After all the craziness of Christmas has subsided, its time to stop and take a well deserved break and enjoy a little “me” time. I love to curl up in my favourite chair with a good read and a soothing, transformative lavender tea latte. Delicate floral notes lightly sweetened with raw honey warms from the inside and aromatic scents calms the senses.

Lavender Tea Latte

  1. Choose your favourite lavender tea blend (we like Chamomile and Lavender from Traditional Medicinals);
    OR use organic culinary lavender (fresh or dried);
    OR use dried stems from your garden
  2. Warm your preferred milk (organic, nut, coconut, etc.) in a small saucepan on stovetop
  3. Bring to a simmer, add tea bags and let steep for a few minutes
  4. Add honey, stevia or agave to sweeten
  5. Add a touch of foam to the top (if you have a frother)
  6. Sit, relax, and enjoy

On days when you’re feeling particularly decadent, sprinkle a few flakes of Fleur de Sel, adding depth and mineral complexity to your latte. For a late afternoon treat, combine with matcha tea for a bit of a caffeine boost.
