London fog tea is perfect for cold days
What’s your favorite drink to have this winter? Are you more of a tea or coffee person?
Whatever you like and whatever you crave, you’re going to love this London fog drink! It’s perfect for a cold day when it’s snowing outside and all you can think of is a warm drink that’s a little bit fancy. Now, the name might feel fancy and sound like a lot of work, but you can put this soul soother together in 10 minutes!
How does London fog tea latte taste?
It has a classic taste of Earl Grey tea, very royal in my opinion, complimented by the delicate flavor of lavender. I love how fragrant lavender is! The addition of steamed milk balances the flavors and makes the drink less strong over all. With the addition of the sweetener, this drink has the combination flavor of earthiness and sweetness, cozy and comforting.
It’s so easy to make this drink and once you make it for the first time, you just can’t stop having it every day! It’s that good. Very smooth, velvety and soul warming!
As it’s the new year and we like to watch our sugar intake, we used Truvia Natural Sweetener, which is a zero-calorie sweetener born from the leaves of the stevia plant, to make this tasty drink. ¾ teaspoon of Truvia Natural Sweetener Spoonable (or one packet) provides the same sweetness as two teaspoons of sugar.
What I love about Truvia Natural Sweetener is that it’s versatile. It’s is easy-to-use and is easily incorporated into your favorite simple recipes. Truvia Natural Sweetener mixes so well with this tea and provide the right amount of sweetness to make this drink very enjoyable.
How to make London fog tea latte?
It’s quite simple to make London fog recipe. Start with brewing some Earl Grey tea and dried lavender using boiling water. You can find dried lavender online or at spice shops. The brewed tea must be strong as later on it will be mixed with steamed milk. Once the tea is brewed, add the Truvia Natural Sweetener and stir until dissolved.
Next, make the frothy steamed milk. Heat milk in the saucepan and once it’s hot (not boiling) pour it into a blender and blend on high for 2 minutes. Strain the tea and discard the lavender. Divide it among two glasses and top with the steamed milk. London fog latte is best served hot.
You can also make London fog tea latte with steamed milk without making it frothy. Just heat it in the microwave or in a saucepan over medium heat and once it’s warm, add it to the brewed tea and lavender.
Enjoy making this delicious latte at home!
