Chocolate Coconut Tea Blend

Coconut Chocolate Tea Blend

The first thing I do in the morning is make a cup of tea. Alex isn’t even allowed to talk to me until I have my mug of tea in one hand and bowl of Rice Krispies in the other hand. I also get a bit grumpy when Eamon has the day off on Sky News and I have to watch Mark Longhurst. I like Stephen Dixon though. He’s nice to look at first thing in the morning.

Enough about news readers. I drink so much tea that I try to mix it up and come up with some creative blends. Drinking plain black tea all the time just doesn’t do it for me.

I also like my tea nice and strong. I used a strong Assam tea this time as it goes beautifully with milk. I added some toasted coconut and cocoa nibs (which can be bought online or at Waitrose). The chocolate flavor of the nibs is a fantastic compliment to the Assam tea.
