Are you ever craving a sophisticated tea that seamlessly goes with your rainy day aesthetic? London fog lattes are the perfect drink for this. Homemade whipped foam brings this recipe to another level of deliciousness, and the best part is it only takes about seven minutes to make! The instructions below detail two ways to make this tea, one with loose leaf and one with a teabag. If you want a little bit of extra energy, add a shot of espresso.

Yield: 1 serving

Homemade Whipped Foam Ingredients

2-4 oz heavy whipping cream, depending on how milky you like your tea

Approximately ½ tsp of vanilla extract

Tea Bag Ingredients

1 bag of London fog tea OR

1 bag of earl grey and 1 bag of English breakfast tea

8 oz boiling water

1 shot of espresso (optional)

Loose Leaf Ingredients

1 teaspoon London fog tea blend

8 oz boiling water

1 shot of espresso (optional)


1. Brew the tea and let steep for 3-5 minutes. If the tea is not sweet enough, adding honey is a great way to sweeten it.

2. In a Tupperware container, add the heavy whipping cream and vanilla extract. Make sure that the container has enough room for the cream to double in size.

3. Shake the container vigorously for 3-4 minutes. The longer you shake, the stiffer the whipped foam will be. The foam is done whipping when the container no longer makes a sloshing liquid sound.

4. Remove the tea bag or steeping container and pour the foam over your tea. Make sure your tea isn’t scalding because the cream will curdle.
