The Village Pantry and Chocolate Monkey tea

A friend was in town from Denver, and we definitely needed some girl talk. Front of mind for this chat was The Village Pantry in Pacific Palisades and some Chocolate Monkey tea. Where do I start with the Chocolate Monkey? First off, it comes in a French press as opposed to a steeping pot, so you get some interaction while seeing all the interesting bits that make up the awesome flavor. Can you spot the apple and banana chunks or the pink peppercorns enhancing the chocolate and red tea? I've enjoyed it both hot and over ice, and either way it is delicious. Bonus points for being decaf!

And, if you're assuming that The Village Pantry is all about girly tea, think again. I had their Mayor Burger: Angus beef with carmelized onions, bacon, bleu cheese, lettuce and tomato on a challah roll. YUM!! It deserves its own post!
