This week has been incredibly busy with work. You see, I have to give in my grades for next Friday, but I am so tired with just the regular teaching stuff that correcting my 197 writing productions (ranging from 200 to 500 words… I seriously need to make these kids work less) is just killing everything happy inside of me.
So when my colleague suggested that we meet in a tea shop to motivate each other (she is a French teacher, so she knows the struggle is real), I jumped on the occasion. When she mentioned a special place where they boiled fresh chai tea, I was very excited.
I was even happier when the very nice tea-barista (is there a word for a professional tea maker? please let me know!) told me that he could make it with almond milk.
The result: a light, spicy, foamy, perfectly comforting hot drink. Not that anything would make correcting 197 copies on a nice ans snowy Saturday afternoon better, but almost.
So if you are in Montreal, I really suggest you try the Teashop, on Jean-Talon street as it is very friendly, perfect to work and has a very relaxed atmosphere. Give it a try!
