Earl Grey Latte
This earl grey latte can be made with or without dairy, and it is just so fragrant, delicious, and creamy! It's the perfect pick-me-up that is also very relaxing! Serves two.
Servings: 2 people
- 16 ounces milk we used oat milk, but dairy is fine!
- 2 earl grey tea bags or two scoops of loose-leafed
- 4 tablespoons lavender simple syrup adjust accordingly
Lavender Simple Syrup
- 1/4 cup agave syrup or maple syrup
- 1/2 cup water
- 1.5 teaspoons lavender buds
Create the lavender simple syrup. In a small saucepan, combine 1.5 teaspoons of lavender buds in addition to 1/4 of a cup of agave or maple syrup. Mix in half a cup of water, and bring to medium-heat.
Let the mixture simmer for about a minute, then turn heat off. Let the syrup sit for about 20 minutes. Once the syrup has cooled, strain the lavender buds out of the syrup using a sieve.In a medium saucepan over low-heat, heat whichever milk you choose.
Be careful not to burn the milk! We used oat milk.Add the earl grey (loose leafed or tea bags) to the warm, but not scorched, milk. Let the tea steep for about four minutes. This allows the tea to truly infuse within the milk.
Once four minutes are up, discard the earl grey tea bags. For every eight ounces, add three teaspoons of lavender simple syrup. Adjust accordingly!
- For additional creaminess, use a milk frother!
- If agave or maple syrup are not on hand, any other sweetener will work as long as you are not following a certain diet.
- This can easily be doubled for more servings.
- Store the lavender syrup in the refrigerator after using!
