Second tea of the morning. I made stuffed french toast and turkey bacon for breakfast this morning and am trying to get through a couple of tea samples before we venture out to run some errands. The fiancee is very excited about this one, of course. I think this is a tea that would appeal to all men – there is something about chocolate chip cookies that seems to call to men, right? The tea smells chocolatey and you can instantly detect the strong black tea base that seems to be apparent in all of 52 Teas’ blends. This isn’t something that I mind in the least since I love a hearty black tea. Without anything added the tea tastes a little dull, but once milk and sweetener is added it becomes a liquid chocolate chip cookie. Probably not one that I would reach for everyday, but the flavor is certainly true to its name. Now my fiancee on the other hand is raving about this tea and swears he could drink it every day. Ha, men! Thanks Ninavampi!
