Here's a simple recipe to make this delightful drink:
- 2 cups of strongly brewed black tea (use your favorite type of black tea, like Fog Earl Grey or Beach House Teas English Breakfast)
- 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons of sugar (adjust to taste)
- 1 cup of milk (you can use dairy or non-dairy milk)
- 2 cups of ice cubes
- Whipped cream (optional)
- Chocolate shavings or chocolate chips for garnish (optional)
Start by brewing a strong cup of black tea. You can do this by using 2 tea bags or 2 teaspoons of loose tea leaves in 2 cups of hot water. Let it steep for 3-5 minutes, then remove the tea bags or strain the leaves. Allow the tea to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate it until it's cold.
In a blender, combine the cold tea, cocoa powder, sugar, milk, and ice cubes. You can adjust the amount of sugar to suit your taste. If you prefer a thicker consistency, you can add more ice cubes.
Blend the mixture until it's smooth and all the ingredients are well combined. Taste the mixture and adjust the sweetness if needed by adding more sugar.
Pour the frozen hot chocolate into glasses. Top with whipped cream if desired.
Garnish with chocolate shavings or chocolate chips for an extra touch of indulgence.
Serve immediately and enjoy your frozen hot chocolate made with tea!
