I’ve been obsessed with London Fog’s for years. A London Fog is a combination of Earl Grey tea, vanilla, sugar and steamed milk. My version uses my Lavender Earl Grey Tea instead of plain Earl Grey, I'm super stoked about how it turned out. I paired this latte with my favorite banana bread overnight oats, but it’s the perfect compliment to just about any breakfast or on its own in the afternoon
Iced Lavender London Fog
1 cup of sugar
1/4 cup dried lavender
1/4 of a cup Lavender Earl Grey Tea
*Optional - 1 drop purple food color
2 cups oat milk (this can be substituted for any milk, It will still be good but it will change the flavor)
For the syrup
Boil 1 cup water, sugar, lavender in a pot for 6 minutes. Turn down heat. Let strep for 5 more minutes. Strain out leaves, pour into a jar and allow syrup to cool.
• Optional - add desired amount of purple food color - start with 1 drop
For the tea
• In the same pot bring 3 cups of water and 1/4 of a cup of Lavender Earl Grey Tea to a boil, once boiled turn down heart and allow to steep for 5 minutes. Strain and pour into a separate jar
