London Fog Tea Latte – A lightly sweetened earl grey tea latte made with just a few simple ingredients in 10 minutes.
London Fog Tea Latte
Earl grey tea is one of my favorite drinks. Ever since I tried my first cup, I was hooked. When I learned that you could turn it into a tea latte much like a chai tea latte, I was hooked. It’s lightly sweetened and it’s so cozy to drink. This recipe makes about two servings but you can always double or triple it if you want to share it with friends or family. It’s a favorite of mine so I’m sure you will love it!
Common Questions About Making a London Fog
What is a london fog?
A london fog is a tea latte made with earl grey tea bags, vanilla simple syrup, and milk. While it is called a latte, it contains no coffee, only tea. It is also referred to as an earl grey tea latte.

No, you could make the same recipe and refrigerate it until cold and serve it over ice so that it is an iced london fog latte or you could blend it with vanilla ice cream to make it a london fog frappuccino.
What kind of sweetener do you put in a london fog?
I make mine with vanilla simple syrup but you could also use honey, lavender simple syrup, or even maple syrup as the sweetener.
Can I add anything else to a london fog latte?
You can add a pinch of lavender to the tea and water as it is steeping or use a bit of lavender simple syrup as the sweetener if you want lavender flavors in this drink (which I suggest). Alternatively, you can always get a fun variety of earl grey tea bags (or loose leaf) that have additional flavors in it.

These will each impact the taste a bit so I usually try to use the most neutral tasting non-dairy milk. Depending on which milk you choose, it may or may not froth well. So far, I have only tested frothing soy milk and it worked great using an immersion blender.
