Elevate your common cup with this aromatic, warming and delicious tea latte.
The 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.
Perfectly 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.
This 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.
The 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 aroma—it 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.
