Lifting the Fog: This is a London Fog


On Monday, a few people wanted to know what a London Fog drink is. It is amazing. And this is how you make it. Or at least how I make it.

Ingredients:

Earl Grey Tea (I use loose leaf in the mornings because that’s what I have that is caffeinated. I use the decaf packets in the afternoon.)
Milk (of your choice)
Cinnamon
Vanilla Syrup
Sweetener (of your choice)

003 006 010 013 018

Directions:

Prepare the Early Grey Tea as normal
Add sweetener and vanilla syrup
Heat (but don’t boil) your milk
Add milk to the tea
Top with a dash of cinnamon and stir

I use my milk heater and frother for my London Fog.

A Harvest of Blessing
A Savory Feast

    I love London fogs, but until seeing your post I had no idea how to make them! Thanks so much for sharing 🙂

      I am glad! I didn’t know you could get them at coffee shops until I posted this. I just saw a recipe online and played around with it.

    I’m going to have to try this. Sounds so tasty!

      You’ll have to let me know what you think!

    I like tea but just normal tea! I’ve mistakenly tried Earl Gray once and I thought it tasted like flowers! But it looks nice!

      You know what? Your comment made me think that I should try some variations on this with other teas. I dislike Earl Grey on its own, but with the cinnamon and vanilla, I love it. But, I think I am just a cinnamon addict.

    Oooh, this sounds so good!

      Thanks! I hope you’ll try it.

    Yum!! I only recently heard of this drink, and I’m so intrigued!

      Apparently Starbucks will make them if you ask, but I think they’re pretty easy to make at home. I don’t always heat/froth my milk, if I’m running short on time.

    I love London Fogs! I’ve never tried them with cinnamon, though.


    • Sarah | August 16, 2014 | Reply

      Oh! I didn’t know that there were ones without cinnamon. I saw a recipe online awhile back and have kind of made it my own since then, but that was the only place that I had ever heard of them.

        The one I got at Starbucks years ago didn’t have it – I’m allergic, actually. But I’m sure it’s much better that way!

    Thank you so much for sharing this! I can’t wait to try it tomorrow! I love so much that you have syrups at your coffee station.


    • Sarah | August 16, 2014 | Reply

      I hope you’ll like it! It’s one of my favorites. We love coffee syrups. I am surprised that my husband and I didn’t go into sugar comas last winter, because we drink way more coffee, tea, and hot chocolate when it’s cold.

      You should try it! An after school treat 🙂 Hahaha

    Yum! I’m not a coffee drinker so I’ll have to try this out. Thanks for sharing!


  • Elizabeth Mayberry | August 20, 2014 | Reply

    I love these! I order them at coffee shops all the time if I am not feeling the coffee mood (like afternoons!)


  • Megan Walker | August 23, 2014 | Reply

    This sounds so yummy! I’m not particularly a fan of Earl Grey…do you think it could be made with other varieties of tea?


    • Sarah | August 24, 2014 | Reply

      I was thinking about trying that, actually! Both my mom and I don’t like Earl Grey, but we like London Fogs. I think adding the vanilla and cinnamon alters the taste completely!
