Tea is my favourite drink all year round. It doesn’t matter if it’s summer or winter- I start my day with tea, and end it with tea as well. And that’s not such a bad thing, because tea is actually pretty healthy! Black tea (my favourite) is full of anti-oxidants, low in calories and decreases your risk for cardiovascular disease. Sounds great, right?
Alokozay Tea sources their tea directly from Ceylon in Sri Lanka, and they only use the top leaves of the tea plant for the highest quality teas. I love that Alokozay Teas are available in tea bags, as well as in loose leaf. I was able to order several types of tea online and have them shipped to me.

Cardamom, Black Currant, Vanilla, Orange and Cinnamon are a few of the black teas that I ordered. I had the super tough job of sampling a variety of Alokozay teas to figure out my favourites. Earl Grey, Vanilla, Moroccan Mint and Cardamon came out as the winners, with the Earl Grey and Vanilla tea in first.

Today I’m going to share how to make my favourite tea latte: London Fog…with a twist!

Double Vanilla London Fog

Traditionally, a London Fog is made with just Earl Grey, but I wanted to experiment. The Earl Grey is a robust bergamot citrus, and I wanted to see how the teas worked together with the warm notes of vanilla in the Vanilla tea. Hint: Pretty well!
