Earl Grey Tea Latte 

I am a person that hates to be cold, but one benefit of the change in seasons is that colder weather means warm drinks! While I love a good hot chocolate, coffee, or mulled wine, I’m actually a big fan of tea as well. Making a tea latte on a chilly morning is a great way to enjoy the sweater weather and shake up your morning drink routine.

See our guide to making your own latte at home (without an espresso maker).Earl Grey Tea Latte, serves one

1 cup water
2 Earl Grey tea bags
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
cinnamon for garnish

Bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Add in two tea bags and let steep for about 7 minutes. Pour tea concentrate into your mug and stir in your sugar and vanilla extract.To heat and froth your milk, use a heater and frother, a handheld milk frother (after you warm the milk in a saucepan first), or you can use the old “jar in the microwave” trick as well to get the same effect. However you get there, pour your warm milk into your tea and then spoon on the milk froth and finish with a dash of cinnamon. That’s my camel teapot named Bruce by the way (he also comes in gold now apparently)—it always makes me happy to pour tea out of his mouth! I love the taste of Earl Grey tea in the morning, but this really takes it to the next level with the steamed milk and the hint of vanilla and cinnamon. Glass coffee mugs are also a great choice for drinks like this so you can see the pretty foam layer on top. It’s the perfect drink to go with a donut or a scone as well since it’s not too sweet either. If you haven’t had a tea latte before, now’s the time to try it! I think that not only will you like it, but you’ll like it a latte. 😉 xo. Laura

  • Yum! This Earl Grey tea latte sounds so delicious! This is going to be one of my go-to drinks this winter so that I don’t drink as much coffee. 😀

  • I tried this recipe this morning (but with Trader Joe’s Chai Tea instead of Earl Grey). It was yummy. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • This is one of my very favorite drinks! I work as a barista at the local farmer’s market on Fridays and we call this a London Fog. Sometimes I make it with lavender + vanilla which is really good too!

  • I’m a huge London Fog fan 🙂 I’ve never tried it with Cinnamon! will test tomorrow

  • I’m usually more of a coffee person but this sounds interesting, I think I’ll give it a try to change this up a bit.
    Also, thanks for the link to the microwave tip! I had no idea it was possible to make milk foam so easily.

  • Mmm…I love cold weather just for this reason. I’m looking forward to tasting this seasons hot drinks and this one will definitely be one for my list!

  • That teapot is ADORBS!!!! I don’t like tea with milk but I need to say that the teapot is ADORBS!!

    (Also, 7 minutes is a lot, I like my tea very light)

  • I literally made this recipe as soon as you posted it because I was so excited! I didn’t have any vanilla extract but used vanilla almond milk, and it came out SO good! Definitely makes me feel cozy.

    Thanks so much for teaching how to make this at home!

  • “Like it a latter”

    Love me a good pun.

    I got into drinking tea with milk on an exchange year in Finland. And I’ve forgotten about that until now. Will have to add some almond milk to my next cup of tea.

  • You can convince me to do many things, but drinking tea with milk is not one of them!

  • I drink warm drinks even in summer – I can’t stand cold drinks in general. I’m so glad you guys are beginning to post more hot drink recipes. Can’t wait to try them all!
