A homemade early grey latte
This Lavender London Fog is easy to make and comes together in just 5 minutes. This recipe is similar to a traditional London Fog but is made with the addition of dried lavender and dried chamomille to give this latte a hint of floral notes.
A London fog is made by combining strongly brewed earl grey tea with frothed milk. The earl grey tea has a rich deep flavour and a slightly creamy texture, making it the perfect tea to whip up into a latte.
The tea and dried flowers are from Mountain Rose Herbs and are completely organic and ethically sourced. They’re dried lavender is culinary grade, so I highly recommend it for this recipe. (Some lavender you may buy in a flower shop is not the best for cooking with.)

Ingredients used in a lavender London Fog
- Earl Grey Tea: This is the base of a London Fog. Earl Grey is a black tea with a nice creamy texture.
- Lavender: Use culinary lavender in this recipe. Lavender can be quite strong in flavour, so you don’t need to add much!
- Chamomille: A light and floral tea, the chamomille adds another dimension of flavour to the latte.
- Cane sugar: Optional if you like it sweet. You can also use any type of sweetener you prefer
- Oat milk: This is the best type of plant-based milk to use for lattes. It tends to be more rich and creamy than almond milk.
How to make a homemade London fog
- Steep the tea ingredients in boiling water. You want to make sure the tea is brewed quite strong.
- In the meantime, steam or froth your favourite kind of milk. I like to use oat milk in this recipe.
- Divide the tea between two mugs then add the steamed milk and some organic cane sugar if you like it sweetened.
Tips for making this recipe perfectly
- Make sure to steep the tea long enough. You want a strongly brewed earl grey tea otherwise you can end up with a London Fog that doesn’t have much flavour.
- If you have a milk frother at home, use it! Frothed milk works best in this recipe. I recommend oat milk which froths well and is extra creamy.
- Start with a small amount of lavender in this latte and add more as you like. Lavender can have a strong flavour.
