When I was growing up my father always drank a cup of tea in the morning and he would always insist the whole family did the same. ‘You should always drink something hot first thing in the morning’ he would always say. I can just hear him now. You may already know from this post that I am quite a tea lover. I stock a wide variety of teas in my home and every day I drink at least 3 cups flasks of tea. Every day after lunch I have a siesta or ‘quiet time’ as my daughter calls it. During siesta I hit the pause button on life, I sit down to read and just relax with my thoughts. This Lavender Earl Grey Tea Latte has been the perfect accompaniment to siesta time. The lavender soothes my mind while the earl grey tea gives me just enough pick me up to get through the afternoon slump.

Earl Grey Tea Latte goes by many names. London Fog Latte, Vanilla Tea Misto and in Scotland it is known as a Vancouver Fog. Rumour has it that the Earl Grey Tea Latte was invented in Vancouver. I once had an Earl Grey Tea Latte at Starbucks in Vancouver back when my husband and I worked on cruise ships. A quick google search led me to the original Starbucks recipe. Vanilla syrup is standard in an Earl Grey Tea Latte but I have replaced it with homemade blueberry lavender syrup and a dash of homemade vanilla extract. This tea is a real treat!

How to make a Lavender Earl Grey Tea Latte

Pimp out your loose leaf Earl Grey tea leaves with Organic Culinary Lavender .

If you don’t have loose leaf Earl Grey use a teabag and add a teaspoon of culinary lavender buds to a tea infuser.

Brew a strong cup of tea.

Froth your milk. I use my Nespresso Aeroccino Plus Milk Frother. Add the vanilla extract directly to the frother. It tastes like vanilla whipped cream that way!  Add milk and lavender syrup to the cup of freshly brewed tea and voila! A delicious fragrant cup of Lavender Earl Grey Tea Latte awaits!
