  • 1 earl grey tea bag
  • 1/2 tsp dried lavendar optional
  • ½ cup of boiling water


  • 1 ½ cups ice cubes
  • ¾ cup any kind of milk Starbucks uses %2 milk, I use unsweetened oat or coconut milk
  • 1-2 TBSP vanilla syrup*
  • Or use 1 TBSP honey or white sugar and 1/2 tsp vanilla**



  • Pour hot water into a glass cup, steep the tea bag and lavendar for 5 minutes.
  • While the tea bag is steeping, pour about 1 ½ cups of ice cubes into a large glass and set aside.
  • Remove the tea bag from the tea and strain out the lavendar. Then add in the vanilla syrup or honey with the vanilla extract to the tea. Mix to combine.
  • Pour the tea over the ice. Then add in the ¾ cup of milk. Stir to combine and enjoy!


*Vanilla Syrup: To Make your own vanilla syrup, place ½ cup white sugar and ½ cup of water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to boil and cook for about 4 minutes while it bubbles. Stir only a few times when the sugar starts to dissolve. Remove from the heat and stir in 1 tsp vanilla. Store in a glass jar in the fridge.
** I find this option just as good. There really isn’t a need for the syrup when you use the honey and vanilla.
It’s good to note that the 16 oz Starbucks version (grande) probably has more like 2 TBSP vanilla syrup (1 pump = ½ TBSP & they use 4 pumps). So if you want a more authentic home Starbucks drink add a bit more /syrup/sugar!
