Yesterday afternoon I stopped in Gelatiamo for a delicious gelato to enjoy in the sunshine. While there I was salivating at the smell of the cinnamon bread they had there but when I saw that it was $12 a loaf I decided to pass. Anyway, since then I've had a cinnamon craving. Sipping my coffee at my desk this morning I thought that if I were to go to Starbucks I could sprinkle some delicious cinnamon into my coffee. The drawback to this being that I didn't feel compelled to walk a block to buy coffee when I get free coffee in the building. Necessity being the mother of invention, however, genius struck. We have cinnamon apple herbal tea in the kitchens in the office, so I grabbed a tea bag and just like that a new drink was born - coffee tea.
I don't know why it never occurred to anyone before to join forces of the worlds two most widely consumed beverages, but truth be told it was a little funky and I don't plan to attempt that particular combination again. I remain undaunted though. Just because the cinnamon apple tea didn't work doesn't mean that Earl Grey won't. Some day when I really need to double down on the caffeine I might give it a try.
