An Icy Earl Grey Latte

ICE ICE… LATTE

As the temperatures rise, the desire for something cold and refreshing just heightens. And nothing is more inviting on a warm day than a homemade iced tea – natural, delicious, healthy and super easy to make!

To celebrate everything Earl Grey, we have given the popular Earl Grey latte – better known as the delicious ‘London Fogg’ – a little makeover; setting it up perfectly as a gorgeous spring and summer iced tea crowd pleaser.

By definition, lattes are generally made on milk – however, coconut milk is also a delicious alternative and pairs beautifully with vanilla – again, the choice is always yours.

4 Surprising Benefits of Earl Grey – which you may just not know!

  1. Good for Your Teeth: Tea contains very high levels of catechin, an antioxidant that fights oral infections, fluoride is also a natural component of Earl Grey tea.
  2. Digestion: Earl Grey tea has been known to help improve digestion and can aid the digestive process and help relieve painful indigestion, colic and nausea.
  3. Keep You Hydrated: And no, not just because you take it with water; unlike the dehydrating properties of coffee, tea can help you stay hydrated and maintains the body’s fluid balance because of its high potassium content.
  4. Stress Relief: Unlike the effects of coffee, Earl Grey tea can relax and soothe the body, it also has a stress relief effect whilst simultaneously providing the same clarity and focus as coffee.

As the weather warms up – step outside your comfort zone and try an ‘Icy Earl Grey Latte’ for a change. Just remember for a delicious iced tea latte, a strong infusion is a must.
