  • Boil water.
    Boil water on the stovetop or use an electric kettle with a temperature setting (water set to 208°F). Use filtered water for a better tasting tea.
  • Combine tea, lavender buds, and hot water in a teapot. 
  • Cover teapot and steep for 5 minutes.


  • Heat milk.
    Heat milk on the stovetop by simmering on low until it gets hot. Keep careful watch to make sure the milk doesn't come to a boil. Stir occasionally.
  • Pour hot milk into a French press.
  • Pump French press plunger until milk doubles in volume.
    Move the plunger up and down to pump air into the milk.


  • Strain tea leaves and pour tea into a cup.
  • Stir in sugar and vanilla extract.
  • Pour frothed milk from the French press into cup with tea.
    Optional: Garnish with dried lavender buds.


  • You can take out the dried lavender if you wish -- the drink is still delicious without it.
  • I used loose Earl Grey tea but you can easily swap it with a tea sachet.
