I made it through an undergraduate degree and I never liked coffee.
I made it through my Masters and I never liked coffee.
I am working on my PhD and I still don't like coffee.
I do LOVE tea though. Tea is happy. I love hot tea and iced tea. I love green tea, herbal tea, black tea, and sweet tea.
When I was 12, I got to go spend about two weeks with my grandparents in West Virginia for the summer. In the evenings, Grandmommy would make a cup of hot tea and we would work on a puzzle. At the time, I had to have milk and sweetener to like black tea. Tea represents simple pleasures and stolen moments of bliss.
Now, I love a cup (or giant mug) of black tea.
But sometimes it is hot outside...like 100 degrees in Texas. I spend a lot of time at Starbucks. I am a graduate student. Sometimes I can't study at home. It is just too quiet. So I go to Starbucks so it is loud and I have something to tune out. I love to get a Starbucks Shaken Passion Iced Tea Lemonade. It is so refreshing. I like it sweetened or unsweetened.
The thing is it is Starbucks, so it is expensive. I decided to make my own version of this refreshing goodness at home.
Hence, we have:
Knockoff Passion Shaken Iced Tea Lemonade
Make up some travel cups ahead of time and grab it on the go before you leave the house.
