London Fog Earl Grey Latte

Light, yet creamy and delicious.

Let me introduce you to the London Fog Latte, also known as an Earl Grey tea latte. Hot Earl Grey tea is blended with frothy almond milk, raw honey, and vanilla extract. It’s pretty much heaven in a cup.

I started drinking this delicious drink about a year ago when I saw it on a blog or in a shop somewhere, I can’t remember now. What I do know is that this delightful cup of goodness has found a special spot in my tea loving heart.

I have a confession to make, I went 30 years not putting milk in my tea. I could not stand the taste! That’s because I was using dairy milk, as soon as I tried almond milk I was in love. I have no idea why, I enjoy heavy cream in my morning coffee but I can not stand it in my tea. That’s okay, I’ll save my dairy for coffee and hot cocoa.

The London Fog is said to have originated in the Pacific Northwest, nowhere near the London England like I first assumed. It actually endears me to it all the more since I have so many friends “up north”.

A London Fog Latte is the perfect way to celebrate early spring, though I tend to drink it all year round. Now that I make my own Earl Grey tea, my french press has been known to hold tea leaves instead of coffee grinds. What can I say, a cup of tea and a good book like “Little Women” get me every time…

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book ling enough to suit me.”

~C.S. Lewis

I use orange blossom honey because it is simply amazing, as an added bonus it blends well with the citrus notes of the Bergamot.
