London fog tea has grabbed attention since it has been added to Starbucks Corporation’s menu, a global coffee company and a coffee house chain located in Seattle, Washington.
This specialty tea is made from earl grey tea, which is a special kind of brew containing black tea and bergamot flavouring. You can bring variations to London Fog tea by adding flavoured syrups, such as the vanilla syrup, in it.
In fact, Starbucks Corporation uses vanilla syrup to make their London fog tea.
You can also make this amazing tea latte at home by using few simple ingredients, a domestic espresso machine and steamer.
Make sure that you use the amount of earl grey tea accurately and cook it to just the right temperature, because if it is over cooked, the taste will become bitter and will not be worthy of drinking.
This simple recipe makes one drink but you can always increase the amount of ingredients according to the requirement.
London fog tea is best served with some cookies or biscuits.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Earl grey tea: 8 ounces
Milk: 4 ounces
Vanilla syrup: 3 tablespoon
Boiling water: 1/2 cup
Steam the Milk
Grab a steamer and steam the hot milk for few minutes until frothy and foamy. If you do not have a steamer at home, you can heat the milk in microwave and then whisk it until it becomes fizzing. That will however be time consuming.
Pour in vanilla syrup
Now add 3 tablespoons of vanilla syrup in the frothy steamed milk and whisk them well.
Add in earl grey tea
Gently pour 8 ounces of earl grey tea into the prepared vanilla-milk mixture. Take a hand whisk and mix all the ingredients properly.
Serve the tea
Your hot and frothy earl grey tea latte is all set. You can consume it directly or serve it with your favourite cookies, biscuits or snacks.
