Recipe: The M.M.LaFleur Lavender Fog
The M.M.LaFleur Lavender Fog is a modern take on a classic London Fog. Here's how to make it at home.
We are turning the winter blues into Provençal lavender tones in our cups at all maman locations. Celebrating M.M.LaFleur’s Founders’ Seven collection and a signature color in their clothing line, warm up with our “M.M.LaFleur Lavender Fog,” a play on the traditional London Fog, prepared with Sloane’s fragrant Earl Grey classic tea, steamed milk, and gently sweetened with Honey Lavender Syrup. Garnish with a sprig of lavender for that extra touch of joie de vivre!
1 Earl Grey tea sachet, or 1 ½ tsp loose Earl Grey tea in a tea ball
½ cup (120 ml) whole milk, or any non-dairy milk
1 tbsp Lavender-Honey Syrup (see below)
1 sprig dried lavender (optional garnish)
1 ⅓ cup honey
¾ cup or 20g dried lavender
2 ½ cups boiling water
Combine all ingredients in a quart container and dissolve. Let the mixture steep for at least 30 minutes. Strain out the lavender. Label and refrigerate for up to two weeks.
- Bring 1 cup (240 ml) of water to a boil, pour over the tea in a mug, and steep for 3–5 minutes, depending on how strong you like your tea. Remove the tea sachet or tea ball.
- Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, warm the milk and Lavender-Honey Syrup until hot to the touch. (If you have an at-home espresso machine, you can add your syrup to the tea first and steam your milk with the steam wand.)
- Add the milk-and-syrup mixture to the mug of tea and enjoy!
