- 2 teabags of "sugar cookie" herbal tea (use your favorite flavor)
- 3/4 cup water (if you're not letting this soak overnight, you'll want to use only 1/2 cup water)
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1 Tablespoon chia seeds (totally optional, but this is what I used)
Steep for the maximum amount of time recommended (7 minutes for mine), taste to ensure it's strong enough/not too strong, and then remove the teabags. You don't want to infuse for too long, it can get bitter.

Yep, I have bowls that I pretty much only use for oatmeal.

VerdictPleasing, subtle flavor.
I could barely tell this was flavored since it was really similar to my plain cinnamon oatmeal, but it was really nice. The next time I think I'll use one of my stronger herbal teas, like tangerine-ginger.
