With Aiya's new and improved Rooibos and Black Tea Zen Cafe Blend 180g bags, serving specialty drinks at holiday gatherings have never been easier. To promote our newest products, we are excited to share with you a holiday classic with a twist- Black Tea Peppermint Mocha! Who knew cocoa and tea pair so well together?

A couple tips for making this drink. First, adjust the amount of peppermint syrup you use depending on how peppermint-y you want your recipe to be, and second, crush a small amount of candy cane inside a ziploc bag and sprinkle on top of the whip cream for a festive look!



  • 2 Tbsp Aiya's Black Tea Zen Cafe Blend
  • 3 tsp raw cocoa powder
  • 2 cups heated almond milk, unsweetened
  • 3/4 Tbsp peppermint syrup
  • Whipped cream
  • Small marshmallows
  • 2 small candy canes (for garnish)



  1. Mix 2 tbsp Aiya Black Tea Zen Cafe Blend with 3 tsp cocoa powder.
  2. Pour in heated almond milk and whisk until combined.
  3. Mix in 3/4 tbsp peppermint syrup.
  4. Pour into two mugs.
  5. Top with whip cream and marshmallows.
  6. Add candy cane to garnish. 

Note: if mixture is too thick, add hot water or strain through a fine mesh strainer.

And there you have it! A deliciously festive drink to serve at any holiday party!
