The leaves are falling, the holidays are looming, and the most wonderful time of the year can almost be the most stressful. If you’re anything like us, sometimes you need a reminder to slow down and smell the cocoa. While tea may be our obvious drink of choice, we can’t deny the sweet satisfaction that accompanies that first sip of warm cocoa. We’ve decided to give this cold weather classic a Sloane spin, and what better way to do this than with a tea infusion! The perfect pairing: Our Cocoa Chai Chai, a rich masala based tea featuring whole green cardamom, ginger, cinnamon and clove, topped with sumptuous Brazilian cocoa nibs. The result: A sweet and spicy treat we’re sure you’ll make over and over again.
This is what you’ll need:
1 cup of milk (or combine milk and half and half for a creamier cup)
4 oz of milk chocolate (we used Soul Chocolate)
2 tbsp of Sloane Tea Cocoa Chai Chai loose leaf tea
1 Sloane Tea Filter (or a tea infuser of your choosing)
Directions:1. To begin, place milk over medium heat. Whisk occasionally and remove from heat once hot.
2. Scoop 1 teaspoon of Cocoa Chai Chai into your Sloane Tea Filter (or infuser). Steep in milk to taste. We suggest 5-6 minutes for optimal flavour.
3. While tea is steeping, melt Soul Chocolate over medium heat. Stir frequently until evenly melted and chocolate is smooth. To avoid hardening, be sure to remove from heat once melted
4. Mix chocolate into tea milk blend until consistent.
5. Serve hot and enjoy!
