It’s time to combine two of the best things about the morning: tea with breakfast. Now you can enjoy the most important meal of the day even more!

Recipe:

You can adapt this recipe to work with any hot breakfast cereal. In this case we’ve kept it simple, and stuck by a quick oat method. If you decide to adapt it, simply keep in mind for every cup of milk, you will want a teaspoon of tea. You can also easily substitute the dairy for water, or any vegan dairy alternative of your choice.

Ingredients:

● 1 teaspoon Earl Grey, Earl Grey Lavender, or Earl Grey Creme black teas. If you prefer, any black tea will suffice.

● 8 ounces of milk

● ½ cup quick oats

● Pinch of salt

● Tasty garnishes – sliced almonds, banana, chia seeds, segmented oranges, cherries, walnuts (the sky’s the limit!)

Directions:

Bring the milk to a boil – be careful not to scorch it. Place the tea in with an infuser or disposable tea bag, and let steep 5 minutes. Alternatively, submerge the tea leaves fully. Remove the tea infuser or strain the tea leaves off.

Add a pinch of salt to the milk. Bring back up to a boil. Add the quick oats and bring the temperature down to a simmer and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and cover. Let stand for 2 to 3 minutes.

Garnish with your favorite munchies and enjoy!
