black vanilla tea

Floral Earl Grey Hot Chocolate

  • 250ml milk
  • 5tsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4tsp rosewater
  • 1/4tsp vanilla extract
  • 1tsp honey
  • tiny pinch salt
  • 1 earl grey tea bag, steeped for three minutes in the hot chocolate

Verdict - the flavours work very well together. The rosewater is the most distinctive flavour but it’s balanced out by the earl grey background flavour so that it’s not so strong. The vanilla is just kinda there making things better as usual. Yes this was good.

Hey mama!! How ya doin'? Great, I hope? I just wanted to ask what Levi's favorite tea was? My personal favorite is silver needle white tea :3 And what's yours?? We always like to know about you, mama :) Have a great day!! :D

Levi’s favorite is black tea. Mine is black vanilla milk tea

Tea Witch day 1: pear/vanilla black tea.

So, my brother’s fiancé gave me a lovely present the other day: a tea calendar, with one type of loose-leaf tea per day. Look at it - it’s wonderful!

I decided that not only am I going to drink all of them, I’m also going to try to draw a little witch personification of each flavour! It’s going to be a challenge, but I’ll do my best to do all 24!

I’ve been wanting to do Tea Witches for a while, just for fun (I like tea+I like witches and magic = awesome!) and this calendar is an excellent excuse!

Stay warm with a delicious and hot drink this winter. Some ideas of what you may want to try are:

❄Yujacha or citron tea
❄Ginger and lemon tea
❄Tulsi turmeric and ginger tea
❄Darjeeling tea
❄Strawberry and vanilla flavored black tea
❄Chai tea
❄Thai milk tea
❄Roobios tea
❄Oolong tea
❄Peppermint tea
❄Matcha green tea
❄Apple cider
❄Hot chocolate
❄Hot vanilla and honey milk (use any milk substitute if needed, almond milk is my favorite substitute)
❄Coffee or Chicory
❄Homemade instant Russian tea
▫It’s easy to put together. All you need is:

1 jar of orange Tang drink mix
1 ½ c. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
½ c. lemonade drink mix
½ c. instant tea mix
1 tsp. ground cloves

Mix all these dry ingredients together and store in a glass jar. To serve, pour 2-3 teaspoons into a mug of hot water and stir.

comtessedebussy  asked:

Jasmine Tea, Vanilla Latte, Rose Hip Tea - lmao all of those sound like literally the last thing you'd drink so here's a more "you" drink: Hot Chocolate (spiked with fireball, of course).

Jasmine Tea : If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

Well, Paris seems quite interesting because of all the art museums there I could spend days in. I’d also love to go hiking in like the Adirondacks. I mean I’d be quite happy with a vacation to anywhere right about now.   

Vanilla Latte : Board games or drinking games?

Clearly the answer is drunk board games. 

Rose Hip Tea : Describe your first kiss

High school, was with a group of friends and I don’t even remember how it started but this one guy that I found annoying was like “lol there’s no way you’d kiss (friend that was sitting beside me)”, and I think we both wanted to piss him off so I totally went for it. Yeah. 

Hot Chocolate : Are you an affectionate person?

I mean it’s complicated? I can be. I will say that I’m not an unaffectionate person. 


John Watson Cookies

Recipe cobbled together from Quaker Oats’ “Vanishing Oatmeal Cookies” and Nestle’s “Oatmeal Scotchies” and then tweaked to be more Johnly (extra unexpected spices and actual tea–which happens to look like gunpowder).

½ cup plus 6 tablespoons butter, softened
¾ cup firmly packed brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 tsps vanilla extract
1-½ cups all-purpose flour
2 to 4 teabags of vanilla black tea (or tea of your choosing)
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsps ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
½ tsp salt
3 cups oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
1 cup butterscotch chips (or more)

Heat oven to 350°F.
In large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed of electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.
In medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt; cut open tea bags and sprinkle in tea and mix well.
Add the flour/spices mixture to the butter/sugar mixture and combine.
Add oats and butterscotch chips and combine.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. (I flatten the balls just a little but you do what you want). Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown (on the shorter side for chewy cookies, longer side for crunchy cookies). Cool 2 minutes on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.                                                  


Harry Potter House inspired bath bombs! 


-Gryffindor: a spicy vanilla base with middle notes of clove and cinnamon and rounded out with almond, pepper and a touch of sweet.

-Slytherin: Tobacco and black tea are the dominate notes with hints of fruit and spice.

-Hufflepuff: Cinnamon Buns!

-Ravenclaw: Vanilla rosewood, black tea, birchwood and cedar, with floral and leather notes. This is my take on a library scent!


All bath bombs are made with citric acid, baking soda, kaolin clay, grapeseed oil, fragrance oil, and witch hazel.
