-erh latte lush recipe, the key lies in the steeping time. Over-steeping pu-erh tea can lead to a bitter taste. Aim for 3-5 minutes depending on the strength you prefer. Additionally, you can swap out maple syrup for another natural sweetener, like honey, brown sugar or vanilla extract. Love lattes?
