1 teaspoon loose-leaf Darjeeling tea

1 star anise

1 cinnamon stick

Pinch ground ginger

2 cups heavy cream

6 ounces chopped chocolate (recommended: Godiva dark chocolate)

  1. In a small saucepan, heat water to a boil. Drop in tea leaves, turn off heat, and steep for about 5 minutes. Strain tea back into pan and add star anise, cinnamon stick, ginger, and heavy cream. Heat over medium heat until cream scalds, watching carefully so that cream does not spill over.
  2. Put chocolate in a medium bowl. Strain hot cream mixture into bowl with chocolate. Add vanilla and whisk until chocolate is melted. Transfer to mugs and serve warm or chilled.
  3. *Cook's Note: The spices may be increased, to taste, if your preference is spicier.
