london fog popsicles are a delightful riff on a classic drink!
So I still had Earl Grey tea bags left over, even after those truffles. What to do?
Well it IS popsicle season so I thought I’d try my hand at riffing on the Starbucks version of a London Fog.
A London Fog is a tea-based drink made from Earl Grey tea, frothed milk (the “fog”) and vanilla syrup. Starbucks gives it a lavender twist and I was all in for that!
I eliminated the milk, because – well, you know me and milk – and made a lavender-infused vanilla syrup for the base.
These were SO easy to make, refreshing, different and absolutely delicious!

1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
1 vanilla bean, halved and scraped or 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon culinary grade lavender
4 Earl Grey tea bags steeped in 2 cups boiled water, cooled to room temperature
Bring the sugar and 1 cup of water to a boil in a small sauce pan, stirring till sugar is dissolved. Let boil for one minute, then remove from heat and add the vanilla bean seeds (or extract) and lavender. Stir, cover and let cool completely.
Stir the syrup and tea together in a spouted container and fill your popsicle molds. Freeze till slushy (1 – 2 hours), insert popsicle sticks and freeze overnight.
Remove pops from molds by running briefly under hot water; transfer to a foil-lined baking sheet to re-set for a bit; keep frozen till ready to serve.
