There is something about the smell of Earl Grey that makes me want to curl up in a comfy chair and just spend the entire day lounging around the house. The caffeine isn't enough to really wake me up and the lavender only makes me feel even more relaxed and ready to sleep the afternoon away.
I'm usually a purist when it comes to tea and really don't like sugar or milk added in, but sometimes a tea latte is just what the doctor ordered. The grey weather in New York the past few days is begging for this recipe!
1 tablespoon loose leaf Lavender Earl Grey tea (I have a Buckingham Palace mix that is amazing!)
1 cup/ 250ml water
½ cup/125ml milk, steamed
¼ teaspoon homemade vanilla extract
