The other day, it was a particularly warm day, we were inspired by one of our customers to make a cold version of our Peppermint Patty Tea. Until now it was most popular as a hot winter time tea because of the peppermint bringing thoughts of Christmas trees and candy canes. When our customer mentioned they drink it iced it put this winter tea into a new perspective. We decided to give it a try and the results were delicious! We hope you will agree.
BLENDED PEPEERMINT PATTY LATTE
1/4 cup Loose Leaf Peppermint Patty Tea
2 cups filtered water
2 cups ice
1/2 cup of milk (we used kefir for a probiotic kick!)
4-5 TBL raw honey (We love our local raw honey from Bee Line Honey Co.)
Add your 2 cups of filtered water to your tea kettle or pot and bring to a boil. Place your Loose Leaf Peppermint Patty Tea in a French Press (or use other steeping device) and add boiling water. Let steep for about 5-7 minutes. Once your tea has steeped strain into a blender (Vitamix or Blendtec works best). Add remaining ingredients starting with ice (it will help cool the tea down for blending) and blend until ice is chipped to your liking. Serve in a pretty glass, top with some cocoa nibs and fresh mint. Sip and enjoy!
