Guess what? I have some more big news!
This past week has been full of fun things and announcements It started with New Year’s intentions, moved to a special on Baking with Quinoa, then on to a coconut oil giveaway and now for the biggest news of all. The boyfriend and I are moving to New York City in two weeks! We’re super excited (also super scared at the same time) but can’t wait to start this new chapter of our lives. It’s a great way to start the year, that’s for sure!
And for me, the move couldn’t come at a better time. You see, even though I live in Vermont (where the winter seems to last for years), I still haven’t gotten used to the cold. In fact, I hate the cold. With all of my being I hate it. I would so much rather be sitting on the couch, swaddled in fleece blankets, fuzzy fleece socks wrapped around my feet, with my fur lined slippers ensuring they stay toasty warm all day long, than thinking of stepping outside and feeling like I’m going to freeze to death.
But then there’s always tea, right?
Last week it was -10 degrees here with the wind chill. For a person that despises the cold, I was miserable. All I wanted to do was drink tea all day long. But as much as I love my herbal tea, sometimes there needs to be something more.
Which is exactly why whipping up this fabulous Green Tea Latte was in order. Green tea with its amazing health benefits, combined with foamy almond milk and sprinkled with ground ginger, was the perfect Asian-inspired beverage for those bitter winter days.
So it’s time to cozy up to a crackling fire, with your favorite new book on your lap, and a cup of this Green Tea Latte in your hands. And you know what? I think I’ve suddenly warmed up to the idea of winter…
