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.

Spoiler
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?

Whoa, whoa, whoa... side eye, eh? Hmmm @missjeanie, I wonder if that someone is wanting to help try out those different chai concentrates. It certainly can't be side eye because of judgment!!! I mean, how are you going to know which chai concentrate is the best? Or if one is better suited for certain days than others? Some of us rely on folks' recommendation. We need you to try these different concentrates, vis-a-vis one another is even better. It really is for the greater good.

Re: What’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: What’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! 🙂

Re: What’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: What’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: What’s in your cup?

Coffee is a necessity @PrettyPaint! ️ is your low buy for the whole year? Part of the year?

Re: What’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: What’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: What’s in your cup?

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

Re: What’s in your cup?

@missjeanie @They have some funny stickers. 

Re: What’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: What’s in your cup?

@SportyGirly125 Matcha lattes are so good! And that sticker is hilarious! We all know you’re not a grinch though. 😊

Re: What’s in your cup?

@JoSometimes @They have a bunch of fun stickers that they put on every cup. My husband got one that isn’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. 😋  A nice change from my usual drip coffee or cold brew.

Re: What’s in your cup?

Mmm… Sounds perfect for keeping warm and toasty @itsfi!

Re: What’s in your cup?

It was really good @JoSometimes! I do use the weather as an excuse justification for indulging. 😉 Well, it’s not only the weather I use for that. 😝 

Re: What’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: What’s in your cup?

@PrettyPaint, it’s just chai tea, but I am looooving your dirty gingerbread oatmilk chai. I’m indulging in a coffee ️ 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, I’m suuuuure I’ll pass by a Starbucks on my way home today. 🚙 

Re: What’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: What’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.
