Ohhhhhh, London Fog, how I love you so

28 Feb

For the past week or so, I’ve been listening to a friend at work rant and rave about her new favorite drink, a London Fog. She discovered it when her cousin was Facebook stalking a girl from elementary school and drooling over all her travels (God, who hasn’t done this at some point or another?? Awkward ….).

The world-travler mentioned she had a London Fog in England, and the cousin promptly looked it up. The drink is:

Two parts Earl Gray tea

One part steamed milk

A shot of vanilla

My friend and I went to a café in town that specializes in tea and each ordered one. I got mine with a shot of ginger instead, and let me say: It tastes so good, I’m licking the insides of my mouth just to taste more. It tastes so good, I want to tongue kiss people so they know how amazing it is, but I don’t want them to drink mine. It smells so good, I’m all but neti potting it up.

This is my way of saying: Go to your nearest specialty tea café and get one! Now!!

Note: I just took the last sip. You are no longer invited to lick the inside of my mouth. All that taste is for me now. Go get your own.

    you can get Earl Grey Tea Lattes at Starbucks, and they usually put a bit of vanilla in it (in this case, that’s what they mean when they ask if you want it sweetened or unsweetened)– I think when they were actively marketing them a few years ago they called it a London Fog. It’s funny that you post this now because I’ve kind of been living on them lately 🙂

    As a proud British citizen, I am a huge fan of Earl Grey tea. I’m not sure whether loose leaf Earl Grey tea is easily available in the US but it is particularly lovely when brewed in a nice teapot. Your London Fog, particularly the ginger syrup version, sounds lovely

    I definitely want to try this.

    On a different note, I’m kind of impressed you successfully made a neti pot into a verb….Hahaha

I'd love to hear what you think!
