Whatโ€™s in your cup?

โ€ƒ

A companion thread to What's on your plate? 

 

I thought it would fun to share what weโ€™re all drinking. It could be your favourite tea or show of your crowd pleasing cocktail recipes. Whatโ€™s in your cup?

Right now, Iโ€™m enjoying a nice cup of ginger peach tea with milk and honey. Itโ€™s nice and calming before bed.

Spoiler
And shout out to the original thread  I kinda found out too late about this and itโ€™s been far too long since it was updated. 

 

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

Right??? Like where's the fun in picking just one and wondering for the rest of my life if I picked the wrong one?  I could have been enjoying my cup so much more!!!  It's really both for science, mental health and community volunteering @itsfi .  I'm glad you guys understand how our experiments are really saving the world, one cup of dirty gingerbread chai at a time. 

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@itsfi That would totally qualify as a 2023 purchase. But if you are saving money by not going to Starbucks and making your own, surely that fits into a no-buy plan! ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

So very true @PrettyPaint! I like your thinking! Thank you! I was also reminded (though it wasn't the intent) that my no buy / low buy is really geared primarily towards purchases of makeup, handbags, shoes and clothes. I think I will have to pick up a carton of the Tazo chai concentrate. For testing purposes, of course. Of. course.

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@itsfi You definitely can't have a no buy for coffee and coffee-related beverages. However, you have definitely included some of my favorite categories (makeup, handbags, shoes and clothes) in your low buy. I should do the same!

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

Coffee is a necessity @PrettyPaint! โ˜•๏ธ is your low buy for the whole year? Part of the year?

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@itsfi I should be on a no or low buy, but I don't necessarily have a plan. I think I'm just going to try to be conscious of not buying anything too similar to what I already own. 

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@PrettyPaint, being more conscious of what you're buying is a great plan! So much of it is being mindful, I think. At least for me. It can be easy to just fall into the pattern of seeing something that catches my eye and buying it.

Matcha latte

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@SportyGirly125 Cutest sticker!  The marketing on this is spot on!

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@missjeanie @They have some funny stickers. 

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@SportyGirly125  That looks delicious, and I love the sticker. As many times as I have tried to make matcha lattes from home, they are never nearly as good as coffee/tea shops.

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@SportyGirly125 Matcha lattes are so good! And that sticker is hilarious! We all know youโ€™re not a grinch though. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@JoSometimes @They have a bunch of fun stickers that they put on every cup. My husband got one that isnโ€™t appropriate to post on here. It was good laughs.

Gingerbread oatmilk chai from Starbucks

I prefer the holiday / winter coffee drinks than the pumpkin / early fall ones, so this drink was right up my alley. Not sure if it's a regular on their holiday menu or a new drink this year, but it was warm and cozy. ๐Ÿ˜‹  A nice change from my usual drip coffee or cold brew.

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

Mmmโ€ฆ Sounds perfect for keeping warm and toasty @itsfi!

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

It was really good @JoSometimes! I do use the weather as an excuse justification for indulging. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Well, itโ€™s not only the weather I use for that. ๐Ÿ˜ 

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@itsfi  That looks really good. I've been wanting to try that, but I wasn't sure if it contains any espresso or just the chai. I guess I could always have them add some - a dirty gingerbreak oatmilk chai?

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@PrettyPaint, itโ€™s just chai tea, but I am looooving your dirty gingerbread oatmilk chai. Iโ€™m indulging in a coffee โ˜•๏ธ at the moment with brunch, but I am not at all opposed to grabbing a PrettyPaint 2023 Special (aka dirty gingerbread oatmilk chai) on my way home. I mean, Iโ€™m suuuuure Iโ€™ll pass by a Starbucks on my way home today. ๐Ÿš™ 

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@itsfi Let me know if you give it a try! I agree that it sounds like the perfect after-work treat (as long as it doesn't keep you up tonight). I think I might use my starbucks rewards on it!! 

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

Time got away from me @PrettyPaint! And I even passed by 2 Starbucks stores on my way home today. I will plan to pick one up on my way to work tomorrow. 

Re: Whatโ€™s in your cup?

@itsfiCertainly no rush to try it, but I am always an advocate for more coffee!
