It has been raining and snowing for months. In fact this has been one of the wettest and snowiest winters on record in the Seattle area. And I am done with it!
This week's Latte is in honor of another cold damp yet wonderful place to visit – London!
We were in London a couple of years ago and I drank a ton of tea. Every afternoon we tried out different tea style and I even bought a really cool teapot that I adore and use.
One of our local Seattle baristas recommended it for me recently after I asked for heavy cream for my tea. It is a little sweater and has a nice richness to it that is more latte than tea.
Let me know what you think!
London Fog Latte
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 2 Earl Grey teabags
- 1 cup milk
- 4 tablespoons vanilla-flavored syrup
- Fill with steamed milk
- Sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg
1. Bring your teapot to a boil if you are going old school and use a stovetop. I actually just use the hot water function on my espresso machine. Give yourself about a cup and a half of hot water. Add in 2 ear grey teabags for a really solid flavor that won't get lost when you add in the milk.
2. Let steep for 3 minutes.
3. Steam milk in pitcher. Add your vanilla syrup to your tea cup.
4. Pour steamed milk into serving cup and top with with cinnamon or nutmeg
