Tips on making this recipe: 

1) If you don’t have an electric tea kettle, you don’t know what you’ve been missing.  Once you start using one, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without one.  You can find one here.

2) Use coconut milk from a can, not the box-type milks.  The milk from boxes don’t mix well with tea and chunks of coconut float to the top.  I use this coconut milk.  

3) If you’re trying to reduce sugar, you can use a few drops of maple-flavored liquid stevia instead.  You can find it here.  

I used to be obsessed about coffee, now I love tea instead.  Finding fun ways to change-up my daily mugs of tea has been a new passion.

A++ Super delicious. I didn’t use the brown sugar and only used a tsp of maple syrup and it was plenty sweet for me. Sooo good and yummy on a cold morning. Thank you for a lovely recipe.
