Spring drink: Jasmine Lavender Latte

jasmine-lavender-latte_Boatpeoplevintage05If you follow us regularly, you probably know by now that I’m pretty obsessed with lavender. I can’t help it, it just agrees too well with my palate. Put aside that harmony, nothing better than an herbal drink to celebrate the arrival of spring! Drank warm or cold, the Jasmine Lavender Latte is just exquisite!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk of your choice
  • 1 tbs jasmine tea (loose pearls)
  • 2 tbs lavender buds
  • sweetener of your choice

Makes one large cup or two small ones to be shared with a friend ♥

jasmine-lavender-latte_Boatpeoplevintage01In a tea infuser, add the jasmine and the lavender and dunk in hot water for about 3-4 min. If some leaves come out of the infuser, you can use a strainer to get rid of them.
