If you’re craving a cool, creamy pick-me-up, I’ve got the perfect alternative to sugary iced coffee. This Earl Grey London Fog is lightly sweet, delicate in flavor, and slightly caffeinated for an energy boost. (However, if you’re trying to cut down on caffeine, here’s an article you might find helpful.)
Earl Grey tea is a black tea flavored with bergamot orange, which is a type of citrus found in Calabria, Italy. Its flavor lies somewhere between a sweet lime and bitter orange.
That vibrant flavor plays beautifully with strong black tea, standing up well to the creamy, dairy-free milk. Dried lavender sets this London Fog apart; a sprig of this flower adds a delicate flavor that makes this latte irresistible.
This drink is cool, creamy, and sweet, thanks to a hint of raw honey. I prefer raw honey for its beneficial enzymes. To preserve those enzymes, you’ll want to stir the honey into the tea when it’s gently warm, but not boiling hot. The aim is to warm the honey enough to mix it in, not cook it.
This London Fog takes less than a minute to put together and will satisfy any craving for an iced, caffeinated beverage, without all the excess sugar and caffeine. Enjoy!
