London Fog is a luxurious combination of Earl Grey Blue Flower tea, steamed milk and vanilla.
We made this wintry warmer in the office and it was a huge hit! It's really simple to make at home and tastes sooooo good! Definitely a great way to surprise any visitors this Christmas!
2 tsp Earl Grey Blue Flower
1/2 cup of boiling water
1 cup of milk (regular/almond/ coconut)
1tsp Vanilla syrup or good quality vanilla extract
Bring water to the boil and steep the tea for five minutes in a half cup of hot water. Then strain the tea leaves out.
While you're waiting for the tea to steep, set a small saucepan of milk on the hob over medium heat. Don't allow it to boil. Whisk the milk for about five minutes, until it's hot and frothy "for a nice fog-like effect". We used the milk frother on our coffee machine but heating the milk on the hob will have a similar effect.
Next, add a half cup of milk to the tea and stir in your vanilla syrup/ extract and enjoy!
This is a great 'pick-me-up'. Bergamot has a natural boosting effect on your mood, so brilliant for a grey, winter day!
