  1. Bring filtered water to a boil preferably in a tea kettle instead of the microwave. 

  2. Pour 1/2 cup boiling water into a large coffee mug and add rooibus tea using a tea infuser (I use this one).

  3. Let steep for 3-5 minutes until tea is almost black with just a hint of red. 

  4. Sprinkle in coconut sugar and stir.

  5. Pour 1/2 cup milk into a small saucepan and turn on medium heat. If using raw milk, heat only to 117 F/47 C (use a candy thermometer) and then remove from the heat and promptly pour into the coffee mug to top the triple strength rooibos tea. Otherwise, if using pasteurized milk, heat the milk to a steamy, frothy state and then top.

  6. Sprinkle on freshly ground cinnamon to taste.
