Mocha Hazelnut Oatmeal

I got an extra large pot of Mocha Hazelnut tea at the Tea Cup yesterday. If Mocha Hazelnut tea sounds good to you, I assure you, it tastes even better--a hearty, robust cup of hazelnuts, blackberry leaf, chicory, vanilla, and other wonderful, earthy delights. Oh, the aroma.

I took home the half cup I had left, and this morning boiled it in a pot and added to it my morning oatmeal. I saw some almond extract in the cupboard and added some of that too, as well as some cinnamon.

I'm a long-time practitioner of using tea rather than water in my cooking, and this morning's experiment cemented my position as a pioneer at the forefront of combining new flavors. That is to say, it was delicious.
