Cornish Mist

May 17, 2020

Back in October Adam and I went on a road trip around Cornwall. One day it was super rainy, because it was October after all. Desperate to get out of the rain we dashed into this cute café and ordered a couple of drinks. This is where I found my love for a Cornish Mist.

St. Ives

St. Ives is a small fishing village on the Atlantic coast of North Cornwall. This was the third stop of our fourth full day road tripping around Cornwall. The weather wasn’t great on this day,  meaning walking the coastal path wasn’t an option. So we opted to walk around a few of the towns.

We got the bus down into the town of St. Ives, not wanting to drench ourselves with no real place to dry off. After walking round for 15 minutes we dipped into this café that appeared to be relatively empty. I’m always up for trying something different and when I spotted a Cornish Mist in the Specialties section I was hooked.

We’ve been going to Cornwall for over 10 years but I had never see this before! I thoroughly enjoyed it! So obviously when I got home, I tried to recreate it myself. Here’s the recipe:


1 Earl Grey Tea Bag
300ml Milk
1 shot Vanilla Syrup


  1. Steam the milk until piping hot or alternatively, heat the milk in the microwave.
  2. In a warmed mug add the shot of vanilla and the tea bag.
  3. Pour over the hot milk. This takes a little longer than brewing with water. As a result, allow to brew for 3-4 minutes.
  4. Remove the tea bag and enjoy!
