A few days ago, Andrew Sullivan wrote about how the London Fog Tea Latte from Starbucks reminded him of the cuppa his mum used to make for him when he was a child. It sounded pretty good, so I stopped off for one on my way home from work that night.
I'm always looking for new cookie ideas, and this drink, with its Earl Grey tea, steamed milk, and vanilla syrup seemed like a good flavor combo to try.
I'm no stranger to tea-based cookiese. In fact, my Dark Earl Grey Cookies rank in my top five favorite recipes. Looks like I've got some experimenting to do!
Oh...random, I know...but check out R.E.M's "Find the River." It must be the only song ever to include the word bergamot--that's the citrus in Earl Gray tea--in its lyrics.
