It's cold. Well, considering it's December...that comes as no surprise. And besides fluffy socks, my favorite thing about the winter is steamng mugs of delicious beverages. When I wake up, when I get to work, when I get home, before bed, walking down the street - in fact there isn't a time that I don't want a cup of something hot.
I tend to be an equal opportunity drinker and can enjoy any variety of temperature enhanced liquid refreshments. Of course I love tea (if I didn't then I guess you wouldn't have found this blog to begin with. I like to begin th emorning with an herbal blend (though not being a morning person, this often doesn't happen more than it does happen). And when I get to work, I enjoy my specially prepared hazelnut coffee from the deli. Then an hour later or so, I have moer tea. And then by the end of the day I've had another herbal blend...and at night more herbal tea, usually a potful before bed.
When it's snowing, like it was today, I might make myself a chai with milk, or a hot cocoa (yum!)
I hate cold. Once it's cold, I usually get sick to some degree. My body was made to live in Arizona or the like...but I live in New York. So, I try to find the one thing that can ward off cold. Only I change it up everyday. Sometimes it's an oolong, some days a chai, some days it's chamomile and lemon verbana, some days I don't get the coffee, some days it's nothing but hot cocoa...I don't think I could ever drink the same thing every day.
A Different day, a different drink.
Talking of which....excuse me, but my mug is empty again....
