The We Should Cocoa challenge this month was to combine chocolate and tea in some delicious fashion. Well, how about chocolate tea?
Cocoa nib tea makes a rather slimming alternative to hot cocoa. The smell of chocolate, the taste of chocolate, all without the calories; nibs are so versatile and they hold so much goodness.
Cocoa Nib Tea
1 tbsp cocoa nibs
1 tsp earl grey (i used orange scented oolong but use your favourite)
1. Place the nibs and tea in your mug. Fill your mug with just off the boil water and allow to infuse for 5 mins. Strain and enjoy.
I’ve made a few different combinations. I love using fresh ginger (.5 cm square) or rosemary (7 leaves) and it is so refreshing. I love the scent of this tea. The chocolate taste is not overpowering, just comforting.
