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.

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)
Vanilla Syrup
Sweetener (of your choice)

003 006 010 013 018


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

  • Mmmm this sounds pretty good! I’ve never had one so I may just have to try this lol! Have a good weekend 🙂

  • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

  • Laney

    Sounds like something delicious.

  • yum this sounds amazing! i love earl grey tea so this would be perfect for me!

    • I hope you’ll try it! It’s easy and tastes like dessert!

  • Sounds delicious!

    • 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!

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

  • Megan Walker

    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?

    • 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!
