Easy London Fog Latte

Easy London Fog Latte

I love Earl Grey tea, lavender, and lattes. Put them together and… HEAVEN in a cup. I’ve been desperately searching for a recipe to make one of these bad boys at home for some time and I finally found one. This recipe is pretty flexible (especially if you have a Keurig K-Cafe or another machine that makes lattes and cappuccinos fairly easily). This recipe is also excellent over ice. Froth the milk while it’s cold and serve over ice to enjoy a great summer beverage. This recipe was adapted from a recipe from Oh, How Civilized.

Ingredients

  • 8-10 oz Earl Grey tea, brewed to package instructions (I use Twinings k-cups in my Keurig, but any brewed Earl Grey will work great!)
  • 3/4 cup milk (I use 2%, but any non-sweetened variety of milk will work well)
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp culinary grade dried lavender, additional for garnish (I buy mine on Amazon)
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Brew Earl Grey tea to package instructions over a tea strainer with the desired amount of dried lavender. 8-10 oz seem to work great for this recipe.
  2. Once tea and lavender have steeped at least 5 minutes, remove the tea strainer containing the dried lavender and discard.
  3. Stir brown sugar and vanilla extract into the lavender tea until well blended.
  4. Steam or heat milk. Use a milk frother, french press, or any other chosen method to steam and froth the milk. If you have a K-Cafe like I do, fill the frothing cup to “Cappuccino” and use the cappuccino setting.
  5. Pour steamed milk into the tea mixture and spoon the frothed milk onto the top of the tea. Sprinkle with lavender garnish.
  6. Pip, pip! Cheerio! Lift your pinky, pretend you’re a Brit, and enjoy!
