London Fog

 Winter is upon us and there is nothing better than a warm cup of tea. It has been many many years since I last had a London Fog,  not the coat but the amazing Earl Grey tea and milk. There are many variations of this drink but for ours we will just be adding vanilla extract and sugar. Yeah that is all, just five ingredients.

Start by boiling some water.  I love the Hamilton Beach electric kettle to boil the water. This kettle will bring the water to a boil in no time. If you do not have a kettle you can use a pot on your stovetop. Pour the hot water into a mug and add an Earl Grey tea bag. Allow to steep for five minutes.

While the tea is steeping begin heating your milk, vanilla extract and sugar over medium heat. Do not allow the milk to come to a boil. Did I say not to bring the milk to a boil? Don’t do it. I love using this hand frother for the  milk and it works like a wonder. It just takes a little bit of elbow grease.

Remove the tea bag then add the milk mixture and there you go. You just made a London Fog tea and saved 7 dollars if you would have went to a high priced coffee shop.

Remember that you can always adjust the sweetness of this drink. More or less…it’s up to you. Heck, if you have had a really hard day you could even add a bit of bourbon. I’m not going to judge.
