Simplified Vegan London Fog: Updated
I love London Fog teas but when I went searching for a recipe I could not help but notice how complicated or time consuming the recipes are out there. I don't have a lot of time and there are only a few basic elements to this so here is a quick and easy way to make a London Fog. You need a milk frother for this recipe.
Since posting this recipe, I have refined it to make it a bit more perfect. Here is the revised version.
What you need:
3/4 cup of water
Earl Grey tea bag
1/2 cup of soy milk
Sugar or alternative, about 1 heaping tsp divided, less if you don't like sweet.
sp vanilla syrup, the kind you put in coffee (optional) 1 tsp
What to do: 1. Heat up 3/4 cup of water in a mug in the microwave for 2 minutes. Add earl grey tea bag, 1/2 tsp of sugar and steep a few minutes. Stir to make sure sugar is mixed.
2. In a separate mug, heat up 1/2 a cup of soymilk in the microwave on high for 1 minute. Add about a 1/2 tsp of sugar to the milk than froth with a milk frother. [Note: If your frother is not getting the job done, try changing the batteries. It can make a big difference.]
3. Remove the teabag from the tea and add a teaspoon of vanilla syrup if you are using it. Stir. 4. Add the soymilk to the tea. I use a spoon to stop the foam from pouring in with the milk then scoop the foam in after to keep it foamy. Enjoy your easy and delicious London Fog!
