It's a harmonious blend of peppermint mocha black tea, rich hot cocoa, and velvety frothed milk, perfect for cozy nights in or uplifting afternoons. If you want to know how to make tea-infused hot chocolate, this is a great recipe to try!

Cupid's Cuppa Tea-Infused Hot Chocolate

Ingredients: Equipment:
  1. In a small saucepan, carefully warm your chosen milk over low to medium heat. Think gentle simmer, not a rolling boil.

  2. While your milk warms, prepare your tea infusion. Place a heaping teaspoon of Peppermint Mocha black tea into a filter bag. As your milk approaches a low simmer, carefully add the tea-filled filter bag.

  3. Remove the pan from heat, cover it, and let the tea steep for 5 minutes. Allow the flavors to meld and infuse the milk with the essence of the black tea. Patience is key, dear tea friend!

  4. After steeping, remove the tea bag and stir in your desired amount of Comfort Cocoa Hot Cocoa Mix. Remember, the mix is already sweetened, so adjust to your taste preference. Start small and add more if needed.

  5. Time for the fun part! Grab your milk frother and plunge it into the warm milk, bringing it to life. Gently tilt your mug as you froth, creating a thick and creamy microfoam. Think smooth and velvety, not stiff peaks. Avoid overheating the milk, as this can affect the texture.

A glass mug of tea-infused cocoa and frothed oat milk sits on a counter next to a Latte Whisk, a bag of Peppermint Mocha loose tea, and a tin of Comfort Cocoa Mix. Pink roses can be seen in the background, and pink rose petals are scattered on the table.

Sweet Swaps & Flavor Experiences

  • Chocolate Cravings: For a more intense chocolate experience, drizzle chocolate syrup or sprinkle cocoa powder on top for an extra decadent touch.

  • Tea Time Twists: Not a fan of peppermint mocha? Swap the tea for other flavors that resonate with you. We love the warmth of chai or the zing of fruity options like raspberry or pomegranate. Go ahead, make it your own!

  • Milk Matchmaker: While oat milk creates the creamiest froth, feel free to experiment with your favorite milk alternative. Almond, soy, or even coconut milk can all work wonders in this recipe.

We hope you (and your sweetie, if you're frothing for two) enjoy your Cupid's Cuppa!
