Are you team Peppermint Hot Chocolate? I can honestly say that I am not a fan. I’m not sure who coined Peppermint Mocha or Cocoa to be the holiday drink, but I am not sold! Let me introduce you to the best Earl Grey Hot Chocolate ever! It is decadent. It is aromatic! And Earl Grey tea infusion gives the old classic hot chocolate a lovely new twist!
It is SO cold outside right now and it’s expected to snow overnight – two whole centimeters! I know right?! Crazy! So imagine yourself on a winter’s night with your coziest socks and a cup of hot cocoa (made from scratch), warming you up!
This tea infused hot chocolate can be easily adapted to different tea flavours like lavender or rooibos. You are not limited to just Earl Grey. I particularly like using these Vanilla Earl Grey loose leaves tea. I love the sweet and floral perfume. This tea has a light almost citrusy flavour with a flowery smooth velvety creamy full body. It is absolutely delicious when enjoyed on its own or paired with dark chocolate!
This Earl Grey Hot Chocoalte is the perfect sweet dessert drink this winter!
Tired of Peppermint Hot Chocolate? So am I, this Earl Grey Hot Chocolate is the best! It is decadent and aromatic! Adding Earl Grey gives it a lovely twist to an old favorite!
