i drank this the other morning,
and was gonna make a note about it tonight.
but then i watched the new sherlock episode (3×02)
and now i’m so bittersweet-sad that i can’t bring myself to do anything further.

(… it’s next morning)
i made this cup of tea by steeping the “leaves” on the stove in unsweetened vanilla almond milk with agave added. since i never ever make lattes it felt EXTREMELY decadent. and when i added the herbal tea to the milk the kitchen filled completely with a rich chocolate smell. i sister smelled it immediately from far across the room. the flavor was a little strange to me at first? but i think i could get used to it in a very good way.
the true bonus was just making a latte and being reminded that i really should encourage myself to enjoy them more :) so much yum.

I have been trying to watch the episode for over 2 hours now but it keeps buffering. The episode is so great but it sucks watching it in like 5 minute chunks :(

Shmiracles

oh VariaTEA, that is seriously no way to watch quality tv! (my house has several film & movie snobs in it’s ranks, and if i watched like that i would seriously risk ostracization! hah. or at least get made fun of a whole lot)(but i understand. desperate times call for desperate measures!) i hope you go through the episode and enjoyed it.

That latte was awesome, yes. Super creamy chocolate.

OMGsrsly

I have to find the time to watch it tonight…

VariaTEA

I definitely agree Shmiracles but I introduced my sister to the show and she refused to watch on the laptop which meant that I had to hook it up to the television and if it went into sleep mode while waiting for it to load the sound would only play through my laptop speakers as opposed to the televisions ones, which also she was not okay with. That left me with the option to stand there and tap the laptop for an hr waiting for it to load or to watch it section by section :(
