I’ve got your new summer drink and it’s been my OBSESSION ever since trying a Lavender London Fog latte for the very first time over a year ago at a fabulous cafe in LA. I was so obsessed, I teamed up with Blank Slate Tea here in NYC to create a HOT version this past winter… and now that it’s gorgeous out, here I am making it iced at home! What the heck is a London Fog latte you might be wondering? Well! It consists of milk and earl grey or black tea… this baby is a LAVENDER variation which is just divine. I’ve heard there is a London Fog Starbucks version with lavender but let’s skip the sugar and any other unknown ingredients because it’s SO easy to make at home, promise. Can’t wait for you to try this brand new tea latte recipe that will have you swooning all summer long!

Using lavender as an ingredient

Firstly, yes, you need to buy culinary lavender… it’s ok, do it. You’ll USE it, trust me – You’ll be that person making Lavender lattes all summer long! Making lavender tea at home is so comforting. What I do here, is use a lavender CONCENTRATE you can make and store which I find to be much more potent, delish, and readily available for the iced version. You can use black tea or Earl Grey. I love using black tea to let the lavender shine EVEN MORE, but the Earl Grey will also be super delish with the concentrate and compliment it nicely. Whereas, the hot lavender tea is just not strong enough to be tasted in the drink in my opinion. Use this concentrate in lemonades, other iced teas, in coffee or matcha… sip it heated at night for a nice relaxing treat. So many options. I’ve also been mixing it with red raspberry leaf tea and hibiscus and it adds a great little extra something. Get as creative as you’d like!

The best non-dairy milk (or “mylk”) to use for this tea

I love using my homemade almond/coconut milk which is basically your average almond milk recipe but using half coconut water and water (ratio/recipe here) but you can use any non-dairy milk you love. It won’t make or break this because that lavender is really the key. Fresh coconut or almond would probably be the tastiest or mix them up!

Recommended natural sweetener for your tea

Also… there’s maple syrup in here, people! Just a TOUCH to really enhance that lavender. You can totally skip it or use raw honey or another preferred sweetener. Maple is my favorite though.

    Hi! Apologies if this is somewhere else on your site, but how long does the lavender concentrate last in the refrigerator?  I may make a smaller batch depending on its shelf life 🙂ReplyCancel
