London Fog (From Scratch)

London Fog (From Scratch) created by Baby Kato

An inexpensive and surprisingly easy take on the coffeehouse treat made with everyday ingredients and everyday utensils. Tastes quite creamy with 2% milk, but is also good with 1%. To make the vanilla syrup extra fancy, leave a vanilla pod in 4 cups of white sugar overnight and substitute 1 cup of this for the regular sugar. Another note - the syrup's consistency is just a bit thicker than water. Once you have this syrup on hand, it only takes about 10 minutes to prepare the drink.

  • To make syrup: Bring water and sugar to boil over medium-high heat, stirring often. Simmer 10 minutes on medium-low heat. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Cool to room temperature. (It is also fine if it is still warm when you use it) Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
  • Boil 2 cups water and steep Earl Grey teabags for 3 minutes (or longer for a very strong flavour) in teapot.
  • While tea is steeping, heat milk on medium-high heat, whisking often, until quite frothy (takes about 3 minutes).
  • Spoon 2 tablespoons vanilla syrup into each mug.
  • Pour 1 cup tea and 1/2 cup frothy milk into each mug.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg, if desired. Enjoy!

    This was a really nice drink to enjoy on a cool evening. I very much enjoyed the flavor combination of the bergamot from the Earl Grey and the vanilla. The milk made it very smooth and creamy, perfect for a cup to enjoy before bed.

    This is certainly a new, interesting & very delicious way to enjoy a cup of tea! I like my tea a bit strong, so made sure I steeped it for almost 5 minutes! Really loved the flavor combo & will be making this one again, for sure! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]
