morning me-time with caffeine
This post was sponsored by Starbucks as part of an Influencer Activation. I received compensation and complimentary products to facilitate my review.
When you are a working mom, caffeine is an entire food group. I generally take my coffee black, my tea boring because I don’t ever have extra time for anything that doesn’t come directly from my Keurig. That’s why I’m pretty excited about the new TAZO® Chai Latte K-Cup® pods. My kids are being positively affected as well, because when mom doesn’t get great tasting caffeine in the A.M. she feels a bit, well, the shirt says it all.
Every morning, I have a bit of me-time. If I have to get up before sunrise, so be it, but I need a few minutes to start my day before the kids, before opening my work email (oh, Lord help me) and before accessing the mess that is the laundry room. Generally this me-time consists of sitting outside by the pool, enjoying our Palm Springs view. Some mornings I do yoga, some I meditate, some I read, but I always have caffeine in arms reach. My husband isn’t allowed out and neither are the kids or even the dog – and I don’t feel one bit guilty about it. = )
I drink TAZO® tea almost exclusively, but usually in bag form. Chai tea is one of my favorites from them because I love black tea and I love their spice blend, especially cardamom. Cardamom everything in my home. With the TAZO® Chai Latte K-Cup® pods you get that same smooth chai tea flavor, but also a sweetened dairy packet for the latte experience.
Step one, empty the sweetener into your mug. Step two, run the TAZO® Chai Latte K-Cup® Pods into your mug. Stir and enjoy! No need to reach for the fridge or pantry for creamer and sugar… I love that. Plus? The milk and honey sweetener tastes absolutely amazing!!
Steeped in 5,000 years of Indian history, chai tea is a black tea blend that is part sweet, part spicy. The spices are a blend of cinnamon, ginger and cardamom, rounded out with sweet vanilla for a balanced, brewed tea. I cannot think of a more perfect tea and my husband agrees. When I met him, he was drinking chai everyday and I loved that about him! Good taste.
