How to make an Earl Grey Tea Affogato
- Brew a cup of Earl Grey tea using hot water and 1 teaspoon of Loose Leaf Earl Grey Tea. Allow the black tea leaves to steep for a few minutes to develop a strong flavor. Once brewed, set it aside to cool.
- If you wish to do a sugar rim, you can do it now. We loved mixing a bit of Earl Grey Loose Leaf tea in the sugar to make it extra fancy.
- Scoop two generous portions of vanilla ice cream into serving glasses or bowls. You can use traditional affogato glasses or regular dessert bowls. If you prefer a sweeter affogato, you can add a teaspoon of your sweetener of choice to the tea.
- Once the Earl Grey tea has cooled to room temperature, you can pour a shot of it over the ice cream.
- As the tea comes into contact with the cold ice cream, it will create a delightful contrast of temperatures and flavors. The ice cream will start to melt slightly, combining with the tea to form a rich and creamy treat.
- If desired, you can add some extra toppings to enhance the presentation and flavor. Consider sprinkling crushed biscuits, chocolate shavings, or a pinch of cinnamon over the affogato for added texture and taste.
- Serve the Earl Grey Affogato immediately while it's still cold and the ice cream is melting. The combination of the aromatic Earl Grey tea and the creamy vanilla ice cream creates a delightful and refreshing dessert experience.
