Chocolate Tea



Tea is the second-most consumed beverage in the whole world. Every culture has its own unique customs involved with tea. Basically Tea is an aromatic beverage commonly prepared by pouring boiling water over the fresh or dried tea leaves. These days a varieties of tea people are enjoying which may be either hot or even cold, also taste sweet or salty as well. Salty tea is a unique tea one can have from the Kashmiri cuisine as Noon Chai / Sheer Chai which has a color of Pink and is the traditional beverage from that cuisine.


In summers instead of having hot beverage, one can thoroughly enjoy the cold ones like any flavored iced tea. I have already shared an iced tea recipe as Minty Mango Iced Tea. Well, today's recipe is all about a hot beverage flavored with chocolate as Chocolate Tea. This is a delicious tea with a hint of chocolate flavor along with cinnamon powder and cardamom powder too. The sweet factor here I used honey. So I added after preparing the tea just during serving. If using sugar as sweetener then do add along with all the ingredients into the pan while on stove top.


So are you a tea addicted ? If yes, then this different kind of hot beverage'll surely steal your heart. One thing has to keep in mind while preparing the tea here is the cocoa powder should not be added more than mentioned in the ingredients list. Otherwise that will spoil the whole taste of the tea. Some chocolate shavings or choco chips can be added for extra chocolaty in the beverage. During a rainy or winter days particularly one needs at least a cup of tea. As the rainy time is going on so try this Chocolate Tea with some cookies or even tea cakes.
