Today was Day #3 of Chocolate Tea and Beverage Theme Weeks.

Sitting down and sipping tea can be very calming. It's an occasion to slow down and relax and savor flavors. Cup of Life's Organic, "Dreamy Decadence" rooibos-based tea contained roasted cocoa, as well as cinnamon and banana pieces and vanilla flavor.

I paired this tea with a trio of Chocolate Teacups (Jasmine in Dark Chocolate) from Kitchen T.L.C. (Bozeman, MT), that I featured previously some time ago. These tiny, edible teacup-shaped chocolates were just as florally flavorful and wonderful as I remembered them to be.

Today was Day #2 of Chocolate Tea and Beverage Theme Week(s).

Lapsang Souchang is a black tea known for its rich, smoky taste and aroma. In the traditional style, this tea is smoke-dried over pinewood branches.

Today's Organic Dark Chocolate Lapsang Souchang 60% cacao bar from Spicely Organics (Fremont, CA) was suffused with an evocative, yet subtle campfire flavor and a salt umami note.

I love good renditions of smoky, salty flavors with chocolate, and this blend was definitely one of my favorites this year.
