I went down town to eat lunch with my friends, and then we headed to find tea! I mean, really- why not find tea, lol. My friends said I was easy to please on this trip. I said of course, give me tea, and a photo moment and I am happy. You throw in good food and laughter and I am a happy camper!!
We looked at Google to see what tea places were close and what looked good and we saw Coffee & Tea Zone. I thought an Iced Chai sounded good since it was 92 out.
They had several choices of flavors- Tahitian Vanilla, East India Spice, Green Tea, and Wild Raspberry. I asked what was the most popular and he said East India Spice, so I went with that one.
My friend went for her favorite Matcha and had the bubbles added. Since I knew I was going out for bubble tea later tonight, I went without the bubbles.
This was more a frozen chai then iced, but I thought that made it better.!
I purchased this chai at a scratch and dent store. I love a good deal! .75 was way to good a price to pass up.
I mixed it with an almond milk. I have to say I was NOT a fan. I am finding more and more that Chai from concentrate is NOT for me!! I found it sweet and not spicy. Also weak, and weak in a bland way- I know you are to add half chai and half milk, however I added more chai and I could not get the flavor up.
I tried to enjoy my chai while watching Christmas movies with my cat. I enjoyed my cat, Christmas movies, but I did not even finish the chai. Glad I only paid .75 for the chai.

I purchased this 40 oz Hyrdo flask. I love it. It works a lot better than my Yeti. I feel that it really keeps things cold. I wonder if I purchased a bad Yeti. Anyway, I love this Hydro Flask.
I went online and purchased some vinyl stickers. I would NOT recommend vinyl stickers for mugs/jugs/flasks....even though they say they work. Within in a few weeks letters were coming off. The vinyl stickers did not hold up to washing, even thought I was only hand washing.
We have a FREE laser printer at our local college. So, I headed over there one Saturday to laser engrave my flask. Now, I don't have to worry about the stickers coming off.
We set up the design on the computer. I twas very scientific...I let the computer lab guy so all the math.
In less than 10 minutes in the laser machine, I had my mug completed. Totally thrilled with the way it turned out. I recommend seeing if there is a local college near you that offers this free service.
I now have my favorite things on this mug, my love of Jesus, tea, travel, and a moose....
