I tried Chai tea for the first time a couple weeks ago and I LOVED it! In general, I don't like tea - it usually has really weak flavor, to me. The only other one I enjoyed was mint tea.

But I love spices and the mixture of cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, fresh ginger, star anise and black peppercorns steeped with a little black tea, then mixed with milk and honey was amazing. So good, I asked DH to buy some black tea since I already had all the spices. He was overwhelmed by the choices, so he decided to buy a box of chai tea bags. Oh, well. I'll drink those and then get some black tea myself.

Does anyone else drink chai tea?

I do. I love chai. I actually prefer mine without milk and honey most of the time.

I'm guessing you have probably seen this already. It's been pretty viral on TV here and also online. BUT, in case you haven't, it's a really cute take-off on a popular song from Disney's "Frozen" movie. Thanks to a friend with small kids I've probably seen every parody of "Let It Go", but this one is more appropriate for the coffee room. The original song is "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" Enjoy! I did...but then, I'm one of those "theatre people".

Stopped by a little while ago to scritch the kitties. With LittleBit gone I need a kitty-fix at times. Meanwhile, in case you were wondering, this pretty much sums my day up today:

I can "officially" join the coffee clatch! My Keurig Rivo Espresso machine arrived on Friday and I practiced with it on the weekend. I am only able to use decaf espresso, but I can once again enjoy my lattes in the morning.

LP, you could have joined before you got the Keurig, although I'm happy that you can enjoy your beans again. But tea drinkers are welcome, and they had better let those few of us who still don't have (or want) a Keurig stop by here too. In fact, I've not only declared our house Keurig free, I'm about to make it Green Mountain free. Moving on to a smaller, more personal bean pusher. Good coffee, better prices, what's not to love?

Oh, I know that CG! It is just that it would be hard hanging around knowing others were enjoying their cup of java and I couldn't! I am surprisingly better with espresso than regular coffee (decaf or not). I get headaches from the caffeine. But lattes with the espresso and lots of milk doesn't bother me so much....unless I have six a day PF!
