Do you remember my favorite lavender earl grey tea latte recipe aka the London Fog? Welp, I have a new favorite and it's perfect for the upcoming shift into spring. Introducing the rose bud earl grey tea latte!
To quote my sister here, this lightly floral morning beverage is "the greatest thing since sliced bread" and "take a sip and feel like you are instantly in Bridgerton". LOVING the latter because TBH its too true 🤣.
Apart from binging Bridgerton with a mug full, this rose bud earl grey tea latte is also the perfect caffeinated beverage to warm up with on a chilly spring morning. Just a hint of floral flavor!
Quick side note: I got tired of burning the bejesus out of my hands whenever I made a hot beverage in my old glass mugs so I grabbed a few of these double wall glass coffee mugs. Microwave and dishwasher safe, SO worth it!

With the classic black tea base and just a hint of floral flavor, this latte is the perfect way to warm up on a chilly spring morning!
- Brew earl grey tea with dried rose buds, letting it steep for about 5 minutes. Remove tea bags/tea strainer. If not using a tea strainer, make sure to strain the tea before adding the milk.
- If you don't have a steamer, scald ¼ cup of milk in the microwave, or on the stove. Using a milk frother or an immersion blender, froth the milk until you've got about a ½ cup.
- Pour steamed milk into the brewed tea, making sure to pour the milk from underneath the frothy top.
- Gently stir in vanilla and sugar. Top with frothy milk. Serve warm and enjoy!
I prefer to use vanilla paste because it has more flavor and a little bit of texture, adding richness to the latte. However, vanilla extract will also work just fine!
If you're not a fan of white sugar, you can try any of your favorite sweeteners! Agave, honey, etc.
