What you're looking at is a mixture of hot water, Italian Sweet Creme creamer, and orange pekoe & pekoe black tea.
I thought it would be good... kind of like Starbuck's Tazo Chai Tea Latte
That's what I thought.
In actuality... it sucked. I will never make this concoction again...
It's got the smell of vanilla protein weight gainer.
And it tastes like watered down, vanilla crap. I don't know what crap tastes like, but i'm sure that crap mixed with water and vanilla would taste exactly like this.
It sounded like a great idea. I thought it would be a taste of awesomeness.
But it wasn't, and it didn't.
The thing is... if I wouldn't have tried it out, I would have never known.
And I'm sure I'll try a different mixture later on. This bafoonery won't stop me from trying to make something else.
And whether we're talking about parenting, or student ministering, or youth working... we need to try new things.
Some may be great, like Starbuck's Chai Tea Latte.
Some things will be utter colossal failures, like my mixture of hot water, Italian Sweet Creme creamer, and orange pekoe & pekoe black tea.
But we have to try. AND, we have to keep trying after we fail.
So what's worked and what's failed?
