Love Earl Grey tea? From sweets to decadent tea lattes, see 17 delicious recipes that are all made with Earl Grey!
Earl Grey Tea
Earl Grey tea is a black tea that’s flavored with bergamot, a citrus fruit from Italy. The black tea is usually Assam or Ceylon.
Since Earl Grey tea contains black tea, there’s caffeine in anything that’s made with Earl Grey.
London Fog is a name for drinks are made with Earl Grey tea, milk, and vanilla. All 3 of those ingredients need to be in the beverage to be called a London Fog.
Earl Grey tea recipes can be made with loose tea, tea sachets, or tea bags. Loose tea tends to be higher in quality than tea sachets or tea bags.
My rule of thumb is to use tea sachets or tea bags when more than 4 ingredients are in the recipe. No need for a pricier loose tea when the other ingredients will dilute the Earl Grey tea flavor.
