I didn’t take many photos today, I’ve felt rather in a haze this week, restless with my job and feeling the wings of change swelling my soul, believing within myself that it’s time to move on. But I digress. I did take a couple of nature shots, but my lack of focus in those photos if so evident I cringe. So, here it is. Quite by chance, I discovered the loveliest drink today, lovely with a bit of bite. I’m torn between calling it Orange Ginger Soy “Latte” & Orange Ginger Soy Mock Latte, in case people don’t understand why the “…” Want the recipe? I knew you did!
1 orange spice black tea bag
1 ginger tea bag
1/2 packet Splenda (or just a dab of whatever sweetener you like; I’m diabetic and my artificial sweetener of choice is Splenda)
Splash of soy milk
Steep the two tea bags together in hot (not boiling) water for fifteen minutes (this is why I discovered the drink: after fifteen minutes, the water looked like mud and I didn’t want to drink it when it was so strong… I was busy and forgot to pull the tea bags out when I meant to do so… so I added a little soy milk and half a pack of Splenda and voila, perfection).
Then, as I did, add a splash of soy milk and your sweetener and enjoy. It tastes similar to a spiced chai latte.
Bonus: using the same two bags, I made myself three cups of this deliciousness!
