drank Coconut Cream Pie by 52teas
28 tasting notes

Woke up and decided to deal with being 10min late to work so I could make this in the AM before my drive. Then thought I’d make it into a latte (as per 52teas recipe) thinking that the only thing better than eating your dessert before dinner is eating dessert first thing in the morning before any meals have been had. What’s even better is that although my tire blew out on the interstate when my gas tank was on E and I had to wait an hour and a half to get my tire changed with my car off for fear of running out of gas and then really looking like an idiot (and hey, it’s freezing rain outside – no I’m not going out to change it myself), I got to sit and smugly wait in my car, sipping my dessert before I even had breakfast. I highly recommend it. :)

OMG! What a day! Glad the tea made it not so horrible (and may it only get better)!

I’m pretty much out of Mayan Chocolate Chai, but when I get more I’m gonna have to make a latte using their recipe. I’ve never used condenced milk for that before…

@Auggy: Oh thank you! It wasn’t so bad anyway, and things are looking up! :D
@Cofftea: Yeah, it’s super sweet – muuuch sweeter than I ever like my espresso lattes – but since i use it as a “dessert”, I don’t mind. :) And I myself have a sample of Mayan Choc. Chai somewhere in my stash. I’ll have to try that as a latte as well!

Cofftea

I think certain teas (like this one) might be too sweet that way, but I think the spice and chocolate would cut it nicely. Although I could see this frozen and blended!

Well, there’s a way to kick off the day. [I wouldn’t change my tire in the freeze either!] Happy to hear your day’s improving!

I love all things food, so my recent nudge into the tea world has been a welcome adventure. Yummy, too. Makes the death grip I have on my coffee mug relax just a bit. :)
