Recipe: Homemade Marijuana Tea Latte

A good morning starts with a cup of tea, but the perfect one certainly starts with weed tea. What can be better than infusing your breakfast with some of your favorite purple strains, for instance? Tea is a perfect raw material for infusion, especially if you do not feel like working too hard for too long. First of all, tea is remarkably easy to make. Secondly, and consequently, you do not have to waste a lot of time on preparations. Thirdly, there are dozens of ways to make it. Let us see what are the main rules of making cannabis-infused tea.

Marijuana Tea Latte

Tips Before You Start

First of all, you need to know that there are a lot of weed-infused tea recipes. They include a different selection of ingredients and methods. However, they are not tied down to the types of strains you use. Some marijuana devotees choose sativa strains, while there are a lot of those, who prefer the indica ones, like, for instance, Purple Nepal or Purple Power strain. I especially enjoy making a nice cup of marijuana-infused tea with my personal favorite Purple Candy strain. This, however, is, of course, a matter of individual preference.

Nevertheless, the method you choose to make marijuana-infused tea is rather important and can have a rather significant influence on the effects you will experience. The first method is the simplest, which is a good thing for most people, but the tea made this way will not be very potent, which is a good thing only for some of us. If you are okay with not-too-potent-marijuana-infused-tea, you can brew your tea with the dried marijuana flowers. You will notice the difference in taste, smell and effects it provides. However, since THC, the main cannabis psychoactive component, is not water soluble, you should not set great store by such a tea.

Luckily, the is a second option open to us. Namely, we can use marijuana-infused fatty products. Depending on your tastes and inclinations, you may consider resorting to the use of such ingredients as coconut oil, butter or even dairy. This approach will yield you a rather potent drink that resembles latte or chai. This is the method we are going to use today to make an incredibly tasty and powerful marijuana tea latte.

The third method supposes the mixture of tea leaves and water that is heated with a tincture.

These time, we are going to make 6 oz of marijuana-infused tea, which is enough for 4 servings.

Equipment Needed

Blender

Sauce pot (with a lid)

Metal tea infuser

Ingredients

6 grams marijuana flowers (ground)/12 grams sugar/fan marijuana leaves (chopped)

2 cups hemp milk/any full-fat milk (with no less than 8 grams of fat per serving)

⅛ stick butter (softened)/¼ cup coconut oil (melted)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 tablespoons honey

Tea leaves (dry)

1 cup water

Cinnamon/other spices

Instructions

  1. Put the marijuana leaves or flowers into the blender.
  2. Add milk, butter or coconut oil and vanilla extract.
  3. Mix the ingredients thoroughly.
  4. When the mixture is ready, let it sit for 60 minutes at room temperature.
  5. Take the sauce pot and pour the mixture into it.
  6. Take the metal tea infuser and fill it with tea leaves.
  7. Put the infuser in the pot.
  8. Pour the water into the pot.
  9. Place the sauce pot on the stove and turn on the medium heat.
  10. Stir the mixture and cover the pot with a lid.
  11. Simmer the mixture for 15-20 minutes. A tip here: Do not let the mixture boil. Once you notice that it starts to bulb, reduce the heat.
  12. Remove the pot from heat.
  13. Now you can get rid of all the leftover if you want. Use a strainer to pour the tea mixture through it.
  14. Take 4 mugs and fill each of them with marijuana-infused tea and 1 tablespoon of honey.
  15. Then, add the dash of cinnamon or any other spice into each mug.

Voila! Your marijuana tea latte is ready. Have a nice high and do not forget to use weed edibles responsibly. Also, for your safety, try your best to avoid people who deem adding milk to tea to be an act of heresy.
