How to make frothed milk for tea

 Frothed cup of tea

Making frothed milk is not overly difficult and can really make a cup of tea extra special. All you need is some milk (the higher fat milk the better) and a great cup of tea. Let's get started!

What types of tea go best with frothed milk?

Really any tea that you would normally add milk to. But two of our favorite teas to get frothy with are Pumpkin Spice tea and Chai. The hint of spices in these teas mixed with the milk just make the tea smooth and even more delicious.

How to froth your milk?

Step 1: Make your tea according to the directions on the back of your bag of Great Mississippi tea. Steeping times are important for the best flavor!

Step 2: Time to heat up the milk. You will need enough milk for each cup. Approximately 1/4 cup of milk for each cup. Place it into a bot and begin to heat it slowly. Do not bring it to a full boil and make sure to stir it often. Milk can quickly burn to the bottom of a pot if you don't keep stirring. Heat the milk until bubbles start to appear and quickly stop.

Step 3: Break out your whisk. You can either do this by hand or with an electric one. The electric one does make it much faster and they are usually not very expensive online. You will want to start whisking in a tall enough glass with good space for the milk to whisk up a bit once you get whisking. Stop whisking once you have reached the desired foam level you like. 

Final step: Add the milk to your tea. Add topping if you wish and then enjoy.

Great tea toppings for regular tea

It is fun to add some extra flavor to your tea. During the winter we love to have a tea toppings tray available so we can sit down for a cozy evening tea with extra special flavor to it. It feels a little extra special.

So here are some great tea mixes and some toppings to go with it:

Salted Caramel - Black Magnolia, Black tea, frothed milk, caramel syrup topping and a sprinkle of salt. The natural maltiness of this tea mixed with the milk, caramel and salt will make for a great salted caramel beverage.

Pumpkin Pie - Pumpkin Spice tea, frothed milk and a sprinkle of Pumpkin Pie Spice. Bonus add a dash of ground cloves for an even more spectacular flavor.

Double Chocolate - Mississippi Mud tea (chocolate flavored tea), frothed milk or whip cream, chocolate syrup topping and a sprinkle of cocoa powder.

Warm Spice  - Chai, frothed milk, a sprinkle of your favorite spice such as Cinnamon, All Spice or Ground Cloves.

Fun and fancy is not just reserved for coffee. You can turn your tea into a real tasty treat too.
