seattle fog latte adds spice to a foggy morning

Seattle Fog Latte? Yes, you read that it right. On these foggy fall mornings, we could all use a little spice to get us going. I enjoy the fruity flavor of Earl Gray tea used in a London Fog Latte, but why not make it local with the tea I grew up with called MarketSpice. This tea originated in a small tea and spice shop in Seattle’s world-famous Pike Place Market. Their business was established in 1911 and still resides in its original location today. The original MarketSpice tea is made with black tea, cloves, cinnamon and orange flavorings. A Seattle fog latte has a natural sweetness that allows you go light on any added sweeteners. I bet some pumpkin muffins would go well with this spicy tea.
