Lavender London Fog Tea Latte

Elevate your common cup with this aromatic, warming and delicious tea latte. 

lavender london fogThe London Fog Tea Latte (also known as an Earl Grey Tea Latte) is rumored to have originated in Vancouver, British Columbia and for good reason. The comfort of warm milk and tea is beyond question on a rainy + cold day here in the Pacific Northwest.

imagePerfectly steeped Earl Grey tea, steamed milk and a bit of vanilla syrup makes up the traditional London Fog Tea Latte. It’s quite the perfect drink when coming in from the cold, curling up with a good book or simply taking pause from the busyness life can bring.

imageThis week, I have felt a particular need for many a London Fog Tea Latte. It’s been rather rainy and windy and there is nothing more soothing or cozy than a decent cup! So instead of running out in less than desirable weather to my favorite tea/coffee shop, I decided to try my hand at making this at home! It’s so simple to make, I almost hesitated to even post the recipe.

imageThe best thing about this recipe (besides its simplicity) is the the homemade lavender-vanilla syrup. It’s so rich and flavorful, it’s dreamy! Known for its medicinal and relaxing properties, lavender provides more than a floral aromait truly evokes a sense of peace and calm. Plus its natural flavor affinity to Earl Grey takes the traditional London Fog Tea Latte to an even better state of perfection.

Even if it’s not rainy or cold where you are, let this tea latte revive you! And if you find yourself in particular need, don’t hesitate to add a little Saint Germain Elderflower Liqueur to your cup. I won’t tell.

Put the kettle on and enjoy this twist on a traditional London Fog Tea Latte.



  • 1 cup of coconut sugar (organic cane sugar will also do)
  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 tbsp dried lavender (culinary grade)
  • 1 vanilla bean (cut lengthwise and seeds scraped)
  • 1 cup of perfectly brewed Earl Grey Tea (loose leaf tea is likely better, but for simplicity’s sake, I used a tea bag. Brew according to tea instructions.)
  • 1/2 cup of steamed milk (I used almond milk, but any milk will do. I also do not own a steamer, so I heated the milk in a small saucepan.)


Lavender-Vanilla Simple Syrup

  1. In a small saucepan, combine coconut sugar, water, lavender and vanilla bean (pod and seeds).
  2. Warm over medium heat and bring to a boil.
  3. Once mixture is boiling, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

  5. Pour liquid through a strainer and into a glass bottle or container.

    You don’t REALLY mean a cup of coconut sugar?

      Great question, Lucie! The cup of coconut sugar is for the lavender simple syrup (which makes more than you need for one tea latte). Approximately 2 tbsp of lavender simple syrup should do the trick per latte! Reserve the rest of the simple syrup for more cozy cups or other drinks. I hope this helps!
