Ingredient Notes

Chamomile tea latte ingredients.
  • Chamomile tea
    Loose tea, tea sachets, or tea bags can be used to make this drink but I recommend using loose tea or tea sachets since the quality is a lot better.
  • Milk
    Any kind of milk can be used.
  • Vanilla extract
    I like to use vanilla extract since I consider it a flavor enhancer.
  • Cloves
    A warming spice, cloves adds a cozy note to this drink. If you don’t like cloves, feel free to take it out.
  • Cinnamon
    Ground cinnamon and a cinnamon stick are both used in the recipe.

  1. Heat milk, chamomile tea, cloves, and cinnamon stick in a saucepan.

  2. Strain chamomile tea latte into a French press. Add vanilla extract.
  3. Close French press lid and pump the plunger.
    Pump until it doubles on volume.
  4. Pour chamomile tea latte into mugs and garnish with ground cinnamon.

Expert Tips

  • Don’t let the milk come to a boil since it’ll burn the milk. Keep the heat on low.
  • Add vanilla extract after the milk comes off the heat since you don’t want it to cook down and evaporate on the stovetop. The flavor will be weaker if you cook it.
  • Make sure to hold down the lid of the French press so that you don’t make a mess when pumping.
  • Only fill the French press halfway with the chamomile tea latte since it’ll double in volume after pumping the plunger.

Questions You May Have

Can I use almond or soy milk to make this drink?

You can! Any milk you prefer can be used. But know that not all milk will froth as well as whole or 2% milk.

Is there caffeine in chamomile tea?

Chamomile tea is an herbal tea and it’s completely caffeine-free. It’s a great drink for kids too since it doesn’t contain any caffeine or sugar.

How can I sweeten this drink?

When you heat milk, it naturally tastes sweeter so I don’t add any sugar or sweetener. If you want to add something sweet, feel free to add a little honey or honey syrup since it goes well with chamomile.

  3. This is excellent! Thank you for sharing. It worked perfectly. I have no idea how I did not think of this before. I gotta have my lattes. I have no idea how many pumps I have the french press. I just kept going until I got my desired froth level.

    • Hi Elizabeth, if you don’t have a French press, you can use a jar with a tight seal. Put some warm milk halfway into the jar, tightly close the lid and give it a good shake for about 30 seconds. You won’t get as nice a froth as from the French press though.

      Or, you can use a blender or a hand blender but I find those to be too much to clean up.
