A spicy hot drink for tea lovers.
Even tea drinkers need a hearty and frothy Christmas hot drink! I’m not a coffee drinker, and I try to stay away from sugary drinks – if you’re the same you’ll love this London Fog with a twist!
A good cup of Earl Grey tea every day is a must for me, I usually just have it with a dash of milk but around this time of year it’s nice to have something a little heartier, something that shouts Christmas! This is a good old London Fog with a spicy latte twist and I love it.
If you drink Earl Grey you probably have all the ingredients on hand and it only takes about 8 minutes to whip these up. I used a manual milk frother but you can skip this step if you don’t have one…your London Fog will still taste great.

- 1 cup boiling water
- 1 - 2 Earl Grey tea bags
- 1 cup hot milk (not boiled)
- ½ tsp vanilla essence
- ¼ tsp mixed spice
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 - 2 tsp honey
- Pour boiling water over the tea bag or tea bags, vanilla essence, mixed spice and cinnamon in a measuring jug and leave to steep for 3 - 5 minutes depending on how strong you like your tea.
- Heat milk in the microwave for about 1½ minutes, watch to make sure that it doesn’t boil.
- Place milk in a frother and froth it up (if you don’t have one just skip this step - it doesn’t make a difference to the flavour!) then stir in the honey.
- Pour the tea into your mugs or tea cups then pour in the milk, distributing the foam evenly between the two cups or mugs.
