You got it – where there's kopiccino, there's gotta be a teh-cino too! What's fascinating about this drink? Here's the twist – we're not pouring the frothy milk over the tea, we're giving the tea a delightful bath in that creamy froth.

Today, I'm bringing out my trusty Hario ChaCha Kyusu Maru teapot for this adventure. If you're into using a cloth-filtered drip pot for your brew, go for it – there are no tea rules here! Personally, I like to brew those tea leaves in some boiling water and let 'em steep, rather than the whole pulling and dripping thing. But hey, you do you! So, what do you reckon? Let's dive right into the recipe, shall we?

  • Black Tea Leaves, 10g

  • Boiling Water, 1L
