Although you wouldn’t know it here in Los Angeles, being in San Francisco over the weekend reminded me that it is in fact fall. This comforting drink is perfect in the afternoon when you want less caffeine than coffee and less sugar than cocoa but are inspired by the crisp sweater weather to drink something hot.
Until fall does finally descend on Southern California, I'm enjoying this drink iced, which is how I first tried it thanks to my best friend Marcella. It's delicious either way!
yields four 6-ounce servings
2 cups boiling water
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- Pour the boiling water over the tea bags and allow to steep for about three minutes. Remove the tea bags and stir in the maple syrup.
- If serving hot, warm the almond milk before adding it to the tea. Otherwise, combine them and refrigerate until read to serve.
