I’d never heard of a London Fog drink until I tried the PUL recipe. And so now whenever I take a break from coffee and flat whites I always make London Fog lattes. I am English and love tea.

Oooh so lovely to hear, Linzi, thank you!

Fantastic recipe. I’d never get another London fog from starbucks. Want to congratulate the entire team of pickuplimes for putting together this wonderful website. Love how it has everything from nutritional info to portion modifications and added bonus is the easy click-on links to Youtube videos. Amazing work!

This really was so easy to make and the taste was as good as any London Fog at the coffee
Shops. I know it’s warm these days but I needed something warm after a long travel and this hit the spot. Thank you, Pick Up Limes!

PUL Team - May 31, 2022, 10:57 p.m.

A huge compliment, Phison, thank YOU 😃

After a rainy day, I did some meal prep in the evening. When I was done, my kids and husband were asleep. There was a big fat book waiting for me to start reading. So I decided to try this London fog and it was absolutely perfect for the situation, curled up on the couch with a book while it rained outside. The caffeine kept me awake though and I slept fairly late. Although it could've been the books fault. I'll have to try it again with rooibos tonight. You know, for science.

PUL Team - May 30, 2022, 4:06 p.m.

Ooo sounds lovely, Suluhu, we're glad it was enjoyed! We hope tonight is a bit more restful 😃

So delicious! I used my favorite creamy oat milk instead of soy. Perfect for this snowy day here in Japan. I will definitely make this again..

PUL Team - March 23, 2022, 5:19 a.m.

Mmm sounds lovely, Lily! Sending an abundance of love to Japan ✨

I’ve been wanting to try a London Fog for some time, so it was such a pleasant surprise to find that they were so simple to make! It was super comforting - I’ll definitely use this recipe again!

PUL Team - Jan. 18, 2022, 1:18 a.m.

So thrilled the London fog was enjoyed, Mary-Kate, enjoy!

I’m team coffee, but I can die for that tea! Thank you ❤️

Kelly - July 27, 2021, 4:43 p.m.

Simple and calming. Love it with Earl Grey Rooibos to avoid late night caffeine!

PUL Team - July 29, 2021, 1:55 a.m.

Mmm a delicious idea! Thank you, Kelly 😍

Joy - July 25, 2021, 7:07 p.m.

Tried this recipe a few years ago and it quickly became my favourite! Delicious, feels like a hug in a mug ;)

PUL Team - July 27, 2021, 5:37 p.m.

Gotta love a hug in a mug 🥰 Thank you for the review, Joy!

Jenni H. - July 25, 2021, 4:47 a.m.

I'm a die-hard coffee drinker. Tea is nice but doesn't comfort my soul. That being said, London Fogs are cozy rainy days, fuzzy blankets, and a good novel all wrapped up in a finger-warming mug of joy. A perfect afternoon pick me up. This is such a good recipe.

PUL Team - July 27, 2021, 12:54 a.m.

Aw you're too sweet, Jenni, so glad you enjoyed it :D

Clémentine - July 10, 2021, 1:03 a.m.

Very soothing and comforting on a rainy afternoon :) Not the biggest fan of Earl Grey so I usually use a plain black tea !

Katherine Broberg - July 9, 2021, 8:21 p.m.

My husband’s favorite of your cozy drinks. He’ll make it for himself at least once a week.

Casey - July 9, 2021, 4:06 a.m.

Love this one right here! I was living under a rock before just drinking earl grey tea with honey NEVER AGAIN! It's London Fog from here on out!

PUL Team - July 13, 2021, 4:15 a.m.

A massive thank you for the review, Casey! We're so happy you've joined team London Fog 😎

Louise - May 23, 2021, 12:11 a.m.

Seriously delicious. And so easy to make, too!

PUL Team - May 23, 2021, 12:42 a.m.

Woohoo! So happy to hear, Louise 🤗
