S’mores Chai Latte

It’s another edition of Tea Tuesdays. Today’s edition is extra chocolatey! I normally make my lattes with regular milk, but I used chocolate milk instead. It froths nicely, but it isn’t as creamy as regular milk. It was still delicious.

The tea itself contains pieces of chocolate bits, marshmallows, and graham crackers. It’s a pu’erh tea, which gives you a boost of energy. The chocolate and marshmallows gives it an extra decadent taste, not overly sweet, but just the perfect amount of sweetness. I added a few mini marshmallows on top of my latte, and some milk chocolate bits. It was amazing!

I made one for my boyfriend, as well. My mug is the S’mores. I saw it when my boyfriend and I were shopping a few years ago. It was on sale, so I had bought it. Which is perfect because that Autumn I saw this S’mores Chai tea. When I tried this tea it made me love my mug even s’more!

My boyfriend loves Koi fish, so I happily purchased this mug for him. He loves it.

Thankful Thursdays #21

I feel that this has been a wonderful week, and I am thankful for the events that have happened.

I hope you spend some time, thinking and expressing gratitude for the things that has happened this week.

  1. I have had time to have readathons throughout the week. That is where I have been able to finish some of my books.
  2. I spent the majority of Monday cleaning and tidying my room. Cleaning always helps me feel better, and more relaxed.
  3. Yesterday my boyfriend and I watched a romantic movie together. We watched The Longest Ride, again. I was inspired by writing about it in my blog on Tuesday. It’s such a great movie. It’s one of my favourite Nicholas Sparks movie and book.
  4. I found my favourite chocolate bar in my snack box, I thought I had ate it a few weeks ago. I found it at the perfect time since that was our mini snack for the movie.
  5. Got my inspiration to finish what appears to be a neglected story right now. I felt uninspired to write it. It’s called Unimaginable Treasure. It’s about the importance and benefits of decluttering. So I apologize for those that have been patiently waiting for chapter three. In the meantime, you can catch up, or read it for the first time, here https://threeyellowdaisies.ca/category/unimaginable-treasure/ I appreciate any feedback, if you have any. 🙂

Hot Chocolate Latte

In this Tea Tuesday edition on a Wednesday. Yesterday was a beautiful day, so I ended up spending the day outside reading a good book.

I made myself a hot chocolate latte in my cozy sweater mug. Over the weekend, I officially took out my Christmas/winter mugs and teas. I keep them in my cupboard, but now they are on display, which is always exciting.

It is extra creamy especially as a latte. It also uses real cocoa beans, so it is really decadent. It makes for the perfect treat.

Here is my special cozy sweater mug, that is my favourite winter mug. I bought it last year, as a Christmas present for myself.

Day 48 of 193

This is Sunday’s item. My boyfriend and I bought two of these treats. We didn’t really need the toys, we just wanted the chocolate, because the chocolate is amazing!

My sister’s step son loves dinosaurs, so I’m happy that he will love his new toys.

Day 46 of 193

So yesterday, I took a day to myself to just relax and sort of unplug, mostly just from social media. I miss you all. Although I did make the exception for some TV since it’s hockey time. I am disappointed that my team didn’t force a game five, but now I’ll have more time since there isn’t much hockey for me to watch now.

My boyfriend and I buy these chocolate with surprises in them, and this was one of our surprises. We just buy it for the chocolate, because the chocolate is so yummy. But my sister’s step son loves dinosaurs, so we’re just going to pass it on to him. He’s going to love it.

Digital Declutter: I’ve deleted 10 photos so far. It isn’t much, but it is one of my small steps, to declutter my photo clutter. I need to go through my photos because I have duplicates from events that I haven’t actually gone through them yet. This is really starting to the ball moving.

National Ice Cream Day

Hi everyone!

Did you know that the third Sunday of July is National Ice Cream Day? Well it is!

My boyfriend and I stayed in and celebrated this “holiday”! We also celebrated meeting six years ago, today. So that was a lot of fun.

We had chocolate ice cream with peanut butter, and mini peanut butter cups. It is as delicious as it sounds!

S’mores Chai Iced Latte Float

Hi, sorry I didn’t write this yesterday, I was so tired from work. But here is my Tea Tuesday post, on a Wednesday!

I was at least able to document my tea experience yesterday. I had a S’mores Chai iced latte float, topped with chocolate and peanut butter ice cream. Oh, my goodness! It was delicious.

As you might not have known, S’mores Chai is my favourite tea right now. I first tried last year, and I immediately fell in love with it. It’s a rich chocolate treat, with bits of marshmallows, and graham crackers. It is a pu’erh tea, which in order words, an energizing tea.

First, I like a strong tea, so I can let this tea steep for as long as I want to, because it has an even richer flavour after several of hours. I have it as an iced tea, so I don’t have to worry about it being cold. Last summer, I would steep it before going to bed, and having it first thing in the morning.

This time, I only steeped it for about an hour or so, placed ice in it. Next I frothed my milk under the cold stir setting. I then poured in the milk, and topped it off with a scoop of my chocolate and peanut butter ice cream, as a special treat. Because life is too short, to not treat yourself.
