The other day I was invited to "afternoon tea". The tradition of afternoon tea began back in the mid 1800s, when the Duchess of Bedford started having a tray of tea with bread and butter served to her in the mid-afternoon. The British tea of choice is generally Earl Grey. Earl Grey is a tea blend with a distinctive flavor and aroma derived from the addition of oil extracted from the rind of the bergamot orange, a fragrant citrus fruit. It is named after the 2nd Earl Grey, British Prime Minister in the 1830s.
Not being a total tea expert I ordered an Earl Grey Almond Latte. Seriously, it was one of the most delicious tea drinks I have ever had. It got me thinking, I could make this. I could keep all the flavor without all the added sugar. As I write this I am enjoying a no add sugar Earl Grey Almond Latte. Here's how you do it.
