Tea-Infused Hot Cereal

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by nomnom

Technically, this is NOT a recipe - more of a CONCEPT or as a new venture and just a way to add more variety (and flavor and color in some delicious cases) to plain ole hot cereal. Feel free to use with oatmeal, farina (cream of wheat), cream of rice (which could use that extra punch), grits, or cornmeal mush (maybe even porridge)

Lovely way of adding variation to your oatmeal or other hot cereal! I used old-fashioned oatmeal and a cherry-black currant tea, which added great colour and taste! Also I used some cinnamon for the spices. Mmmm! I, too made this on the stove top and it came together very quickly and easily. I cant wait to try other types of tea and cereal using this concept. :) THANKS SO MUCH for sharing your yummy recipe with us, nomnom! Made and reviewed for Comfort Cafe-Snow Queen Round-January 2010.
