Hot chocolate with TEA!?!? Yes.
I just reblogged a post that reminded me that not only is hot chocolate tea a thing - but it’s a great way to flavor plain hot chocolate!
Here’s my recipe:
- ½ mug heated milk
- ½ mug appropriate tea temp water
- *for richer flavor, use 2/3 mug milk and 1/3 mug water
- 1 teabag (black, herbal, and rooibos teas work best)
- hot chocolate mix
- *depending on how sweet you like it, you may want to add sugar or even honey
First brew your chosen tea STRONG, it has to compete with chocolate. I usually double or triple my brew time as long as the tea doesn’t suffer. While that’s brewing, heat your milk and add your plain hot chocolate - remember you want the tea to be done brewing at the same time as you’re mixing the hot chocolate. Remove the bag and slowly combine the tea and hot chocolate.
