Let me get back to you on this one. I need to chew it over‘.

To chew over means to think about the matter carefully before making a decision.

More examples:

– Councils chew over gum tax plan (BBC). Can you even get a pun-less newspaper headline these days?

– Something to chew over (The Economist).
