This couldn’t be simpler or more delicious—instead of using water to make hot chocolate, use brewed tea. You’ll find that you need less hot chocolate or cocoa than usual, but you actually get a richer, more gourmet flavour, because the tea provides a delightful flavour that compliments the chocolate.
The result is a better tasting hot chocolate, with less sugar, fat & calories. These are wonderful as alternatives to dessert or as cosy drink anytime you want a pick-me-up, or find yourself craving a treat.
Make your first one using our recommended proportions of tea to hot chocolate or cocoa & then adjust according to your preference.
Dissolve 1 tablespoon hot chocolate powder in a cup of brewed tea. Or mix brewed tea with equal parts hot cocoa. For an adult version, add 1-2 oz vodka, whiskey, tequila or rum.
There are many great tea & hot chocolate combinations. Try a classic combination such as mint & hot chocolate with our WESTCOAST PEPPERMINT or Allergy & Hay Fever Defense teas. For a lighter mint, spearmint note, combine ANGELWATER or CASABLANCA with hot chocolate.
For an irresistible drink that tastes like dessert in a teacup, mix SOUR CHERRY with hot chocolate.
True chocoholics simply must try teas that already contain chocolate and vanilla beans, for an added layer of incredible richness – CHOCOLATE HUG or VANILLA PLANTATION will transport you to a chocolatey heaven!
