I drink a cup of coffee every morning. Just one, but I could never give it up. Throughout the rest of the day, I drink tea, usually just boring herbal tea. Occasionally, though, I’ll make something fancy, like this earl grey lavender latte.
I don’t use tea bags very often and haven’t since I’ve discovered looseleaf tea. Sometimes, I even make my own tea that I brew in this literal perfect tea brewer
. I don’t always add things, but in this case, a lavender latte was on my mind.
I’m not generally a fan of black tea, but I love Earl Grey. Mostly because it’s flavored with one of my favorite things — bergamot, an orange that is delicately flavored but tastes like the best parts of every citrus. It’s literally perfect with lavender so, here we are.
This easy lavender latte uses homemade lavender syrup, but if you don’t want to make your own, there are plenty of options
out there if you don’t want to go to the trouble. If you do make your own, go kinda easy on the lavender. A little is good, too much and you won’t be able to finish your drink. Trust me.
From there, you’ll brew your tea, froth your milk, and combine them together for a fragrant, relaxing, hot drink that will become an instant favorite on a chilly almost spring day.
Earl Grey Lavender Latte
Creamy, sweet, and fragrant, this lavender latte is the perfect pick me up when you need a few minutes of relaxation.

Steam or froth the milk, and add it to the mug with your tea.
