Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian peeps! My family is hundreds of kilometers away but that didn’t stop me from making my own feast today: baked chicken breast, dressing, beets and mushrooms (a Ukrainian dish with tons of garlic), lemon garlic sauteed Brussels sprouts, and mashed sweet potatoes.
I’m ending the meal with a cup of Peppermint Patty to double as dessert and to settle the tummy. Not used to eating that much!
Most of the chocolate chips don’t seem to melt? I steeped it for over five minutes and agitated the water a couple times to get things going. I just ate whatever was left in my measuring cup, but it’s weird when you find a peppermint leaf here and there.
One thing I appreciate about this tea is that the flavours aren’t competing with a tea base. The peppermint is a lot more tingly here than in other blends, too. I could just go for more chocolate to get that true York peppermint patty feel, but maybe there is a way of getting the chocolate chips to melt easier.
I should pick up some chocolate extract. Ohhh, that would be great. And then I can add that to chai and other fun things.
