I have quite the sweet tooth! I also love a nice warm cup of tea in the winter to keep feeling cozy inside. To keep you feeling warm and toasty, and to accompany your movie night, I’ve come up with a great list of the Top 10 Desserts With Tea, the absolute perfect pairings! I’ve included a list of pairings with a variety of flavoured Alokozay Teas among others, including dessert recipes made with tea, and desserts ideas that we love paired with tea!

Chocolate Mousse made with Alokozay Vanilla Tea
This chocolate mousse recipe made with Alokozay Vanilla Tea is surprisingly easy and remarkably tasty!
-6 oz high quality bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips (about 2/3 cup)
-1/2 cup boiling water
-1 alokozay vanilla tea bag
-2 tsp freshly grated blood orange zest
-4 tsp granulated sugar
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-2 egg whites
-1/2 cup heavy cream
- Bring water to a boil. Add tea bag, orange zest, and sugar. Cover and steep for five minutes.
- Place chocolate chips, vanilla extract, and sugar in blender or Magic Bullet. Strain steeped tea into blender. Let sit about 30-60 seconds to allow the chocolate to begin to melt. Cover the blender and blend on high for 15 to 30 seconds.
- Add egg whites to the blender, cover, and blend on high for about 60 seconds.
- Divide mousse between 4 small serving containers. Cover and refrigerate until set. This usually takes about 3 to 4 hours, but can be done up to 2 days in advance.

Creme Brûlée made with Alokozay Cinnamon Tea
I was inspired to create a creme brûlée with a bit of a cinnamon flair. Here’s the recipe:
-2 cups whipping cream
-1/2 cup sugar
-3 egg yolks
-2 tbsp Alokozay cinnamon tea
-1 tsp lemon juice
In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, egg yolks and whipped cream until well blended. Pour the liquid into 4 small ramekins. Place the ramekins into a large roasting pan filled with boiling water until hot water comes halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Bake at 350 degrees just until the creme brulee is set, but still trembling in the center, approximately 40 to 45 minutes. Remove the ramekins from the roasting pan and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 3 days.
Remove the creme brulee from the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes prior to browning the sugar on top. Spoon sugar equally overtop the 4 ramekins dishes. Using a kitchen torch, melt the sugar and form a crispy top.

Cupcakes Paired with Pekoe Tea
I love orange flavoured black tea with cupcakes. It’s something about the sweetness of the orange that pairs well with cupcakes.
