Per Alicia’s suggestion and an enjoyable one at the B&N yesterday, I decided to try to make a London Fog with A&D’s Earl Grey tonight after a yummy dinner of Indian food. I knew it was late but it sounded good and seemed like it would go good after Indian.

I made the Earl Grey as I normally would and added heated milk, vanilla extract, and sugar. I didn’t think it tasted right at first. I could taste everything, but it was off. Too little Earl Grey, too much milk. As it cooled, it got better. I think next time I could steep the tea much stronger and use less milk. But I liked it and there will be a next time.

1 cup Earl Grey tea, 1/4 cup heated milk, 1/8 tsp vanilla extract, 1 rounded tsp sugar.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec

Wow, a cup of tea? (Did I read that right?)

I don’t think loose tea was meant in this case. :)

__Morgana__

Whew! That would have been a lot of tea! Lol.

Alicia ~ It was a good call. =)

Morgana ~ Yeah, 1 cup of steeped Earl Grey tea (from 1 tsp leaves in 1 cup of 205° F water for 5 min). NOT 1 cup of leaves.

Bio

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
