In the 2010 Oscar-nominated film An Education, while Jenny struggles with growing up, her tastes mature beyond her suburban upbringing. Our Earl Grey iced tea, subtly sweetened with lavender-thyme syrup, has a little Paris, a little Oxford, and a lot of virginity.

This recipe was featured as part of our Best Picture Cocktails story.

Instructions

  1. 1Tie tea bags together and set aside.
  2. 2Bring water to a simmer in a large pot over high heat. Remove the pot from heat, add tea bags, and let steep for 5 minutes. Remove and discard tea bags, pour tea into a heatproof container, and let come to room temperature, about 2 hours. Cover and refrigerate until cold.
  3. 3Add lavender-thyme syrup to tea and stir to combine. Serve over ice with lemon slices, if desired.
