A warm and cuddly drink made with citrussy Earl Gray tea, vanilla, honey, and steaming milk. Add a bit of lavender if you want, too, for even more cozy-factor! Made dairy-free with oat milk or almond, but feel free to use the milk you like!
1Earl Gray tea bag

Place the tea bag in a mug and add the lavender if using. Let steep for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bag or, if you added lavender, pour the tea through a strainer then back into your mug.
Stir in the honey and vanilla, adjusting both if you like for more or less sweetness or vanilla flavor.
While the tea steeps, heat your milk. I use an electric frother, but you can also heat it on your stovetop until steaming but not boiling, stirring frequently. Froth with a hand-frother if using.
Pour warmed milk into tea mixture and stir to combine. Spoon any froth over the top and serve.
Substitute a vegan-friendly granulated sugar (stir well to dissolve).
