Some of us like to start the day with a fresh-brewed cup of coffee, some of us with tea. I can go either way, although I have to admit I don’t make very good coffee. Trader Joe’s has a nice breakfast tea that I enjoy, but I must admit having fallen into the habit of using something I never thought I would: one of those pod thingies. My across the hall neighbor gave me one that her mother sent her for Christmas, apparently having forgotten that she already had a nicer one. In one of my previous jobs we had one briefly with gratis pods until it became too popular and was cut as too frivolous an expense. I always turned my nose up to them as being horribly wasteful with those non-biodegradeable plastic pod corpses filling up our landfills and never degrading.
Then I had one.
No, it doesn’t replace my electric kettle (best purchase EVAH!) and tea bags. But it does make better coffee than I ever could and Amazon has these Chai pods that I have come to rely on as my morning beverage of choice. (my skills at making Chai make my coffee making skills look protean..) I do feel like I am clubbing a bunch of baby seals every time a toss one of those pods in the trash, but…
So what’s your favorite morning tipple? Recipes? Leave a comment..
