This is my version of the new Starbucks tea, I tried to make it low in fat and sugar. It is also so much cheaper!

I love the Starbucks version, but I haven't had it in a long time so I can't really compare. I believe 'Bucks uses a rooibos blend of vanilla, peaches, apples and blackberries; I used a Belgian chocolate rooibos from, and since I use a stainless steel infuser, I heated both the milk and the water before steeping the tea for 3 minutes and then adding the rest of the ingredients. Great recipe, but I think I prefer honey over the vanilla syrup and sweetener, or would even like to try a chocolate or caramel syrup or liquer instead -- at least for a stronger tea blend like the Belgian chocolate I used. For a lighter one like vanilla or their creme au caramel, I think this would be perfect. Thanks for sharing!
