DIRECTIONS

  • Put powdered milk, vanilla bean (split in two and seeds scraped out in the pot) and sweetener in a teapot.
  • Pour 2 tbsp of the boiling water in the teapot and mix well with a spoon, you should get a smooth paste (it is important that you do this or the powdered milk might sort of "curdle", don't ask me why but it does it!).
  • Add the teabag(s) to the teapot and pour remaining boiling water, mixing well; let steep 5-7 minutes (or longer if you like a stronger tea flavour).
  • Strain to get rid of the vanilla pieces (you don't need to do it if you use vanilla essence, of course).
  • If you have a milk "frother" you can use it to have a lightly foamy version (I suggest you do it directly in the serving mug/cup, or the light froth won't last).
  • A stronger-adult version can be made by substituting vanilla bean/essence with a vanilla flavoured liqueur.
  • Or, you can just add it.
  • Sip preferably on a comfy couch, cuddled up under a blanket with a good book, a pet, and a nice background music-- enjoy!
