Onyx Tealight Latte

January 17, 2024

To celebrate the launch of Onyx teas on Ember Brews, we bring you this simple yet decadent recipe that tea fanatics who have visited Onyx Coffee Labs’ cafes know all too well. Onyx originally served this latte up with a shot of espresso paired with flavors of honey, vanilla, and cinnamon which inspired them to create a tea blend. Onyx’s Tealight Latte consists of black tea from a single farm in the Yunnan Province of China where it is harvested then combined with natural vanilla, crushed cinnamon, and finished with rolled oats to create an incredible creamy texture.
