So I'm not as adventurous with food and have gone yet another week without trying anything new or loving anything new. BUT something that I've always loved is tea and coffee. But when is the right time to drink it?
Let's break down tea first. I love it hot or cold. I'm actually an iced tea snob and only like the powdered Lipton Iced Tea. But I can have this any time of the day any time of the year. Hot tea is a different story. I grew up on Lipton Tea the way my mom makes it with her unique blend of milk and sugar. Me trying to replicate that blend was impossible and I decided I hated that tea but found mint tea. That was my new bae and I was obsessed with peppermint tea for the longest time. I had a cup a day. I go to Chamomile when I'm sick and recently I found I love Earl Grey and now I want to explore black teas. But hot tea is only a winter thing.
Coffee is my best friend. I have about 5 cups a day. I say that, but really I havent had a single cup today... But growing up my dad loved coffee, my mommom loved espresso and my poppop made a mean cappuccino and my mom only had a latte every once in a while. I was trained to love them all and now I can never make up my mind. (another lie, I always make coffee's unless I try to be different at Starbucks. I'm growing out of the frappuccino stage and I've been getting iced coffee or a latte if it's that cold out.) My coffee of choice just depends on the time of day. Daytime I'm all about iced coffees and frappuccinos but once it's night or early in the morning, I go for the typical cup of Joe. I have found out that my favorite combination is hazelnut coffee with irish cream...
What are your thoughts on the hot (or cold) drinks?
