How to make a London Fog - cozy tea latte recipe

London fog recipe / how to make

If you love the flavor of Earl Grey tea, you'll love the taste of a London Fog. It tastes like a sweet vanilla latte, with savory hints of floral black tea swirled through it. Earl Grey tea gets its signature flavor from the addition of bergamot, which is a bitter citrus fruit found all over Europe.


  • Earl Grey loose tea or tea sachet (we suggest teas below)
  • Brown sugar
    Regular white sugar works too.
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Filtered water / or tap
  • Milk
    Any kind you prefer — I like oat milk.
  • French press or electric milk frother, mixer or whisk 
  • Glass teapot with strainer
  • Electric kettle / water heater 
    To heat up water easily and quickly.

     Fun Fact : This famous tea latte got its start on the West Coast

    A regular customer named Mary Loria was pregnant and could no longer drink coffee, so she asked for an alternative to her daily brew and received a concoction of steamed milk with Earl Grey tea and a little vanilla, which became commonly known as a London Fog
