By marrying the luscious, chocolatey notes of a classic mocha with the invigorating coolness of peppermint, we've created a beverage that embodies holiday magic. This delightful treat is not only easy to whip up but is also poised to become a cherished tradition for you and your loved ones.

So, grab your favorite mug, and let's dive into this festive holiday masterpiece!


  • 2 cups of TeeBox California Blend Coffee
  • ½ cup of milk (or milk substitute)
  • 3 tbsp. of sugar
  • 1 tbsp. of cocoa powder
  • 1 oz. of finely chopped bittersweet chocolate
  • 2 drops of peppermint oil
  • 2 crushed peppermint sticks

Coffee Steeping Directions:

  1. Begin by preparing your TeeBox California Blend Coffee. Place two TeeBox Steeped Coffee Bags into your 16 oz cup, and gradually pour 16 oz of hot water over the bags.
  2. Give those bags a little love by dunking them in the hot water for 15 seconds or more if you crave an extra kick.
  3. Allow the bags to steep for 5 minutes or until you achieve your desired strength and flavor profile.

Peppermint Mocha Directions:

  1. In a saucepan over low heat, combine the prepared TeeBox California Blend Coffee and 1/2 cup of milk (or your preferred milk substitute). Be cautious not to bring it to a boil; we want it to stay warm and comforting.
  2. Blend in the sugar, cocoa powder, and bittersweet chocolate, and let this delightful concoction cook for 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until all the ingredients meld into a harmonious symphony of flavors.
  3. Add a dash of magic with 2 drops of peppermint oil.
  4. Now, for the grand finale: Pour this velvety elixir into 4 mugs, depending on your preferred serving size.
  5. Crown each mug with a fluffy cloud of whipped cream and a sprinkle of crushed peppermint sticks. This isn't just for taste; it's a holiday decoration in a cup!

Serve up this TeeBox Holiday-Inspired California Blend Peppermint Mocha and bask in the joy of the season. It's a heartwarming experience in every sip.
