DIY White Frostea

I’ve mentioned a couple times that I pass several Starbucks on my way to work each day. Well, I also pass 2 Argo Teas. It’s just too much! If the Starbucks doesn’t lure me in, Argo is bound to. I drooled over a sign in the window for a few days…White Frostea. Finally I gave in to temptation.

Word can’t even describe how good this tea was. I’ve always been a tea lover, but this was beyond anything I had ever tried before. I literally walked into the office and made one of my friends try a sip so that we could discuss the minty goodness together. It’s like minty hot chocolate…except that it’s tea! When I came home that night I told my roommate that I went to Argo. It just so happens that she had gone also and she tried and loved the White Frostea too. Sometimes we read each other’s minds.

I loved the White Frostea so much that is was a no-brainer that we had to recreate it. Our DIY version was really good, but in all honesty not quite as good as Argo. I decided to use fresh mint to infuse the water but I am wondering if peppermint white chocolate bark would have been better. I am going to try that next and I will update this post.

Either way…I plan on making this tea all the time!

Here’s what you’ll need

Bring water to a boil and let the mint leaves infuse the water

Remove the mint leaves and add the white tea. Let steep 5 minutes.

Add the hot tea to a mug

And the hot milk

And the sugar too

Now stir the chocolate until melted and smooth

My new favorite treat. Inspired by my fave place, Argo :)

    I’ve never heard of Argo Tea before…we only have Starbucks here in New Brunswick and crappy Au Bon Pain Coffee/Teas so I am mad jelly about this white frostea! I consider myself a newbie with teas but this sounds delightful and so festive :) yum!

    Thanks for the recipe! I live in Los Angeles. Every time I go to Chicago a White Frostea from Argo Tea is a must. It is the best hot drink I’ve ever had and I miss it so much! Thanks for writing about how wonderful it is and sharing your recipe. I will definitely give it a try!

    I am not a big tea drinker, but I felt compelled to try this recipe, because I am a big white chocolate fan. I am so glad I did. this is an amazing drink that I am now totally gaga over. However, I didn’t have mint leaves or plain white tea so I just used peppermint tea I had on hand. It was fantastic. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe!
