When I’m craving that kick of caffeine, but don’t want to go for Starbucks Cold Brew Latte or Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, I always find my way back to ordering a comforting cup of Starbucks London Fog.

And today, I’ll show you how to make your own London Fog right at home!

Let’s start!

What is London Fog?

Starbucks describes its London Fog as a “frothy reinvention” of the classic Earl Grey tea.

Traditionally, a London fog is a tea-based drink that is made by combining Earl Grey tea, milk, and vanilla.

London fogs are typically served hot. But these days, you can find iced London fog at Starbucks and lots of other coffee shops, too!

The main difference between Starbucks London Fog and the traditional London Fog is Starbucks’ use of…dried lavender!

The addition of lavender steeped into the earl grey blend is such a perfect complement that makes Starbucks London Fog a truly luxurious drink to relax into.
