A few weeks ago, my husband and I went to Vancouver, British Columbia to celebrate three years of marriage. One morning, we stumbled on this quaint French bakery with delicious crepes, fresh coffee, and London Fogs. I’m not usually a fan of earl grey tea, but once you mix it with steamed milk, honey, and vanilla….oh it’s a hot cup of wonderful! I am completely hooked. And a bonus – it tastes even better with almond milk!
London Fog (Earl Grey Tea Latte)
Makes 1 tea latte
- 8 oz strong brew earl grey tea
- 4 oz steamed and foamed milk or milk alternative
- 1 tablespoon (1 tea bag) earl grey tea
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla
- 1 tablespoon honey, or agave nectar
- ½ teaspoon dried lavender (optional)
- Brew the earl grey tea in 8 oz of hot water for 4 minutes. Place a plate over the top of your mug so the tea doesn’t escape through the steam.
- Meanwhile, heat the milk, honey, and vanilla in a small saucepan until just steaming. Using a milk frother, foam the milk until you reach your desired froth.
- Remove the tea from the hot water. Pour the milk over the tea and top with the foam. Enjoy!
Notes: Add dried lavender along with the earl grey tea for an extra floral flavor.
