There are plenty of ways to get into the Christmas spirit. You can unearth the tree from the bodega and put it out on display. You can play Mariah Careyâ€™s â€śAll I Want for Christmas Is Youâ€ť on full blast and sing along. Or you can just think about all the glorious food youâ€™re going to be eating over the holidays.
But for the Belgians, the best way to get in the mood for Christmas is by filling the air with the delightfully sweet aroma of speculoos! Itâ€™s been their tradition to bake batches of these spiced shortcrust biscuits as a special Christmas treat for the whole family.
If you think speculoos is the perfect way to kick off the Christmas festivities, you need to try out Sereniteaâ€™s new line of Christmas drinks. You get to enjoy the distinct caramelized, ginger bread-like flavor of speculoos in every sip!
Sip on three new speculoos drinks at Serenitea this Christmas
Before Serenitea came into the picture, coffee was all we knew. But all that changed when they opened their first branch in 2008, introducing us to the concept of brewing tea using an espresso machine. Since then, weâ€™ve been hooked on their customizable tea concoctions!
To make the Christmas season extra cheery, Serenitea has created three new drinks, all generously infused with Lotus Biscoff Cookie Butter (itâ€™s sweet, smooth, creamy, and made from original Biscoff cookies!)
The Taro Speculoos (â‚±195 for a large cup) is made with their bestselling Taro Lover, a helping of Lotus Biscoff spread, and bits of cookie dough, all combined into a rich slushie. This drink may be indulgent but itâ€™s the holiday season and youâ€™re allowed to treat yourself sans the feeling of guilt!
For the many matcha fans out there, Serenitea didnâ€™t forget about you. By taking their popular Matcha Green Tea Slush and mixing it with a dollop of Lotus Biscoff Spread and pieces of cookie dough, theyâ€™ve created a whole new matcha drink for you to sip on! Called the Matcha Speculoos (â‚±195 for a large cup), itâ€™s the perfect mix of sweet and bitter flavors.
Then thereâ€™s the Butter Rum Speculoos (â‚±195 for a large cup), a drink made with butter and rum flavors along with a serving of Lotus Biscoff spread. Buttered rum is a popular beverage come fall and winter in Europe–top that with speculoos and youâ€™ve got yourself the perfect Christmas drink!
You can try out these new speculoos drinks at any of Sereniteaâ€™s 45 branches around the country until January 15, 2017.
