A Foggy Tea

Sometimes you just have to brew a good cup of tea. 
In fact, my kids and I regularly have tea time about 3 or 4 in the afternoon.
I love the time we all spend around the stove creating the perfect cup of tea.
I fell upon a delightful tea recipe recently.
It's called a London Fog.
A drink rich and creamy, perfect for Fall days.
The recipe is made to my own liking and has just a smidge of half and half to enhance the flavor.
It has been the perfect compliment to breakfast and a go-to drink for the car.
You just have to try it...especially on a foggy day :)

London Fog

Brew a 1 1/2 cups of Earl Grey Tea {let it steep for at least 3 minutes.}
2 tsp. half and half
Sweetener of choice {I use stevia}
1/4 tsp. vanilla
Fill to the top with almond milk

Stir and enjoy hot!

We are having our first nights of low 40's and your tea sounds delightful. Watching a crackling fire and sipping tea is on the agenda for this evening. thanks for the recipe!!

I have had "London Fog" tea many times at Starbucks; mostly in the Starbucks Cafe inside Barnes and Noble. It's made there with vanilla syrup (you can get sugar free) added to Earl Gray tea and then the steamed milk on top. Though I have to have soy or coconut milk which the cafe inside Barnes and Noble has because I have an issue with dairy. Absolute heaven! Yum. Now I feel like going to Starbucks to get one. And I get the venti size. LOL

One of my sons loves a London Fog.
We've been having rainy, foggy, cool days.

Hi Julia, I absolutely love tea! Earl Grey, Jasmine, Black tea, green tea, herbal teas. I added a poll at the upper right hand column on my blog asking if people prefer coffee or tea. Please feel free to vote, if you would like, and you are more than welcome to visit my blog and leave a comment. You have a lovely blog. Warm greetings from Montreal, Canada. :)
