    DIY Easy Tea Latte

    In the amount of time it takes you to go through your coffee-stand drive through, you could have made your own tea-latte at home for pennies, saved gas, 5 bucks, and the sugars and artificial flavors they put in them.  This one pictured here?  Took 5 minutes and 25 cents.  All organic, healthful, and flavor-packed.  Here's how: 1.  Steep tea of choice double strength.  (Pictured example: Vanilla Plum Crumble, stepped 2 tablespoons in 1 cup of water). 2.
