Peppermint Tea

This time of the year, most of us cherish the quiet moments when we can curl up with a warm mug of cocoa... and maybe a book.  But, for our angel, one sip of the milk-based, cocoa bean laced drink would end up in a medical disaster only rivaled by a bite of peanut butter!

So... this time of the year, in our house, we curl up with a warm cup of peppermint tea.  It is simple, soothing... and a great Christmas alternative to cocoa!

Peppermint Tea

1-2 sticks  Bob's "Sweet Stripes" Peppermint Sticks
6 oz warm water
1 festive mug
  1. Place the peppermint stick in the mug.
  2. Pour 6 oz warm water into the mug and stir the stick around until melted.
* Makes one cup of tea

NOTE:  For those who can safely drink tea, place 1/2 teaspoon oolong tea leaves into a diffuser.  Soak the diffuser in the cup with the peppermint for about 5 minutes or until  fully steaped.

Allergy note:  Bob's soft peppermint sticks and soft mint candies are made in a facility which only produces that product.  The ingredients are: sugar, peppermint oil
