Cocoa Mint Tea: My perfect winter drink

December 19, 2013
I came about this recipe a few weeks ago, when I was trying to decide between a cup of tea and a cup of Hot cocoa. After deliberating for a while I just thought.. why not mix the two?. LOL and to my surprise it turned out great and I have been drinking it ever since. I enjoy mixing flavours and like trying new things so over the weeks I’ve tried to develop this recipe to be enjoyed by everyone. But seriously who would have thought hot chocolate and tea together lol!  I’ve added a few extra ingredients to this for the best flavours to leave you feeling warm/fuzzy and wanting more;). This will be perfect for those winter days/nights and of course christmassss. Hopefully you guy’s like it Enjoyy xx
Milk (Almond, Soya or Hazelnut) I like Hazelnut the best 😉
Whipped Cream
Cocoa Powder
Tea bag x1
Honey/Brown sugar
– Boil some water in a kettle.
– In a mug add 1 tea bag (Tetley Or PG tips)
– Once the water has boiled pour it in to your mug (just like you’re making normal tea). This time only pour about a quarter of water into the mug. Leave to brew for about 30-40 seconds and then remove the teabag.
Grab another jug and add about 3-4 fresh mint leaves the more the mintier 😉 pour about 3 quarters of extra warm Milk, (Almond or Hazelnut milk great for this) over the mint leaves and leave to brew for about a minute or 2. Remove the leaves once it’s brewed  (you can leave it in if you like) and pour the warm milk into the tea and mix well. Grab your Cocoa powder and add about 1 1/2  to 2 teaspoons to the mixture and mix well.
– You will need about  a pinch of nutmeg and  about 2 pinches of cinnamon, followed by 2 teaspoons of honey or sugarl. You can add extra milk if you want it milkier. Mix well and add your whipped cream on top sprinkle some cinnamon  and enjoyy!! x
