Stopped by Starbucks today after getting groceries for the week. I am a sucker for iced tea lemonade. There is nothing better to me in summer or winter. I often mix my own by using black tea mixed with either lemon tea or sugar lemonade mix. I haven’t found my perfect blend yet but I am enjoying trying.

This one tastes like a mild black tea, with sweet lemonade. It is quite sweet. I wish they didn’t make this one so sweet but they use syrup so it is hard to modify.

I am going to be enjoying this one all summer long. Its always better when someone else makes it for you!

You can just ask for it without the syrup, right? I swear I did that once. My favourite is actually asking for equal parts all three teas, so it would end up being 1/4 lemonade, 1/4 green, 1/4 black, and 1/4 passionfruit.

Your 1/4 mix sounds really good, I will have to try that. I can ask for it without the syrup but then it is not sweet enough. It needs like only half a pump of syrup, but it is really hard to get the barista to do that.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
