Every year, when Halloween has passed, I would start looking forward to Christmas. This year is even more so because I will be having my Christmas with my boyfriend (BF) and this is going to be our very first Christmas together! Other than that, there is also an all-time reason for loving Christmas - Toffee Nut Latte from Starbucks!
This cup of magical beverage has been my favourite Starbucks drink since I entered University. It is a seasonal drink of Starbucks and it only appears after Halloween and before New Year, which is the time when Starbucks uses its Christmas design cups.
Strictly speaking, Toffee Nut Latte is not a coffee drink. It has caffeine in there, but the whole point of this drink is the very rich cream that can allow you to skip lunch if you have it in the morning, the sweetness in taste and fragrant of toffee that gives you some indescribable satisfaction, the graphics on the cup that reminds you of the arrival of Christmas and numerous celebration with your loved ones and the warmth from "extra hot" request that makes you feel so lucky when you walk around the chilly open air holding the cup in your hands.
When I first had that drink, I fell in love with it, and I wondered how great it would be if I can walk on the street with my lover's arms aroud my shoulder and we would talk, laugh and share a large up of Toffee Nut Latte on a perfect Christmas Day. However, since BF doesn't really drink coffee unless it becomes the last resort, I think I will still have a perfect Christmas with him - just about Toffee Nut Latte. I guess I will drink enough before I fly there that I won't even want this cup of perfection anymore.
It is also a part of my university memory. I remember that during winter term, I would also grab a cup of Toffee Nut Latte before class and it gives me the energy to survive through lectures even in the cold winter mornings.
After all the waiting since October, I finally had my first cup of Toffee Nut Latte this year and it is so satisfying!! Let's welcome our lovely Christmas!!
