It’s Friday! And we’ve finished remodeling, so I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend full of books and tea. Since we’ve been remodeling, I haven’t read a lot, and I’ve missed it. I’ve started reading The Blade Itself, but I haven’t got very far. I think I’m around 104 pages in. But I will say I’m shocked at how dark it is. I’m a grimdark lover, and this might possibly be the darkest one I’ve read. That being said, I’ve noticed I can only read so much and then I have to put it down and take a break. But I’m hoping to knock out a pretty good chunk of it this weekend, because Babel comes out on Tuesday and I’m so ready to get to it.
While I’m reading this weekend, I can guarantee that I will need a few cups of tea. After the stress of the last couple of weeks, I’m ready for all the cozy feelings. I’ve been obsessed with one particular tea recipe, and I thought I’d take a minute to share it with ya’ll. It’s my take on a London Fog. It’s not completely traditional, but it’s been so, so good.
My London Fog Recipe
- 2 Teavana Earl Grey Creme Tea Bags
- 8 oz of boiling water
- 1/3 cup of steamed milk (Sometimes I add more. I like a really milky tea.)
- Sugar to taste
- One pump of Torani Hazelnut Syrup
- Steep two tea bags in the boiling water for five minutes.
- Sweeten the tea.
- Add hazelnut syrup.
- Top with steamed milk.
The steamed milk in this recipe is important. I didn’t take the time to steam it this morning and it had a totally different taste. And obviously, the hazelnut syrup is optional. I just enjoy the toasty flavor that it adds. But that’s been my go-to tea recipe for a while now. I hope it makes you feel as cozy as it does me. And I hope you have an awesome weekend!
