Vanilla Oat Milk Latte and Plain Tea Sipdown (271)

A little while ago I asked my BIL to buy me Oat Milk so I could make a latte with Dessert by Deb’s Pumpkin Pie Tart. I was worried the apple in it would curdle the milk but Deb recommends it as a latte. However, after talking to Roswell Strange about it, she said I could probably get away with using my usual milk since the apple pieces weren’t acidified.

That left me with the vanilla oat milk. Since I haven’t had it before, I was worried about using up all of a tea on a latte with it in case I didn’t like the flavour of the oat milk and thus wasted a tea. Or if I did like it, I wouldn’t know if it was because of the milk or the tea. Sorry if that’s confusing.

Anyways, when I decided to make this tea today, I realized it I used the whole sample, I could make a small latte and also have a plain cup to use as a control in my vanilla oat milk latte experiment. So that’s that I did. I also tried the vanilla oat milk plain and if I’m being honest, I didn’t love it. When I froth almond milk, I find it gets a sort of cardboard taste to it and this oat milk had a touch of that right from the beginning. That also came through in the smell of the frothed milk. With that said, I was shocked at how well the oat milk frothed. It basically was all froth. That’s a point in it’s favour.

I started with the latte. It’s sweet, which I’m guessing is the brown sugar in the tea. And oat-y, which would be the milk. It kind of tastes like brown sugar oatmeal which is fine, but definitely not what I wanted from my latte. Personally, I don’t think I’m a fan of oat milk from this very limited experience.

I don’t think I’m a huge fan of this tea in general either. I tried the plain tea and it was more of that brown sugar sweetness. Not much beyond that though. Well, honey notes from the honeybush base and brown sugar. Maybe a touch of cinnamon but sweet cinnamon, which I don’t love. Definitely not saying snickerdoodle to me in either plain or latte form. Boo!

Such a shame it didn’t work out with the oat milk. Oat milk is one of my favs!

I still have more in the container so if there is a certain tea or way of having it you suggest, I am willing to give it another try.

I was surprised to not really like oat milk, given how much I love other oat things!

I suppose it could also be the brand I got. We could only find shelf stable Earth’s Own So Fresh in less than 2 litres. I was recommended the Barista Oatly but either my BIL couldn’t find it or couldn’t find it in a small size.

I recently had to change from almond milk to oat milk; for whatever reason suddenly almond milk is making my GI act up, but so far I’m not having that issue with the oat. I used to only get the vanilla (cause I was worried about taste), but I rarely have milk “plain” regardless (it’s always in tea lattes, smoothies, etc) so I tried the regular recently since some of my lattes/smoothies just seemed unbarably sweet. I’m shocked I’m liking this better (if I was drinking plain, I doubt that would be the case, though). I have very limited brand options in my town, though.

I watched a youtube video where she made a latte with tea infused milk (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dj3fni6PrA). I thought that was brilliant so I am trying one later. I used the oat milk for it so that’s currently set up in my fridge. Hopefully that one goes better than this one.

Received this as a sample in a previous order and just finished it off. Really enjoyable! Tons of brown sugar goodness, and a nice balance of cinnamon. Would’ve been excellent with a bit of oat milk, but I was at work when I made it and had none on hand.
