Homemade Advent Day 12

This week is going to be so busy. I needed a nice winter drink to get me going after a mostly sleepless night. It is especially difficult knowing my week has so much going on (a lot of virtual meetings and working from home projects). I chose to make a sparkling rose latte. If you don’t know what this is, it is a drink that Starbucks (used to? still does?) offer which uses ground rooibos powder, frothed milk, and blossoming rose syrup (a rose flavoured sweet syrup with a red fruit note). I made this myself using a store bought ground rooibos and rose syrup. It is one of my favourite drinks because it is sweet and very tasty. I use 3/4 soy milk and 1/4 water (boiling hot and then whisked until frothy), whisk in the rooibos powder and some rose syrup and there you have it!

Flavors: Creamy, Rooibos, Rose, Sweet, Thick

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C

Ooh That sounds so good I wish the U.S. Starbucks offered this. I might try and make this at home.

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
