Here is a flavorful concoction incorporating two of my favorite things: Chocolate and Tea. With bergamot (orange) scented milk this Earl Gray Hot Cocoa is sure to please any adventurous epicure.
3 cups whole milk
2 Earl Gray tea bags
3 tbs cocoa powder
3 tbs sugar
Between 2 mugs, divide the cocoa powder and sugar evenly. Add a splash of milk to cover dry ingredients and stir to dissolve. This helps incorporate the dry ingredients so they don’t float to the top of the milk.
Heat milk in a saucepan over medium-low heat, whisking occasionally. When warm, place tea bags in and steep for 8 minutes.
Whisk vigorously to create frothy bubbles in the tea-scented milk.
Divide the milk between the two glasses and mix well. Sprinkle with cocoa powder to garnish.
