Dalgona Coffee

I kept seeing recipes for whipped coffee. I had some instant coffee so I thought I would try a recipe and just substitute the milk with half and half. Well, I can’t decide how I feel about it.

However, I recently decided to give up coffee and drink all the tea I keep buying but never seem to drink. Here are a few teas I’ve been loving and a few others I tried. Teas With Half & Half or Milk Twinings English Breakfast Tea I learned from Anglophenia that English breakfast tea with half and half (or milk or whipping cream) is delicious. I of course use two Splendas. They refer to tea with sugar and cream as a “builder’s brew.” I also learned dunking a digestive biscuit is also amazing! You can also get those digestive biscuits at World Market. Republic of Tea Strawberry Chocolate You’ve probably seen this tea on a post or two before.
