I’m… a bit of a peanut butter enthusiast, friends.
When I was a kid, the Parent Trap remake came out, and I was introduced to the magic that is oreos dipped in peanut butter. My favorite part of my Easter basket every year was the mini reeses’ cups. In college, I’d been known to substitute an actual meal for a few spoonfuls of on straight out of the jar (truly). My husband– love him as I do– cannot STAND peanut butter. (GASP.) It may be his only flaw.
But do you know what that means? It means that I get this tea ALL TO MYSELF and I don’t havta share ever and mwahaha-mine-all-mine-GIMME. Seriously, you guys: this tea is that good. It is a spot-on dead ringer for my favorite peanut butter chocolate candies, but without nearly the same feelings of over-indulgence (I’m not a college kid with a peanut butter spoon anymore, friends). It is absolutely sinful brewed up with some milk (no sweetener needed), and rebrews quite well, to boot.
If you’ve identified with any of my die-hard pb-loving quirks above: you need this tea, friends. Trust me. (Drink it with an oreo and a side of early-2000s Lindsay Lohan at camp, of course).

A lot of tea companies provide nut based herbal blends. The most famous I can think of is Forever Nuts by DAVIDsTEA. I enjoyed that when I first tried it but quickly fell out of love with it. Unfortunately, so many other blends taste just the same. This is not like those blends. This tea is just so much better.
I prepared it as an eggnog latte today, mostly because I have a whole lot of eggnog to get through and a latte seemed like a perfect choice for such a rich tea. I topped it off with some chocolate curls and the result was a decadent dessert in a mug, a liquid peanut butter cup.
The tea itself is just so smooth but making it as a latte just upped the creaminess 100%. It is like someone took a spoon of smooth peanut butter and melted it down. Add to that the taste of the chocolate curls and it is like having a peanut butter ribbon running through a velvety hot chocolate.
For me this was a treat with breakfast but I can see this being used to satisfy cravings anytime of the day. And, since its caffeine free, it can be a perfect dessert even at bedtime!
