Cream Teas | Why You Should Try Them

Lattes are not just for coffee. Milk in tea can add a whole new dimension to your already delicious cup of tea. It’s common nowadays to walk into a coffee or tea shop and find a green tea latte or a London Fog. We want to offer some new suggestions. At Hackberry Tea, we like to apply the concept of traditional drinks with our unique teas. We think you will love these suggestions for hot or iced lattes. We like to call them cream teas. If you use a fruit tea with hibiscus, be aware the milk may curdle because of the higher acidity levels. We suggest black or green for cream teas.

Bourbon Cream Black

Our Bourbon Cream Black tea is a perfect tea to drink hot or cold when you’re looking for a cozy cup of tea. It’s infused with cocoa, apple, and vanilla blends with a special kick Lapsang Souchong and Keemun reminiscent of a smoky bourbon barrel. When you add some cream or milk, it’s an ideal soothing drink ideal for an afternoon to sit and relax.

Banana Bread Honeybush

Our Banana Bread Honeybush is simply delicious. When I make it as a cream tea, I add some sweetened condensed milk. It tastes like I’m taking a bite of a delicious banana muffin. It’s a perfect drink to get your morning started right, especially if you’re looking for a delightful caffeine-free option.

Chocolate Chip Chai Pu-erh

I love an afternoon cup of coffee, but sometimes I want a flavorful cup of tea. Our Chocolate Chip Chai Tea is often what I go for. Chai is already delicious as it is, and when you add chocolate and milk to it, it becomes a rich and decadent treat.

If you’re looking to enhance the flavor of your tea, adding cream, milk, or steamed milk creates a delightful drink that you can look forward to on special occasions, share with guests, or every day.
