Earl Gray Latte: Lavender London Fog Recipe

I’ve been putting extra effort into my coffee and tea drinks (just like my cocktails!) recently and this Lavender London Fog recipe is an attempt to recreate a drink that I always get at my favorite neighborhood coffee shop, Souk.

Typically, I don’t prefer anything in my tea. While I’ll doctor up coffee to no end, I drink tea black. This particular Earl Gray latte is the exception to the rule.

What is a London Fog?

So, what is a London Fog, you may ask? And, what are we getting into with a Lavender London Fog recipe?

A London Fog is a tea latte made with Earl Gray tea, milk, and vanilla. Think of it as a vanilla latte, but with a tea base rather than coffee. Then you’ll sweeten it a bit and, where we go crazy, is adding in the lavender for a floral touch. It’s a delicious, creamy, warm your soul kind of drink. I love it on a rainy day — or any day.

Are you a fellow lavender fiend? I’ve shared a lavender latte on the blog before!

Lavender London Fog Recipe

Earl Gray Tea

1 tsp. Dried Culinary Lavender

1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract

1 tsp. Agave Nectar

1/4 cup Milk

Brew a cup of Earl Gray tea for 3 minutes, along with a teaspoon of lavender. If you have a tea infuser, you can put the lavender in there, but I’ve actually just been using a cold brew bag.

Remove the tea and lavender. Stir in the vanilla extract and agave nectar. Add a splash of milk.

Froth 1/4 cup of milk (I use the Nespresso Aeroccino and swear by it!). If you don’t have a frother, just stir the milk into the tea. Scoop the frothed milk on top. If you’re going for presentation, add a bit of lavender or a swirl of agave nectar. Enjoy!
