Are you a fan of creamy, aromatic, and comforting beverages? Try brewing your own London Fog Latte! This delightful drink combines the richness of Earl Grey tea with the velvety texture of steamed milk, creating a harmonious blend of flavors. In this post, we'll guide you through the steps to make a perfect London Fog Latte in the comfort of your own home.
What You'll Need
Before we dive into the recipe, let's gather the necessary ingredients:
- 1 TBSP of Santa Muerte Loose Leaf Tea Blend
- 1 cup of water
- 1 cup of milk (dairy or plant-based)
- 2 tablespoons of vanilla syrup
Step 1: Brew the Tea
Start by boiling the water and steeping the Earl Grey for about 3-5 minutes. This will allow the tea to release its distinct flavors and aromas. If you prefer a stronger tea, you can increase the amount of tea used but remember to time it correctly or run the risk of bitter tea.
Step 2: Prepare the Milk
While the tea is steeping, heat the milk in a small saucepan over medium heat. Be careful not to let it boil. If you have a milk frother, you can use it to create a creamy foam. Alternatively, you can whisk the milk vigorously until it becomes frothy.
Step 3: Combine the Tea and Milk
Once the tea is ready, remove the tea bags and pour the hot tea into a mug. Add the vanilla syrup and stir well to combine. Then, slowly pour the frothy milk into the mug, holding back the foam with a spoon. Leave some room at the top for the foam.
Step 4: Add a Touch of Lavender
Don't worry about this step, our blend has you covered! Santa Muerte has lavender in its bend naturally so you are good to go! It elevates the flavor profile of your London Fog Latte and you can even sprinkle a pinch of lavender buds on top of the foam. Lavender adds a subtle floral note that complements the bergamot flavor of the Earl Grey tea.
Step 5: Enjoy!
Now that your London Fog Latte is ready, take a moment to savor the delightful combination of flavors and aromas. The creamy milk, fragrant tea, and hint of vanilla create a comforting and indulgent experience. Sit back, relax, and enjoy your homemade London Fog Latte.
With just a few simple steps, you can recreate the magic of a London Fog Latte in your own kitchen. Experiment with different variations by adding a sprinkle of cinnamon or a drizzle of honey. The possibilities are endless.
