During my time as a barista, I made countless lattes. Traditionally a latte starts with a perfectly pulled shot of espresso and 8 ounces of freshly steamed milk poured on top, leaving ¼ inch room for foam with the consistency of melted ice cream to top it off. Tea lattes were a bit of a red-headed stepchild back then and I'm excited to see they are now being given the attention they deserve.

Iced tea is a classic summer-time ritual and distinctive American beverage. Legend has it that Richard Blechynden, an English entrepreneur and merchant, started serving iced tea on a hot day at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. Although many quality ready-to-drink iced teas are commercially available today, brewing iced tea at home is an easy and convenient way to enjoy the fresh and pure goodness of whole leaf tea.
