1366 Tasting Notes
Earlier today I was craving tea, but I was also craving hot cocoa.
Porque los dos? lifts up a little girl and cheers and eats a taco
So yes, I also needed a bit of a pick me up, so this tea was perfect. I decided to make a latte, but used too much almond milk, it was all I could taste…so I added a bit of cocoa mix. It was absolutely lovely.
Coldbrew for a snowy afternoon.
Okay, it’s not that snowy, but I’m melting. I made candy for my brother, which is hot work! I was super grateful for this blend being cold and ready to go.
I’m trying to cut back my sugar intake, but even with less sugar, it was too sweet. Hmm. But it is still delicious and one I highly recommend.
I cold brewed to help satisfy that craving for cold teas, and I only have enough for maybe one cold brew left and I’m kinda okay with that. If I want a cold blueberry tea, I’m going to reach for Blueberry Jam. This was just…overwhelmingly sweet, and I like my teas sweet.
It’s good, but I’m not sorry to see it go.
We grabbed Egg Nog lattes while wandering around the mall on Saturday and I, of course, had to have this. De wanted Santa’s Secret too, but I made her try something else so, well, I could try it XD. I know, I’m the worst.
This was so. good. She had buttered rum, and while it was okay, this was amazing. So, so yummy.
Lately, despite the fact that it is freezing outside, all I want are cold drinks. Tons and tons of ice cold drinks. Which is all well and good, but requires some planning on my part. Either I need to cold brew or stick soda in the fridge or harass my wife into refilling the brita when she uses it. In a 24-hour period this weekend, I went through two sprite “double gulps” from 7-11…which I just discovered were 64 ounces each. Yikes. I meant, they were 3/4 ice, but I ate the ice too, so I don’t really get much leeway there.
Anyway, what I’m trying to say is I am thirsty. This is a cold brew I made for today and it was heavenly. Sweet and floral with a berry burst that I adore. So, so good. It went perfectly with my lunch of a reuben, homemade chex mix, and clementines.
I used 2 bags for 25 ounces of water.
Mrrrf. Day number two of waking up at 2 and being unable to get back to sleep. I told myself I’m not allowed to nap today because we have a full day tomorrow and I need to sleep tonight. And I was doing okay until about…now. 11:30. On top of that, I have a package coming and the mailman usually delivers around 12:30, so if I nap now, I’ll miss the delivery of a jacket I want to wear tomorrow.
Matcha to the rescue!
Or so I thought, But the first gulp of this brought along a major headache that is only getting worse as I sip. I’m trying to power though in order to get the wake-up boost, but it just isn’t working. I am disappoint.
