Go Dutch with an Amsterdam Fog at Van Gogh’s Eeterie

To provide a pick-me-up and break my caffeinated habit, I turned to my favorite tea indulgence: A hot Amsterdam Fog.

Wake up. Throw some coffee in a travel mug. Drive to work. Zip through the morning. And then… face a mid-afternoon caffeine withdrawal before you make your way to the office kitchen for a second cup of joe. Repeat daily for your entire adult life. I had been feeling a little tired of the daily coffee doldrums, even though I still adore the taste of a hot brewed cup. To provide a pick-me-up and break my caffeinated habit, I turned to my favorite tea indulgence: A hot London Fog. It’s comfort in a cup. That’s why I was extra-excited to try Van Gogh’s Eeterie’s (334 E. Commercial St., Springfield, 417-344-0085) take on this delicious, classic drink, the Amsterdam Fog. This pick-me-up is made with lavender Earl Gray tea, steamed milk and a surprise ingredient that provides a lovely color: alfalfa chlorophyll. It turns the drink, which is served in a clear glass mug, a playful shade of teal. But the flavor is still everything a London Fog fan would hope it would be: slightly sweet but still 100-percent delightful.
