Delicious Rooibos Rose Tea Latte. A healthier homemade vegan version of the popular Starbucks drink!


  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 Rooibos tea bag
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tsp maple syrup or honey (or to taste)
  • 2 tsp rose water
  • 1/2 cup plant-based milk (any milk of your choice; I like cashew or almond here)
  • cinnamon (for garnish, optional)


  1. In a small pot bring the water to a boil.
  2. Turn the heat off, add the Rooibos tea bag and let steep for 5-7 mins.
  3. Take the teabag out, add the vanilla extract, maple syrup, rose water, plant-based milk, and stir.
  4. Bring back to a boil, let it cook for 1-2 mins, then take off the heat.
  5. Using a handheld frother, froth the latte right in the pot for a few seconds or according to the instruction by the manufacturer.
  6. Pour into a mug, dust with cinnamon if desired, and enjoy!


This latte is great even if you don't own a frother, it just adds a nice fancy foam on top. My frother was just $10 and I use it every day - definitely a purchase I'd recommend.
