Halvah, a popular Middle Eastern treat made of tahini, is the star of this cozy iced latte that showcases a perfect balance of savory and sweet.

- Put the milk, halvah, honey, and cardamom in a medium bowl, and whisk until the halvah is mostly dissolved. Transfer to a heatproof mug. Holding the mug in one hand, place under the steam wand so the bottom of the wand is just below the surface of the milk at an angle. Start steaming the milk. While keeping the mug at an angle, allow the steam to move the milk around. Once the milk begins to increase in volume, lift the mug up higher so the steam wand immerses deeper into the milk (this will prevent large bubbles from forming and will make a fine milk foam). When the foam has almost reached the top of the mug and you can feel that the milk in the mug is quite hot, stop steaming. Tap the mug a few times to remove any larger bubbles.
4.To serve, fill a glass with ice. Pour the espresso over the ice, then top with the halvah milk.
