Infused tea hot chocolate

Posted by

I am bringing two of my favorite beverages together tea and hot chocolate. It’s been a while since I last posted anything with tea. Chocolate and cinnamon work beautifully with tea. I used CTC tea from Assam with strong liquor. The spices also do their bit of magic in this delicious drink. 

A decade ago, when I went to Ooty, I got to try a cup of chocolate tea on a roadside tea shop. It tasted like regular tea, but the homemade chocolate truffles served with tea were delicious. I loved the idea of having both chocolate and chai together. After a few failed attempts, I finally found my perfect cup. Here’s sharing this secret to make tea ever so tempting…
