Lisa from A Day in the Kitchen
whole milk, or almond milk or nut milk for dairy free
peppermint tea bags
strings and tags cut off
70% dark chocolate
Chop chocolate into fine pieces. Set aside.
Heat milk in a pot over low heat until small bubbles begin to form. Stir frequently, or use a whisk to create a froth
Remove pot from heat and add tea bags. Let steep for 5-10 minutes depending on taste preference.
Remove tea bags and place pot of milk back on stove over low heat, whisking with a whisk to build up the foam again, if desired.
Add chopped chocolate to the hot milk.
Stir with a whisk until chocolate is completely melted. Remove from heat.
Pour into your favorite mug and sprinkle some cocoa onto the tea, if desired.
For a non-dairy milk option, use a nut milk like almond milk or coconut milk.
I found 70% dark chocolate complemented the peppermint tea the best. However, feel free to use whatever grade of chocolate you prefer.
Adjust the amount of chocolate to more or less depending on your taste.
Adjust the number of peppermint tea bags depending on the strength of peppermint flavor and your personal taste.
For a more indulgent tea, top with whipped cream!
