Cooking with herbs is nothing new, but heating those herbs and making them into simple syrup with honey is a novel idea in most kitchens. The sweetness and floral tones of the lavender make for a perfect frothy latte.
1 cup water
1 cup honey
2 tablespoons fresh lavender
1 cup hot, brewed black tea
1/2 cup heavy cream or non-dairy substitute
Combine water, honey, and lavender in a pot over medium high heat.
Bring to a boil for 2 minutes.
Reduce to low flame and cook until honey dissolves.
Strain out lavender, allow liquid to cool and then transfer to a jar.
Pour tea into a cup.
Add 2 to 3 tablespoons lavender syrup into the tea.
Place the cream (or non-dairy alternative) into a blender and whir for 10 to 15 seconds until frothy.
Pour into the tea.
