If you love lavender and are looking for something sweet for when that 3PM slump hits, this recipe is for you!

The key to this recipe is using high quality loose leaf tea for the best lavender taste. I find bagged lavender blends have little to no lavender flavor and you really want the lavender taste to come through!

Skim milk is the best for frothing. Skim milk is fortified with protein, which helps the milk foam up and stay foamed. But if you have a type of milk you like to use for foaming, go for it! I bet oat milk would be good in this too.

You do need a frother for this recipe. I found mine for about $10 online and it does the job -- no need for anything fancier than that!
