However, sometimes the office A/C is on just a little too high and I require a little more warming up than usual so I go for a nice warming tea. My favourite lately is called "Revitalize" by the brand PUKKA that has many different flavours, most with cleansing properties and a little kick of some type of spice! Revitalize is a warm tea consisting of organic cinnamon, cardamom and ginger meant to "warm & invigorate", as the package reads. You would truly think this tea would be better suited for a cold winter night cuddled up on the couch with a warm blanket - but, sometimes our office resembles the same type of weather! I love the smell of this tea and furthermore the taste - anything with ginger and cinnamon is ok in my books and helps the tummy as well!
So maybe the next time you feel like going for a hot chocolate in the extreme heat of summer reach for one of these delicious Pukka teas - and if you don't sit in an air-conditioned office all day (lucky you) then maybe over a little ice with some almond milk would be refreshingly just as delicious!
Oh, and obviously no insulin required for this little treat!
