I am absolutely and totally addicted to iced tea.
Every single weekday morning for the past three or so years I have taken a little mini trek across the plaza at my office to get a nice cold 32 ounce cup of tropical iced tea from the local cafe.
This little café charges a lot for their tea, in my opinion. $1.75 a cup. I recently decided to try making my own at work with an iced tea maker, but it just isn’t the same. I don’t know why that darn paper cup with the red and white coca cola symbol just tastes so much better! I even ordered the same brand (Passport Brand, Tropical flavor), but alas, I still like it more when someone else makes it.
Still though, in an effort to save almost $9 a week and $35 a month, I am making my own. I’d say maybe once a week I give in and get a cup from the café. At least I am saving a little money right?
My question to you is this….do you drink iced tea?
What are your favorite flavors/brands?
Maybe I just need to try something new!
Speaking of new….I ventured into Teavana the other day and bought a Chocolate Peppermint tea and a Spiced Caramel Apple tea. I can say one thing about that place, though the tea is DARN good, I will never ever go back! Holy cow that place is expensive! It cost me $30 for 2 ounces of two different teas and a 1 pound bag of rock sugar. 2 ounces! That’s like 4 cups of tea maybe?
So again…..any new tea suggestions for me? Preferably brands that don’t cost an arm and a leg! Loose leaf or tea bags, doesn’t make a difference!
