Hello 2017

Hi guys. Long time no see.

First of all, i would like to wish you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! The past two months have been very tough for me alas the delay on the uploads and everything. Rest assured, i am okay and content and of course i would like to say THANK YOU for participating on my Giveaway last December. I enjoyed reading all your answers unfortunately some of the participants are not eligible to win because of the late submission. It would be unfair to others who already spared their time writing down answers before the due date.

I will announce the winners on my next post so stay tune.

Happy New Year 2017! May this new year brings us more prosperity, good health, and happiness! God bless xoxo!

Yours Truly 🙂

My Go To Place: Argo Tea

Do you have a favorite place to get your morning dose of caffeine or tea or breakfast or any type of snack in particular?

I do.

I used to frequent that chain of coffee with Kenny G look-a-like logo on the window. Yes, I used to worship that place like crazy. Even long before people raved about that chain, I already fell in love with their caramel macchiato and Frappuccino. I remember my favorite dose would be either caramel frap, caramel macch, tall iced latte, green tea frap, or sometimes just a regular iced coffee with milk and sugar. And when Christmas times come, I love their hazelnut latte!

Years gone by and I did not even bother on checking another place. (oops, I did fell in love with Coffee Bean! 🙂 )

When I moved to NYC, I still frequent “S” and “CB” but I developed another love for different types of coffee place too. I even had a regular café and bodega that knew exactly what I wanted in the morning — which normally my day would be started with a hot/iced coffee with milk and sugar and also hot/iced chai latte or hot/iced green tea latte.

That is until I began moving to another area and another school and another different types of work place.

During that time period, I found Argo Tea.

Well technically I knew about Argo from Whole Foods because that is where they also sell their tea products too. I tried their ginger honey tea once and I instantly got hooked. However, for $3ish per bottle it felt like a burden but then I realized; I even spent way more for that tall caramel frap I used to frequent at ‘S’. so why not I actually pay more for a better quality of tea?

As if on cue, I stumbled upon Argo’s tea store located in Columbus Circle area.

And now some of the employees are actually aware of my liking! like for instance, whenever I go to their CC branch in the evening, one of the woman who works there smiled at me and constantly said “hot or cold chocolate mint?!”. I could not help but smile back at her. LOL.

my usual favorite. small iced chocolate mint. 2% milk. earl grey tea.

 

And yes, as I am writing this one, I am sipping my favorite 🙂

Don’t worry you caffeine lovers, they also provide Illy coffee so you will definitely get your cuppa joe there as well!

other favorites? well they have bubble tea too – which sometimes I also order when I am in the mood for something different. their chai latte seems to be on point as well. they also have quite a selection of pastries so rest assured, you can have a snack there too!

I can only speak for CC location but there you will find plenty of plug-ins for your laptop/tablets and lots of chairs to sit and relax. and do not worry, there is Wi-Fi and it is fast!

p.s.: I heard that they also provide membership that will eventually score you a free drinks after certain points so do check that out!
