The Holidays & Earl Grey Hot Chocolate Mix

Thursday 28, 2017

During the holiday season we curl up next to the fire with friends and family. We make hot chocolate, tea, coffee, eggnog, and hot cider to keep the cold away. Hot chocolate has an interesting, long history like tea. It began in Mexico and South America where cocoa beans are grown and was used to treat stomach and liver diseases before reaching popularity as a comfort food.

When we came across a recipe for Earl Grey hot chocolate we thought it would be an interesting combination. We used our Earl Grey Supreme which is a blend of Ceylon tea, bergamot, and orange peel. Our own version of the recipe for the Earl grey hot chocolate mix is below, based on this recipe from We loved the orange and chocolate flavors!
