Enjoying a little Chocolate Chip this morning, combined (I almost always take this tea with another one…I like my chocolate flavoring with something else, not so much by itself) with the last of my Coconut Macaroon. It’s really nice, and I can get away with using less sweetener, because chocolate is one of those flavors that I like just fine on the un-sweet side. Yes, I have been known to drizzle plain, unsweetened “bakers” chocolate on top of homemade energy bars, trusting the raisins in the bar to carry enough sweetness. My kids think I’m insane.
I just have to say, this is a tea I’m keeping as a pantry staple. I never drink it alone (chocolate flavored tea by itself just seems boring), but it combines SO WELL with other flavors. I like it with all manner of chais, with this coconut tea, with my Irish Breakfast, even with some herbals like Peppermint. I can’t imagine not having it on hand.
