Why do they call it a London Fog?
One of our favorite tea lattes, the London Fog has one of those origin stories we wonder about. As the warm milk hit the black Earl Grey tea it created a cloudy plume, turning the color of the fog-laden London afternoon and thus the name was born. (See recipe below to make yours at home)
