What’s in your cup?

A companion thread to What's on your plate? 

 

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

Right now, I’m enjoying a nice cup of ginger peach tea with milk and honey. It’s nice and calming before bed.

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

 

Re: What’s in your cup?

Just coffee in my cup this morning. Monday's are always a little hard for me.

My son brought this back from his graduation trip in Montreal. I don't share this mug with anyone!

Re: What’s in your cup?

This is so vintage looking, I love it ❤️ @Mellmars1185 

Re: What’s in your cup?

@jaaayp Thank you. It is a special one 🥰

Re: What’s in your cup?

@Mellmars1185  I love that you are sentimental about your family.  I understand about Mondays; I'm always exhausted on that day!

Re: What’s in your cup?

@Mellmars1185 Mondays are hard but special cups like that one make it easier. ☺️

Re: What’s in your cup?

First time trying taro bubble tea. Loved it!

Re: What’s in your cup?

Oooh. Taro ❤️ have you ever had ube @Ispend2much6 ? If you love taro, you would be a fan!

Re: What’s in your cup?

@jaaayp  It's funny you mentioned that, because I wondered how similar they are.  Trader Joe's has ube ice cream, and I almost picked up a carton to try it.  Now I will- thanks!

Re: What’s in your cup?

I think they're essentially the same thing @Ispend2much6 maybe just different names? 🤔 I think the TJ ube ice cream is very mild ube flavor (kinda vanillaish?) But it is a sweet potato so maybe mild is right 😅

Re: What’s in your cup?

@Ispend2much6 Yuuum! I love taro. Mixing taro with other flavours is also a treat. 

Re: What’s in your cup?

@JoSometimes  Which combinations do you recommend?  I'm very afraid to look at the calorie count! lol  I do know that Coca Cola slurpies are only 80 calories...nice hot weather treat.

Re: What’s in your cup?

@Ispend2much6 I like taro with either strawberry, Oreo/chocolate, or red bean for days when I really want to indulge. Most of the time though, I stick to something tea based because calories. 

Re: What’s in your cup?

That looks delicious!! @Ispend2much6 

Re: What’s in your cup?

Love, love boba tea.  But, I'm always afraid I'm going to suck up a tapioca pearl and choke!  My son actually did, but recovered quickly.  @lmaster Next time I'll use a spoon.

Re: What’s in your cup?

I've never had it ever 🤦 @Ispend2much6 it looks so good though

Re: What’s in your cup?

oh yum @Ispend2much6 ! I have never tried that either but it's on my list!

Re: What’s in your cup?

@Kim888   It's so interesting that it's actually a tuber vegetable that the flavor is taken from. It tastes, to me, like a combo of vanilla, almond, and a generalized fruity taste.

Re: What’s in your cup?

@Ispend2much6 I really like taro bubble tea. My son says it tastes like skittles 😊

Re: What’s in your cup?

@Mellmars1185  I wonder if the taste changes a lot depending upon the mix-ins or toppings.  It definitely has a vanilla taste to me.   I always opt for the safe "amber" topping- brown sugar syrup.

Re: What’s in your cup?

@Ispend2much6 I think I just tried it once with only the tapioca pearls. I did find it somewhat nutty. I liked it. My go to is the milk tea. I am craving one now lol

Re: What’s in your cup?

@Mellmars1185  Me too!  I did buy a bag of the pearls; they need to be soaked, cooked, and added to a brown sugar syrup.  Or something else.  I think I'd like to try it with assam tea and spices.  And milk
