{Caffeine & Dairy Free} Bengal Spice Tea

Now that it's fall here in Colorado, I have been getting bundled up and wanting something toasty warm to curl up with.  I've never been a coffee girl, but I am a hot cocoa connoisseur.  This {Caffeine & Dairy Free} Bengal Spice Tea is the perfect cup of yum!

Are you looking for a less expensive alternative to your morning Starbucks stop?  Or are you trying to decrease your caffeine intake, but still satisfy your daily hot drink habit?  This creamy, hot, delicious tea is the perfect option.  It's easy and quick to make, and a spicy, low sugar, tasty drink.  According to Celestial Seasonings, a Boulder-based operation, the Bengal Spice tea is comprised of: cinnamon, roasted chicory, roasted carob, natural spice and vanilla flavors with other natural flavors, ginger, cardamom, black pepper, cloves, and nutmeg.

- almond milk* (or some other delicious alternative)
- 1-2 Celestial Seasonings' Bengal Spice tea bags
- cinnamon to sprinkle
{- a drizzle of maple syrup for anyone who needs a little extra sweetness}
* for a more decadent, cocoa-like drink, try chocolate almond or cashew milk

Here's how you make it:
1. Using your preferred mug to measure the milk, pour out enough almond milk to fill the mug.

2. Pour into a saucepan/ pot, add tea bag(s), and bring close to a boil.  Stay nearby and pay attention to the milk--it is really messy if it overboils!

3. When the milk has nearly reached a boil, remove from heat, stir, and allow the tea bag(s) to steep.

4. Remove the tea bag(s), top with a sprinkle of cinnamon, {drizzle with maple syrup, if you want extra sweetness}, and enjoy!

What's your favorite hot drink?
