I'm in love with the spicy mocha at Monkey Nest, and wanted to make it at home. Here's my version!

1 T. cocoa powder
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
Stevia to taste
1/3 c. milk
Put ingredients in large mug and pour in 8oz of hot water. Stir. Imbibe.
Green tea has been cited to be beneficial when it comes to all kinds of disease, from heart disease to Alzheimer's, to many types of cancers. Read more on the benefits of green tea, at the World's Healthiest Foods website.
According to Dr. Oz, green tea has been shown to boost metabolism 12% by drinking just one cup; tangerine, with a chemical composition that increases sensitivity to insulin and stimulates genes that help to burn fat; and mint, a calorie-free flavor enhancer.
Well, regardless of whether these statements are true, this is darn tasty tea.
In a large pitcher, combine:
8 cups of brewed green tea
1 tangerine, sliced
A handful of mint leaves
Honey to taste
Let the tea sit in the fridge overnight so all the flavors fuse together. Serve over ice.
