Black Tea Oatmeal to Jumpstart Your Day

June 16, 2016

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!


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.


● 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!)


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!
