London Fog Latte

Last week for our Tablescape Thursday party, I shared this beautiful table setting below created by Phyllis who blogs at The Relevant Tea Leaf.

Phyllis prepared a wonderful meal for her dinner party, including a delicious Earl Grey Tea Cake. (A printable recipe for the Earl Grey Tea Cake is available here: Earl Grey Tea Cake.)

Phyllis made each of her guests a delicious London Fog Latte to go along with their cake. Yum! Several folks have asked for Phyllis’s recipes so in today’s post I’m sharing a printable recipe for the latte, as graciously provided by Phyllis.

Earl Grey Tea Cake and London Fog Latte


Note: I’ll be sharing the recipe for the Minnesota Wild Rice Soup Phyllis served in a separate post either later today or tomorrow so that each recipe will be easy to find separately under the “RECIPES” category at the top of the blog whenever you need them.

Thanks so much to Phyllis for sharing her wonderful recipes! Be sure to check out her blog  The Relevant Tea Leaf for additional recipes and tips for entertaining.

Below, you’ll find a printable version for making a London Fog Latte.

London Fog Latte

Cuisine: Beverage
Author: Phyllis (The Relevant Tea Leaf Blog)


  • 1 c. 8 oz. strongly-brewed Earl Grey tea (1 heaping tsp. loose-leaf Earl Grey tea steeped for 4-5 minutes.) An Earl Grey tea bag can be used instead of loose-leaf tea
  • 1/2 tsp dried culinary lavender
  • 1/2 c. steamed milk – 2% or whole If you don’t have a steamer, just heat milk in saucepan over medium-low heat until milk is simmering but NOT boiling. It's very important to not to let the milk boil.
  • 1 Tbsp. granulated sugar More or less according to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract


  • Brew Earl Grey tea and lavender together
  • Remove and strain out steeped tea leaves and lavender
  • Stir in remaining ingredients until combined
  • Pour into cup/mug
  • Top with frothed half-and-half (My frother has a line on the inside that marks where milk should not exceed, so I pour the half and half up to that line. The amount may vary with different frothers.)
  • Serve immediately


For a stronger tea flavor add more tea rather than steeping longer.

    I just made the London Fog tea because I just happened to have some lavender left from an iced tea recipe last summer. Such a nice mid-morning treat!

  2. Yum – I’m going to try that today – it sounds fabulous! I’m so glad you shared Phyllis’ website, I’ve already gotten a ton of inspiration there. Thanks to both of you, and Happy Tuesday!
