Sky Grey is consistently one of Tea Sip's top 10 blends because of its delightful lavender floral and vanilla notes. While this tea is delicious on it's own, we thought these flavors would make a mean french toast! In this recipe, you get the creamy vanilla notes with a light floral finish--and the final touch of maple syrup or honey is just divine. This recipe would also go well with Lavender Honey, Spiced Peaches or Apple Strudel.
Enjoy your french toast with a hot cup of Short Stack, a caffeinated herbal tisane that tastes like pancakes, Bayou City Breakfast, our classic English Breakfast Blend, or go big and double up on Sky Grey.
