The next time you want something warm and creamy, forget your usual cup of joe and try this Starbucks London fog tea latte instead.

It’s wonderfully floral with such a unique array of flavors from the Earl Gray tea.

Starbucks London Fog Tea Latte Copy Recipe

Starbucks London fog tea latte is a milky drink that’s about half hot milk and half Earl Grey tea. So you get notes of bergamot and lavender along with a touch of vanilla for warmth.

Depending on which Earl Grey you get, it can be woodsy, floral, earthy, sweet, citrusy, or all of the above.

And the black tea base ensures you get a nice kick of caffeine to get you throught the day.

You’ll likely need a sweetener for this. And while you can use regular sugar or your choice of artificial sugar, I recommend simple syrup.

You’ll find a recipe for standard simple syrup here or a recipe for sugar-free simple syrup here.

Both of these recipes can easily be turned into flavored syrup. Just add vanilla, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, etc. Easy peasy!
