The London Fog is my favorite go to latte. I discovered this latte when I toured across the UK many, many years ago. When I got back to America I just went back to coffee. I got the jitters and went back to tea; I haven’t looked back much at all. Now, I MIGHT have a cup of coffee a month. Other than that I will have tea. This is one of the most comforting drinks I make from that trip.
Here’s what makes this London Fog the best recipe I have come up with.
It’s so easy to make and super soothing. I mean, some milk, some tea, some vanilla. Done! Easy, Fast, Quick. This is my favorite version of this latte. I can hear the rain and feel the autumn breeze.
Now just to overly drive my point. 😂I’m not kidding, this is my favorite London Fog and it is the easiest I’ve made to date.
My tips and tricks for the best London Fog:
- Brewing good tea requires good water temperature, proper brewing time, and good quality tea.
- My favorite tea to use for this particular drink is this Stash Earl Grey.
- Whole milk will give you the best flavor, but any milk will work. I froth it with a my French press.
- My absolute favorite syrups are Jordan’s Skinny Mixes. I use this one for this recipe.

- Brew a cup of earl grey tea. My preferred brand is linked in the notes below.Water should be close to 200°F and steeped for 3 to 5 minutes. For more in-depth instructions check out the link in the recipe notes!
- While the tea is brewing, scald and froth your milk. To scald milk just heat it until just before boiling on the stove or in a microwaveYou can use a frother, french press (my method), or beat it with a whisk until foamy.
- Sweeten tea to taste. I use Jordan's Skinny Mixes Vanilla Syurp in mine.
- Pour the frothed milk over the back of a spoon into your cup of tea. Mix well.
- Then spoon out the frothy part of the milk on top of your drink.
