We are doing a fun little mini series on using Lavender Chamomile Tea in innovative ways. This recipe a fun and tasty way to make plain rice into something extraordinary!
Not only is Lavender Chamomile Tea refreshing hot or cold it makes a super delicious ingredient in many recipes we will be adding this week!

Lavender Chamomile Tea Infused Rice
1.5 cups Lavender Chamomile Tea
1 cup jasmine rice
In a rice cooker add your Lavender Chamomile Tea and 1 cup jasmine rice set for white rice. You can also do this on the stove with instructions from the back of the rice, just subbing out the Lavender Chamomile tea for the water. Try this with any variation of rice.
We garnished with some fresh chamomile flowers and parsley chopped finely with a few dried culinary lavender buds. But we think a little bit of slivered almonds would also be a nice garnish.

We are addicted to Lavender Earl Grey lattes at our house. I was thinking about how to use it in other ways and this is what happened...a Lavender Earl Grey Latte Pie...umm, yes!
We started our obsession with Lavender Earl Grey when we discovered about making tea concentrates. You can see our post on that here, but I will sum it up. It is a concentrated tea made with 2-3x the tea and simmered a touch longer than just your average tea. Once it is cooled it can last in your refrigerator for 3-4 days. This allows you to be able to make ice cold tea in just minutes. You place in a glass ice, half of concentrate and half water (or milk). I have included the recipe below so you don't have to go back and forth.
This pie is delicious with our Lavender Shortbread Cookie crust, but you can use whatever crust you desire. But the shortbread cookie lends itself so well in this recipe.
Here is the recipe for concentrate as you will use it in the recipe for the latte pie.
Lavender Earl Grey Latte Pie
1 cup Lavender Earl Grey Tea concentrate
1 cup milk
1/4 cup lavender simple syrup
3 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup milk
In a small bowl, whisk cornstarch and 1/4 cup milk until smooth. Set aside.
In a small saucepan, over medium heat bring 1 cup milk, 1 cup Lavender Earl Grey Tea concentrate, and lavender simple syrup to a simmer. Stir frequently as to not scorch your milk to the bottom of the pan.
When you have reached a simmer gradually whisk cornstarch mixture into tea and hot milk. Stir while it returns to a simmer and thickens, about 3-4 minutes. Pour pudding into pie shell. Refrigerate for about 3 hours or until chilled. Serve with lots of whip cream it adds the creamy latte flavor.
