Oolong White-Hot Chocolate
Makes 4 servings
- 2 tsp oolong tea leaves. We recommend Organic Shui Xian Oolong.
- 4 cups milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 8 oz. white chocolate, chopped into small pieces
- Whipped cream or marshmallows for garnish
In a saucepan, bring the milk to a simmer and add the tea leaves. Let the tea steep for 6-7 minutes, and then strain out the leaves.
Pour the infused milk back into the saucepan and add in the vanilla extract, heavy cream, and white chocolate. Stir over medium-low heat until everything is combined and the mixture comes to a simmer. Don't let it come to a boil.
Remove from heat and serve immediately. Add a little whipped cream on top or garnish with marshmallows and enjoy!
