I’m all about flavored iced tea recipes, but when I first heard about chocolate mint tea, I thought whoah, that sounds amazing. But what in the world is chocolate tea?
Answer: it’s tea with cocoa powder in it, plain and simple.
Peppermint iced tea is my all time favorite summer drink, with a tie between hot peppermint tea , and hot chocolate for favorite winter drink. Which makes Chocolate-mint tea pretty much perfect, right? I sure think so!
After trying many different variations, this is my favorite, although you might catch me drinking an all water version now and then, I love the extra body the milk gives this drink.
Chocolate Mint Tea Recipe
- 1 tsp peppermint tea leaves (or one tea bag)
- 1 tsp cocoa powder
- 2–3 tsp honey
- 6 oz hot water
- 6 oz hot milk
- Stir peppermint leaves into hot water and let steep for five minutes. Strain into mug
- Add cocoa powder and honey. I’ve never had any trouble getting cocoa powder to dissolve into hot water, but if you have any doubts, go ahead and combine it with the honey first.
- Stir in milk. For the lactos intolerant, you can sub more water for the milk, or a dairy-free milk such as almond milk.
