This morning was teatime, chocolate and banana style. I broke out the box of "Cuppa Chocolate Teas" from The Republic of Tea (Novato, CA), and plucked out the Chocolate and Banana flavored tea bag (with rooibos tea, cocoa and banana bits), because today was Day #3 of Chocolate and Banana Theme Week.

But, just in case, dear readers, you don't consider a nice big cup of tea a "real" chocolate, I added a small piece of chocolate-frosted, soft butter toffee made with porcini mushrooms and pumpkin seeds from Dude Sweet Chocolate (Dallas, TX). I couldn't really tasted the ground porcini mushroom, but I did pick up some soft crunch from pumpkin seed bits, and the bite I enjoyed was chewy, soft buttery sweet toffee (similar to a very rich brownie).
