Coffee, tea, or . . .
Wait a minute!
Is there a rebel in our midst?
Still, there’s nothing hotter than a grown man drinking a steamy beverage from a cute mug.
Gives new meaning to the term “mug shot” doesn’t it? :)
☕ CUPPA OF CHOICE: “Earl Grey, preferably Twinings of London or Bigelow, with no sugar, no milk, no lemon. However, now that it’s springtime, I’m looking forward to firing up my iced tea brewing machine – and Stash makes some awesome teas perfect for ice, like their Red, White, and Blueberry tea!”

☕☕ Enjoy Matt’s tea poem (can you guess what kind of tea he’s referring to?):
touches light the ginger flower;
savors third steeping

☕ CUPPA OF CHOICE: Coffee. Coffee???!!! 😳 (There’s one of them at every party.)
☕ HOT OFF THE PRESS: The 14 Fibs of Gregory K. (Arthur A. Levine Books, 2013)
☕☕ Take a sip of Greg’s, um . . . er, coffee poem (java lava?):
DAD HAS A BAD CUP OF COFFEE AT A ROADSIDE DINER….
“This tastes like mud!” my father said.
“There should have been a warning!”
I thought there was. The menu said,
“Our coffee’s ground each morning.”

We are, if nothing else, an equal opportunity hot beverage blog. :)
When you’re hot, you’re hot.
Thanks for steeping with us this month, and thanks to all the HotTEAs of Children’s Poetry for packing the heat!
See them all here. :)
