I woke up this morning craving the creamy citrusy deliciousness of a London Fog. Remembering that last time I had wished the Earl Grey stood out more, I steeped the tea extra long and used a bit more leaf. The result was quite good and I’m not sure what I’d change. I do think a London Fog might be better with a different Earl Grey tea. A&D is very citrusy, but the black tea doesn’t show up much. I think a strong Early Grey with good black tea and citrus taste would work very well.

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

Made as a London Fog, this came out really well.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 8 min or more

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.
