Iced London Fog Tea Latte: Vegan Recipe

This homemade Iced London Fog Latte tastes fantastic, and, luckily, it’s easy to make it at home, so why not try it out.

The recipe I’m about to share with you is, basically, a Starbucks copycat.

The London Fog Latte is made with earl grey and lavender tea, milk, and, if prepared at Starbucks – vanilla syrup.

In this post, you will find out how to make the iced version effortlessly.

I usually opt for dairy-free beverages, which is why this recipe is vegan.

Of course, you can make adjustments to the ingredients I recommend and make sure the DIY iced latte fits your personal preferences.

Keep in mind that the London fog contains caffeine – around 40 mg per serving, as it’s made with Earl Grey tea (black tea flavored with bergamot oil). In terms of calories, this Vegan Iced tea Latte contains 120 kcal.

Now that we’ve cleared this out, let’s dive into the essential part of this post.


  • Earl Grey Lavender Cold Brew Tea: 4 fl. oz. or 120 ml.

    Instead of steeping the tea in hot water, I use my cold brew earl grey lavender tea, prepared in advance.

    The process of making a cold brew batch is pretty much effortless. I used 2 teabags of earl grey tea, and 2 teaspoons of lavender tea for 16.5 fl. oz. or 480 ml of water.

    A tea bag should generally be steeped in 8 fl. oz. (240 ml) of water. I used a jar that holds double the amount of water, hence the two teabags and two teaspoons of lavender loose leaf tea.

    Here’s how to make earl grey lavender cold brew tea for London Fog lattes:

    1. Pour the lavender tea into room-temperature water and add the teabags of earl grey tea. Make sure the loose leaf tea is covered with water.
    2. Seal with a lid and place in the fridge. Let it steep for 6 to 12 hours.
    3. Remove the teabags and run the tea through a strainer.

    I make around 4 iced lattes with 16.5 oz of cold brew.

    You can make a larger batch and use it throughout the week whenever you feel like having an iced London Fog. The earl grey lavender cold brew tea is a great alternative to the store-bought London Fog concentrate, which many people use when preparing this type of latte at home.

    You can make the cold brew stronger by increasing the number of teabags you use for the same amount of water.

    With all being said, it’s very convenient to use the earl grey lavender cold brew tea when making an Iced London Fog Latte.

    That’s why I highly recommend it if you are to have such an iced drink daily.

    By following this method of preparation you will save both time and money.

  • Almond Milk: 4 fl. oz. or 120 ml.

    I like using unsweetened almond milk.

    Nevertheless, you can make your homemade latte with whatever type of milk you desire.

    It’s not a bad idea to use plant-based milk flavored with Vanilla. Especially if you don’t have vanilla extract or vanilla syrup at hand.
  • Vanilla Syrup: 2 tablespoons.

    The London fog latte at Starbucks is sweetened with vanilla syrup. The vanilla flavor compliments all of the other recipe ingredients nicely, so I highly recommend incorporating it in the making of your DIY iced tea latte.

    I use a Vanilla syrup by Monin, which you can check out on Amazon by clicking here.

    I’m quite happy with its taste and level of sweetness.

    It contains around 50 kcal per tablespoon. I use 2 tablespoons per serving.

    This recipe component is the most calorie-dense in my iced latte. A tablespoon would also be sufficient to flavor and sweeten your homemade beverage.

    If you want to lower the number of calories your Iced Earl Grey Tea Latte contains significantly, you can also get a sugar-free coffee syrup flavored with vanilla.

    Of course, using vanilla extract or vanilla-flavored plant-based milk is also an option, so feel free to use these alternatives, if you don’t have any vanilla syrup at home.

    You can also make your vegan London Fog Iced Latte with maple syrup. Two tablespoons would be sufficient to sweeten your homemade latte. So if you don’t have vanilla, feel free to use maple syrup instead. If you do so, I still recommend adding a few drops of vanilla extract.
  • Ice Cubes.

To make an iced London fog latte, do the following:

I use a battery-operated drink mixer, to mix and froth the milk. This device is very convenient to use and it’s perfect for making homemade lattes. You can click here to check out such a drink mixer on Amazon.

To top it off I like adding a bit of extra milk foam, as seen on the following photo:

*I make my own London Fog cold brew tea by steeping a teabag of Earl Grey tea and a teaspoon of dried lavender flowers in 8 fl. oz. (240 ml) of cold water overnight. If you want to make a concentrate, use more tea for the same amount of water. In case you are to make Iced London Fog lattes daily, you can make a larger batch and use a portion of the Earl Grey Lavender cold brew for every latte. It's very convenient to do so.

*In case you use maple syrup for sweetening, I recommend adding half a teaspoon of vanilla extract, as the vanilla flavor compliments all of the other recipe components excellently. If you don't have Vanilla Syrup, using vanilla-flavored almond milk is also an option.
