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.
