  • Grind cacao nibs.
    Use a mini food processor to get nibs into smaller pieces.
  • Boil water.
    Boil water on the stovetop or in an electric kettle (set it to 208°F). Use filtered water for a better tasting tea.
  • Combine cacao nibs, black tea, peppermint tea, brown sugar, and hot water in a teapot.
  • Cover teapot and steep for 5 minutes.
  • Heat milk.
    While you're waiting for the tea to steep, make the frothed milk. 
    Heat milk on the stovetop on low until little bubbles start to form along the sides.
  • Pour warm milk into a French press and pump plunger.
    With the lid on, move the plunger up and down until milk doubles in volume. Set aside.
  • Strain solids and pour hot tea into a cup. 
  • Pour frothed milk on top.
    Optional: Garnish with fresh mint leaves or chocolate shavings from a chocolate bar.


Use an electric milk frother which heats and froths milk at the same time.
