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
1 tsp. Dried Culinary Lavender
1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 tsp. Agave Nectar
1/4 cup Milk
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!
