You just need 4 simple ingredients to make this hibiscus rose latte!
- Hibiscus Rose Tea - There are so many options for tea that you can use! You can simply use a combination of dried hibiscus flowers and rose petals; you can use a pre-made tea blend, or your favorite bagged tea!
- Rose Water - If you use tea that contains rose, you can omit the rose water if desired! You can find rose water at most grocery stores! It's usually in the aisle with the cocktail mixers as opposed to the baking aisle. You can also find it online, just make sure you're buying food grade rose water!! Also, be aware that rose water is VERY strong! You only need a tiny bit!
- Honey - Hibiscus tea is rather tart, so a small amount of honey or sugar just helps sweeten the tea slightly. But feel free to use as much or as little as you prefer!
- Milk - I prefer using whole milk because it froths the best, but you can also use your favorite plant-based milk if desired!
These are optional but fun ways to garnish the lattes!
How to Make a Hot Tea Latte
Pour the hot water over the tea and let steep for about 5 minutes.
Strain into a mug and stir in the honey and rose water.
Pour in the frothed milk and top with the foam.
Garnish the latte with dried hibiscus or rose petals.
Notes: If you don’t have a milk frother you can use a hand mixer to froth warmed milk. Or you can add warmed milk to a glass jar and shake vigorously for a minute or two!
How to Make an Iced Tea Latte
Pour hot water over the hibiscus rose tea and let steep for about 5 minutes.
Strain and then stir in the honey and rose water.
Let cool to room temperature or chill in the fridge until ready to use.
Fill a glass with ice and pour the tea over top.
Pour over the milk and stir gently.
Garnish the iced hibiscus rose latte with dried hibiscus if desired.
Oat milk typically froths much better than almond milk! Some milks will also note "barista" on them indicating that they're good for frothing!
You can use a hand mixer to gently froth milk, or add it to a glass jar and shake vigorously until it thickens slightly!
