As you can tell, this post isn’t about this:
So during the week I go to a coffee shop in the morning to kill an hour before work and while there buy a cup of Earl Grey tea.
I drank so many that I had enough to get any drink free! I asked the barista what she recommended and they said a London Fog- Earl Grey tea with Vanilla and heated, foamy milk. I tried it and LOVED it!
I had to have more of it. So I decided to make it myself.
- Tea Kettle/Teapot
- Earl Grey Tea (I use loose leaf but you can do bagged)
- Vanilla Creamer
- Milk Frothier
- Sugar (optional)
- Tall Glass
- Tea Mug or Teacup
- Put your kettle or teapot on and heat the water.
- Prepare your loose leaf tea (one teaspoon per cup of water). [I typically drink out of a two cup tea mug.]
- When water is ready pour in mug over tea infuser or tea bag. (Tea should steep no more than three minutes.)
- When tea is steeping prepare the milk. This is something that might take a few trials until you find your perfect taste. I typically take 1/4 cup of milk and 1/4 cup of Vanilla creamer and pour both into the tall glass.
- Using the frothier, whisk the milk mixture until it is nice and airy. If you don’t have a frothier you can use a tall glass jar and shake it up.
- Heat the milk mixture in the microwave for a minute.
- When the tea has steeped, remove it from the mug and add sugar (if needed) and foamy milk mixture.
- Drink & enjoy!
It was delicious, and cheaper than forking over four dollars every time you wished to have it. Delicious!
