White Tea Rose Latte

 

For this month’s recipe, I wanted to step outside my typical meat and veggies and share this gorgeous frothy latte. Coffee was one of the first foods I reintroduced when I started AIP three years ago. I do well with it when my sleep and stress is in check, but new motherhood has both of those lifestyle pieces going haywire. White tea, on the other hand, has low levels of caffeine that do not affect my health, and I just love the delicate taste of it.

If you can source a high-quality organic silver needle white loose leaf tea, it is my favorite for this recipe. Rose water can be found in the international aisle of many grocery stores or easily on Amazon. If you’re new to the taste of rose water, it’s quite floral of course and a common ingredient in Middle Eastern recipes. I always recommend those following the AIP to explore world cuisines for new flavors and preparations. It keeps an elimination diet interesting and fun to follow.
