Earl Grey Tea with London Fog
This is a great dairy-free drink and a good alternative to using creamer or milk in your tea. The oat "fog" creates a thickness that almost gives this tea a consistency of hot chocolate. It sounds really strange, but if you are a tea lover, it is a recipe you have to try out!
1 c. water
1/2 c. rolled oats
2 Tbs. agave nectar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. double strength brewed Earl Grey Tea
Blend the water and oats together and then let them sit for five minutes to soak. Add the agave and vanilla and process until as smooth as possible (the grains shouldn't be recognizable at this point). Place a piece of cheesecloth on top of a large glass measuring cup or small bowl. Hold the cheesecloth with your non dominant hand and pour 1/3 to half of the liquid mixture into it. Squeeze the liquid into the measuring cup and continue with the remaining liquid. Discard the cheesecloth. Pour the tea into two tea cups. Slowly pour the "fog" (aka, oatmeal liquid) into the tea slowly.
