Hot and good stuff

You have got to try this!

Holy yum! I just found my new favorite tea. It is Hot Cinnamon Spice from Caribou Coffee. I ran in there a couple weeks ago on a whim. I had just dropped off the kids at my mom's and I had five minutes to myself. Big deal unto itself! I would never go to a coffee shop with my kids, too many expensive treats just waiting to be bought (stuffed animals- ugh!, ginormous cookies, gourmet candies, you get the idea) and I am way too intimidated by all that coffee lingo. I have never developed the coffee taste/love so going to a Starbucks is kind of like going to a foreign country. I get stuff for big tall hubby sometimes when I am trying to suck up for being at Target too long while he is taking care of the kids, I mean, just because I love him! But then, I always get whatever the holiday special one is, like peppermint latte, or whatever. And I never say, "vendi" and all that other nonsense, I point to the big cup and say, "this size." Why pretend that I know what I am talking about!? Is it just me or are those coffee shop people snooty? (I'm sure not all of them are, before I offend anyone, just the ones I have encountered?)

Anyway, I was freezing (not unusual, I have no tolerance for cold) and I thought, by golly, I am going to get myself some tea. Wowzers, they have a huge selection. I asked the baristas what they recommended and they immediately said this flavor. It is absolutely delish! No kidding. It does not require any sweetener. AND it tastes exactly like a red hot cinnamon candy. Eeeeee! I love it. I told my mom all about it and she surprised me with this box. Sadly, I have drank about half of it already. **sniff sniff** I hope you get the chance to try it sometime, you won't be sorry.

You can order some here, if you don't have a Caribou nearby.
