It has gotten quite cool these days. How are you keeping warm?
We've been drinking Hawaiian Vanilla Company's coffee and tea. Vanilla flavored A dark roast coffee flavored with Hawaiian Vanilla extract.
The tea is made by Harney & Sons and flavored with their Hawaiian vanilla extract. Both are very comforting.
Venchi dark cocoa. Starts off a little sweet and ends with a bitter taste.
Lupicia's Jardin Sauvage. A green rooibos tea flavored with mango and citrus. Very nice in the afternoon.
Alaska's Wild Teas. Non-caffeinated and delicious.
Betjeman & Barton's Eden Rose...blah! too perfumy for my liking.
Ibarra's mexican chocolate. Not too chocolatey and way too sweet for me.
There was tea au lait. I've had this in cafes around here, they brew tea and put steamed milk with the crema on top. You can add your own sugar or drink it as is.
Poulain's Grand Arome, I received this from Bourgogne a while back but finally got around to making it, though I didn't know how to make it, from what I could get translated I somehow made a cup. This really reminded me of Ovaltine, a drink I loved as a kid.
But there haven't only been beverages, there has also been warm, spicy kimchee ramen from one of our favorite places, Hanamichi.
Peck's is a famous grocer in Milano. They have a counter at different department stores around Japan. We received this Pannetone flavored tea. Citrus bits and spices, delicious.
And lastly, a lot of Kusmi teas--Kashmir Chai, Prince Vladimir and St Petersberg--all have different spices in them and are very comforting on a cold day.
They are predicting some flurries in the next couple of days...I can't wait!
