Iced London Fog Latte (Simple & Refreshing)

Iced Lavender Coffee latte

London’s weather is famously dismal, so it’s no surprise warm, cozy tea is a popular beverage. But if you don’t live in London — or you are just tired of regular hot tea — an iced tea latte may be just what you’re looking for!

The iced London Fog Latte is a pleasant twist on the creamy, bergamot-flavored original. By putting together Earl Grey tea with milk, vanilla, and lavender, this drink is unbelievably tasty. Let’s get brewing!

  • Large mason jar (with lid)
  • Straw (optional)


  • 1 Earl Grey tea bag or loose leaf tea
  • 8 ounces filtered water
  • ¼ cup milk any kind
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Simple syrup or agave or honey (to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon dried lavender flowers optional


  • Brew your Earl Grey tea. Pour 8 ounces of boiling water over an Earl Grey tea bag or 1 tablespoon of loose leaf tea. Let steep for at least 7 minutes, or follow the instructions on your tea’s packaging.
  • Remove the tea bag or filter out the tea leaves. Let the tea sit for a few more minutes -- you don’t want it to be hot!
  • Fill your mason jar with ice cubes. Then add the cooled tea, vanilla extract, and milk. Add a spoonful of your favorite sweetener (we like honey) if you’d like. Screw on the lid and shake to thoroughly cool the drink.
  • Take the lid off, sprinkle on a few dried lavender flowers, and throw in a straw if you’d like. That’s it! Your iced London Fog latte is ready to drink.

What is Earl Grey tea?

Earl Grey tea is one of the world’s most popular types of tea. It is a kind of black tea flavored with bergamot, which is a Mediterranean citrus fruit. Earl Grey tea is floral, complex, and lightly caffeinated — and it’s a classic breakfast tea, often served with milk and sugar.

Can you use a different kind of tea?

If you’re not a fan of Earl Grey or you want to skip the caffeine, you can use a different kind of tea leaves. But keep in mind that a London Fog latte made without Earl Grey is a completely different drink! Use a chai blend to make a chai tea latte, or an herbal tea to make a twist on a Starbucks Pink Drink. Try experimenting with your favorite brand of tea — cinnamon is particularly tasty — and see what you think.

Can you make a hot London Fog Latte?

Of course! The London Fog latte is delicious hot and over ice. Try them both and you will see what we mean…
