Did you know that in Elizabethan times when baths weren’t a common practice, lavender was used to perfume clothes and bed linen? I don’t know about you, but I’d much rather just take a shower and use my lavender for other purposes; such as delicious tea Recipes!
In this article, I share my very own pleasantly sweet, creamy, floral and refreshing Lavender Milk Tea Recipe. Be sure to subscribe to Tea End Blog to be automatically entered to win free tea/books/stuff during Tea End Blog Give-Aways!
Yields: 1 serving (about 20 ounces)
1 ½ cups (12 ounces) Unsweetened Almond Milk
2 teaspoons Dried Lavender Buds, separated

Pinch of Sea Salt
Step 1 – Whisk the Sugar and Salt into the Unsweetened Almond Milk until Sugar and Salt are dissolved and the milk foams. Pour in Mason Jar and place in refrigerator.
Step 2 – Brew the Black Tea with 1 teaspoon of Lavender for 5 minutes. Pour Black Tea infusion into another infuser containing the other teaspoon of Lavender. Let sit until room temperature.
Step 3 – Pour Black Tea infusion into the Mason Jar contents until jar is full. Shake. Place in refrigerator until chilled.
Step 4 – Enjoy!

I was inspired to create my very own Lavender Milk Tea Recipe when I sipped one Recipe created by Hot & Cold, a local Dallas Tea Shop. I liked the tea shop's Recipe but I noticed that the lavender, milk and sweetener weren't of the best quality.
I thought to myself, "This would taste so delicious if organic lavender was used..." My Lavender Milk Tea Recipe is 100x better than the Recipe that I tasted at Hot & Cold! I'm not trying to toot my own horn, but, toot toot!
Instead of a lavender syrup, I infused fresh lavender with organic Assam black tea. The fragrance was slight but poignant enough to permeate the palette.
A little pinch of Salt can go a long way. Adding Salt to Lavender Milk Tea Recipe brings out all the flavors of not only the lavender but also the Assam.
Lavender Milk Tea can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. The lavender will have the time to marinate fully in the black tea making the taste even smoother.
My Lavender Milk Tea Recipe is so softly fragrant and sweet, creamy, smooth, and refreshing that you won't be able to get enough.
