Wake Up Call Cafe

I've written before of my love of chocolate and mint. This time, I fell head over heels for my favorite duet in the form of tea and it can be found at the Wake Up Call Cafe in Keene. If tea is not your thing, you can get your "wake up" with their espresso drinks and coffee.

For months, Drew had been stopping in before work for the Chocolate Mint Truffle tea made by Mighty Leaf and I had been dying to try it. I'm not much of a coffee drinker and there are times when I can't decide between hot chocolate and tea. I found this tea to be the perfect solution to my beverage dilemma. The mint wasn't too powerful and the chocolate flavor was just mellow enough that it didn't take over. Once again, a perfect marriage of two flavors.

The owner allowed me to take a tea bag home so I cold inspect it further outside of a mug. The packaging describes the tea as, "handcrafted silken pouches are packed with artisan blends of whole tea leaves, fruits, herbs, spices and flavors too big for ordinary tea bags."

My husband thought that the tea bag resembled "ladies underpants, silky and ruffly." Say what?! On a more serious note he mentioned that you can usually get two drinks out of one tea bag.

So, for a nice treat head on down to Keene and grab yourself a tasty beverage at Wake Up Call Cafe.

We come up every year and were thrilled to see this new little coffee shop addition in one of our favorite towns, Keene! We stopped in every day and if it wasn't too late in the day, got wonderful yummy coffee drinks. Best of luck to this enterprising young couple.
