Hygge Tea Infused Rice Pudding

Reading Time: 2 minutes

What’s hygge? It’s the Danish obsession with getting cozy. Think fuzzy socks, warm gatherings and, of course, decadent treats.

This delicious rich rice pudding is our own special take on hygge. Heartwarming, creamy and incredibly comforting, our latest recipe is inspired by the Danish dessert, Risalamande. The twist? It’s infused with our new Walnut Orange Scone tea to give it a touch of nuttiness and citrus

Usually served on Christmas Eve, this Scandinavian indulgence is often topped with a sweet dollop of whipped cream and an oh so tangy cranberry sauce. What’s more, tradition calls for the cook to hide one almond in the middle and whoever gets it receives a gift!

Decadent dessert AND presents? Now that’s something we can get behind.
