Drink of the Day

I have just a second to get off a post, but am here with another public service announcement.

I have discovered... the misto. It's a drink at Starbucks I've been totally unaware of, and I've been going to Starbucks since they only sold beans! I've tried three different kinds: the tea misto (also called the London Fog, which is such a better name!), the cafe misto, and the americano misto. The drink is half Earl Grey tea, drip coffee, or americano respectively, and half steamed milk. The London Fog also has vanilla.

So, the drink is less than half the price of a latte and the americano misto is virtually indistinguishable from a latte. This is big news for me. This could revolutionize my budget! I'm kidding. I've been really good at reining in the coffee spending. But this is still huge. You hand them a five and get actual DOLLARS back, not just coinage.

The tea misto is like a perfectly doctored cup of black tea (and I prefer it with Awake, rather than Earl Grey). It's delightful and saves me the trouble of scooping in all that sugar. ;)

So go, have one, and think of me!

I'm not a Starbucks fan *ducking* mainly because I don't drink coffee. :-)

yes I love the misto!! It's a cafe au lait, but for americans since that is too confusingly similar to a cafe latte!

I had never heard of the tea misto, though. and that sounds perfect for me!! Excellent!

Congrats on the discovery! I always like to find a new love. As for Starbucks, I'm a big fan of their hot chocolate, especially when made extra dark. But then, I've never been fond of coffee.
