My favorite is Cocoa from scratch. Or maybe dark roast coffee w/ half and half...
or maybe mint tea,
no... maybe Lapsang souchong
wait.. can I change my mind?


I love impending cooler weather and hot beverages. Here's my favorite cup:

For two plus days now I have been on a tea kick. Bigelow's English Tea Time. Black with some sugar. I am sure I will run out before my next shopping foray. So then back to coffee.

I usually drink black tea from Murphy's or peppermint tea.

For a treat, I like hot cocoa made with unsweetened almond milk. I add sugar as needed. And a dollop of Frangelico for the hazelnut flavour.

The trick to making hot cocoa that is smooth is to first put a few tablespoons of milk in a mug and heat until hot. Then add top quality cocoa powder and make a paste. Stir with fork until smooth. Then add milk, more cocoa, sugar - whatever you like.

Voila! No lumps :-)

I don’t generally like hot beverages, except during our very short but cold winter. Yes folks, the desert gets cold. Very cold! Deserts are dry, but not necessarily hot, as I’ve told so many tourists when I worked at a Strip hotel!

Anyway, when I’d like something hot to drink, dark roast coffee with hazelnut syrup and half-and-half satisfies my taste buds, and gives me a jump-start to the day. I’ll take a nice hot cup or bowl of soup in lieu of a hot beverage though, if it’s brunch, lunch, dinner, or dim sum.

I've never been a coffee drinker since my much older brother used to hold me down in the mornings and breathe morning/coffee breath in my face when I was a kid.
So, tea or hot chocolate were the only hot drinks that I've ever enjoyed.

I love all kinds of tea except many chai teas (aka sticks and rocks tea), but to me, the flavor of cooking spices in beverages is offputting.

I love very astringent teas, and grassy greens, and fragrant types like a good Earl Grey, or the first harvest Oolongs.

I always have two cups of morning coffee with cream but I picked up my first quart of holiday eggnog at the grocery. I don't like it so thick, so I always dilute it by half with with nonfat milk. Hot in a mug with or without libation and fresh nutmeg grated on top is a dreamy bedtime treat.

I've started putting a tablespoon of cinnamon in with the coffee grounds before brewing. Very tasty and adds a sweet note to the coffee. Then heavy cream, wonderful.
