(NC) - Surprise Mom with breakfast in bed this Mother's Day. Create a simple menu starring this comforting and aromatic tea-based beverage - easy enough for dads and kids to prepare together. Real cream with a hint of vanilla adds rich smoothness.


  • 1 bottle Dairyland French Vanilla Creama 400 mL
  • 10 green cardamom pods
  • 2 cm cinnamon sticks about 6 inches/15each
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 tbsp coarsely chopped fresh ginger root 25 mL
  • 2 tsp fennel or anise seed 10 mL
  • 1/2 tsp whole cloves 2 mL
  • 1/2 tsp black peppercorns 2 mL
  • 5 cups boiling water 1.25 L
  • 3 black tea bags
  • nutmeg or ground cinnamon freshly ground, optional
  • freshly ground nutmeg or ground cinnamon optional


  • Combine the Creama, cardamom pods, cinnamon sticks, bay leaf, ginger, fennel, cloves and pepper in a heavy saucepan set over medium-low heat. Bring to a simmer; reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes to infuse the cream. Meanwhile, pour the boiling water over the tea bags; steep for 5 minutes or until of desired strength.
  • Strain and discard the spices from the hot Creama mixture; stir into the steeped tea. Sprinkle with nutmeg or cinnamon (if using) before serving.


For a cafi experience, remove 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the strained Creama mixture and froth with a milk frother until foamy. Spoon over the top and sprinkle with nutmeg or cinnamon. More recipes can be found online at
