Happy January, everyone! We hope that you had the loveliest of holidays, that you were able to spend time with those who you love and love you best, eat delicious foods and drink delicious drinks, and enjoy every moment of every second!
We had a great holiday season and we’re so excited for 2023 and everything it has to offer! With that being mentioned, does anyone have any New Year’s resolutions? Ours is to continue to provide the best of teas as well as our tips and fun recipes to you all! Well, we might have some other plans… But you’ll just have to wait and see!
But even though December has passed, winter is here to stay. And although it means more cold weather for the majority of us, it doesn’t mean that we have to stop getting cozy by the fire with our favorite drinks and snacks. It’s important for us to remember to enjoy the little treats life has to offer during cold winter months. And guess what? We have a new cookie recipe to help give you your cozy little treat fix!
If you’re a fan of coffee, cinnamon, chocolate — and better yet, chocolate — this one’s for you. Check out our Chicoriccino Chocolate Chip Cookies!
What’s So Special About Chicoriccino Tea?
If you’re asking what makes the Chicoriccino
so delicious, you’re in the right place. This blend of tea has the most beautiful intoxicating aroma of chicory based chocolate, cinnamon, and dandelion root that resembles the smell of coffee. With hints of nuttiness that tie this flavor profile perfectly, it brings the question as to why we’ve never made a recipe for it yet.
Low on caffeine, this choice tea is an excellent choice for those wanting to stay healthy as this option has multiple health benefits.
Filled with antioxidants, the cinnamon and dandelion root help protect your body from cell radicals. Both contain anti-inflammatories that help prevent oxidative damage to your cells. The chicory acts as a prebiotic and is often used to settle upset stomachs. And of course, cocoa is also rich in antioxidants, helps lower blood pressure, improves cholesterol, and we must not forget, brings joy to our soul!
It’s really no wonder why Chicoriccino is sure to bring your winter coziness levels to the maximum!
