A London Fog Latte is a special treat if you’re feeling a bit fancy. This recipe can be done with any type of tea, and really marries together the flavors we love. With vanilla paste and vanilla extract (and your favorite tea), this drink feels extra special but is so easy to make that it might be part of your every morning routine before you know it!
- 5 mins
- 1 servings
- 1/2 cup of hot water
- 1/2 cup of steamed milk of choice
- 1 tea bag or 1-2tsp of loose Earl Grey Tea
- 1/2tsp of Rodelle Vanilla Paste
- 1/4tsp of Rodelle Vanilla Extract
- Optional: 1/4tsp of Dried Lavender
- Optional: 1-2 tsp sugar of choice
- Boil water over the stovetop in a pan or use an electric kettle, or even the Keurig.
- Once water is boiling, turn off stove and pour ½ cup of hot water in a mug, add tea bag, vanilla EXTRACT, and dried lavender in a tea infuser. Let this steep for 5-7min or base time off tea bag instructions.
- While the tea, vanilla extract, and lavender are steeping - combine the milk and vanilla paste, then steam it. If you don't have a milk steamer, here are a few other ways to prep the milk for the latte.
Frother Wand - pour the milk and vanilla paste in a microwaveable glass container and warm up for 30 seconds, stir it, and then warm for another 15-30 seconds. Ensure to watch it as you don't want the milk to start boiling over or burn. Next, take it out of the microwave and use the milk frother by slowly going up and down in the glass until it's desired frothiness.
Stovetop - Pour milk and vanilla paste in a saucepan and put on low/low-medium heat all the while stirring until the temperature reaches 150°F or 1-5min (depends on stovetop). You do not want it to boil heavily or it will burn. It won't be as frothy as with a frother or steamer but it will still taste delicious!
- Once milk is steamed - pour earl grey, vanilla extract, and lavender (strained) water into a mug. Add sugar of choice. Lastly, add the steamed milk on top.
- For a stronger tea flavor, use 2 tea bags or 3-4 tsp of loose earl grey tea.
- Some other teas we recommend trying this out with: Chamomile, Rose, Hibiscus, Peppermint, Vanilla Chai, Matcha, Orange Turmeric, and Mint Green Tea.
- For dairy milk substitutes we highly recommend trying out Oat milk, Almond Milk, or Soy Milk as it will have more of a steamed milk consistency. Other milk substitutes might be too watery or produce less foam.
