There are oodles of reasons why I love loose leaf teas. They are way fresher than anything you’ll find in packages and they make way less waste. My favoruite reason for being all over these loose leaf teas is that I can mix and match and make up my very own custom brews. They’re also great to throw into non-tea things that go with tea – like chocolate. Chocolate matcha peppermint patties for the win!
Chocolate treats can be incredibly nourishing for us. Based on the ingredients we choose, we can actually start to consume the most amazing chocolates and have them also work to heal us! So if we take:
- raw, super powered honey full of enzymes and B-vitamins
- a load of anti-bacterial/viral/fungal coconut oil and
- antioxidant powered raw cacao
and then fill that with matcha and mint infused love – we’re talking about a powerhouse multi-vitamin in the form of chocolate!
You love it, I know!
Matcha is a finely ground type of green tea that takes weeks of preparation before the leaves are even harvested. This is like the caviar of the tea world. Most often traditionally consumed by whisking it into warm water, I love the goodness mixed into recipes! This is a potent antioxidant powerhouse, with a great little natural kick and amazing rich green tea flavour. A little goes a long way.
I want to start to introduce you to all the uses for these loose leaf teas and we’re starting now with my Matcha Peppermint Patties.
And if you’re into the matcha-mint combo, you’ll definitely want to try this dairy-free Matcha Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream too!Print
