Coffee is my best buddy most days. It's my greatest friend during that nasty afternoon slump when I REALLY want to take a nap, but I can't because I either have work to do, a house to tidy, and / or some toddlers to play with. Lately however, I've found a new drink that rivals my DIY coffee latte: a maple London Fog. OH MY! I've always wanted to try making a London Fog (it's essentially an Earl Grey tea latte), and when I tried adding in some maple syrup it was extremely tasty. The verdict? I'm going to be drinking this every day too! It's an especially lovely drink for Fall. It's fragrant and rich. Ready to make your own?
- ½ cup of strongly brewed Earl Grey tea
- ¼ cup milk
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- handheld milk frother (affiliate link)
Make sure your tea's nice and strong and that there's lots of room left in your mug for milk.
Mix together the milk, syrup and the vanilla and heat them for a minute in the microwave.
Froth the milk mixture with your handheld frother (affiliate link) for a few seconds until it's nice and foamy.
Pour the foamed milk into your tea.

This looks so nummy! I love chai tea, and this is a nice variation. Great video, and I love your measuring cup!
Looks very good and now I am obsessed with the measuring cup. Where did you find that gem?
Easy to learn from here. By the ways do you have any related article how to make matcha latte?

Anything that froths the milk should work just fine 🙂

Thanks Petra! I didn't actually know until last fall what a London Fog was either, so you're not alone! LOL! Now it is one of my favourite ways to drink tea....
Do you know where that mug is from? I received one as a gift a while back and it just broke a couple weeks ago. 😭 I came here for the maple London Fog recipe but had to ask about your mug!!
