Do you have milk?

I get asked this a lot and these days I'm generally a 'no milk' person. Milk is always down to personal preference and it can be a great way to change up your regular blends.

When I'm in the mood, one of my favourites is a 'London Fog' Earl Grey Latte. Think refreshing citrus, bold black tea and the delicious combo of honey and vanilla. Sound good? Read on for the recipe!

'London Fog' Earl Grey Latte

Ingredients - Serves 2

  • 2 teaspoons Earl Grey tea (Dapper Duke for sure!)
  • 3/4 cup milk of choice
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Make sure to use a good quality vanilla extract and be aware of fake imitations. The difference in flavour is huge!

Also use a milk that gets a good froth to be creamy and smooth. Cow, oat, coconut - whatever your preference is. Almond sometimes lacks the ability to froth well and you can try adding half a teaspoon of melted coconut oil before frothing to help.

  • Brew Earl Grey tea and divide into two cups
  • Froth your milk, vanilla and honey together in a milk frother or saucepan
  • Add milk mixture evenly to Earl Grey cups
  • Serve immediately
It's as simple as that! The result is a warm, zesty Earl Grey cuppa with a creamy sweetness. If you want an extra twist add 1/2 a teaspoon of dried lavender flowers to the Earl Grey when brewing. Fancy!

Happy brewing,
