Chocolate Tea + Mint Recipe
Most choco-mint tea recipes use a form of mint tea as their base. But you can also start with chocolate tea, and add mint.
Did you know that you could brew chocolate tea? Some chocolate teas mix tea with cocoa powder, while others are made by mixing roasted, winnowed cacao shells with regular black tea. The cacao shells give the black tea a warm, chocolatey flavor, but with fewer calories than a beverage like hot chocolate.
After brewing a glass of your favorite brand of chocolate tea, add one or two drops of food-grade peppermint oil, or peppermint extract, and voila! A delicious choco-mint tea recipe.
For another festive twist on this recipe, after brewing a class of chocolate tea, add a candy cane.
