London Fog Latte

As much as I love my coffee, I don’t know just how I’ve lasted this far without discovering this particular concoction. I’ve never been a huge fan of Earl Grey tea; call me crazy, but it’s always tasted like stale potpourri. However, something about the sweet and creamy vanilla with an almost floral tint is growing on me.

I found an amazing loose leaf earl grey creme tea to use; I just throw it in a mug to brew, and strain out the tea leaves later.

Brew it hearty, brew it strong.

Prep a mug with a heaping teaspoon of brown sugar…

Warm the milk on the stove or microwave and add a couple drops of vanilla extract.
