Grab your mugs and let us brew some tea. You already know the weather has been so shifty of late. Like choose whether to be sunny or cold dammit! We need to know how to dress for the weather…smh.
Now that I am basically working from home, I have had time to try out something that I don’t take on the regular….tea. I am more of a coffee gal myself but why not test out other things. Also do a bit of experimenting with a few things in the kitchen. One of the outcomes of my several experiments was Chocolate Cinnamon Tea. I didn’t use regular chocolate, I used Dairyland Chocolate Spread.
The spread is semi sweet so it doesn’t overpower the taste of the cinnamon and cardamom. Also, do not add too much chocolate spread, you will barely feel the taste of the spices. As much as I am not a great fan of tea, I really like with masala! But….one that I have not made. Is it just me or does someone enjoy a meal when it’s made by someone else? I like it since I have had so much of my cooking, having a meal made by someone else is interesting because everyone has a unique cooking method so you get to have the meal in their own rendition.
Just to clarify, this is not Hot Chocolate, it’s tea. Today’s weather was so crappy that I made a whole flask of it and had it with all my meals. It kept me so warm I almost dozed of and became unproductive 😂😂 Some of the warm drinks to keep you warm because we can’t be taking cold drinks right now, because we are avoiding colds, are my Cinnamon Tea and Cinnamon Hot Chocolate.
You may have noticed that my drinks have cinnamon. It is my go to for warm drinks!
