Have any of you had the London Fog tea at Starbuck’s? I have, and I love it! Seeing as store-bought drinks are a little on the expensive side, I made a homemade London Fog right in my own kitchen! Delicious with a vanilla, lemon and creamy milky flavour, you will want to make this drink all the time.
This post may contain affiliate links where I could make a small amount without extra cost to you. See my disclosure here.
First of all, start with a tasty Earl Grey tea. I recommend Bigelow Earl Grey. It is a delicious tea, and a fine base for your London Fog. Of course, if you have any other brand of Earl Grey in your cupboard, go ahead and use that.
So, steep your tea in boiling water for at least 2 minutes. You want it to have a nice flavour to start with.
Next, add a vanilla syrup. I recommend Torani Vanilla Flavouring Syrup. I used sugar free, only because that was what I had on hand.
You will need milk, cream, or half and half. I used milk, but I prefer half and half. Gives it a richer flavour. Add as much as you prefer.
Last but not least, I want to recommend my mug. It is a YETI mug, and believe me, if you are a busy mom who’s tea or coffee grows cold as you chase your kids or do that last load of laundry, you’ll definitely want this. Seriously, even without the lid on, it keeps my tea or coffee HOT for a long time! I love it.
Here are the instructions and recipe.
