On a cold morning, there is nothing better than sipping hot tea and having a warm hearty meal of oat meal.

Follow it up with snuggles with a warm little animal and that equals a morning of quiet contentment.

 

 

 

This oat meal combines a mellow Chai tea and honey flavor with the savory taste of butter toasted pecans.

With that flavor combo, my morning felt epic and a tad sophisticated. Today is going to be great.

After the successfully delicious creation of those Matcha green tea cookies, I was dreaming about creating this chai tea oatmeal as I fell asleep last night. This tea flavored oatmeal was seriously good, and now I am seriously hooked on tea flavored food. Now what to make next???  What other tea flavored foods do you think would be good?
