It has always been a fantasy of mine to bring back proper tea time. While in London I went to an Alice in Wonderland Tea and it was fabulous! There is something about tea time that makes you feel like a “proper” lady. Everything just seems so pretty and dainty. Of course, I loved the theme!
Tea time is all about eating scrumptious little bites with a warm cup of tea, and good company. I have had the opportunity to work with Good Earth Tea company and try some of their delicious blends. The Puerh Indulgence blend is rich and unlike any tea I have tasted. It has a smooth chocolate undertone from the cocoa nibs, a sweetness from the raspberry and a warmth from the cinnamon. Making this definite comfort in a mug!
That is where the inspiration of a chocolate dipped cookie was born. A very traditional tea time cookie is shortbread. Shortbread is a rather plain and buttery cookie. I thought, why not spice it up with using the actual tea in the cookie? Dipping the cookie in a fudgy chocolate only helped complete this tea time bite.
