The other afternoon the kids and I were out grocery shopping. Our local grocer has a Starbucks inside and we usually treat ourselves to some Starbucks Love. Well, it was exceptionally hot outside and my usual hot/milky/coffee-ish drinks just wouldn’t do. I, instead, ordered a Sweet Tea.
“A Grande Sweet Tea, Please.”
“Oh, and these organic Chocolate Milks too.”
It felt weird ordering something so simple as a Grande Sweet Tea. My order is usually a bit longer with the word “Whip” in it. I wasn’t sure how the taste would favor either. I was pleasantly surprised when I sipped on it. It’s not as sweet as maybe Chick-Fil-A or McCalisters’s Tea, but it was good! I’m not sure what they did to it because I still received that rush of Caffeine Goodness I long for with my regular drinks.
In all honesty, my 17 month old stole a sip and enjoyed it so much we had a blown out fight in the Chip Aisle. Not pretty, folks. Not pretty.
I wanted to let all my readers know how great this tea is. I know when all you Starbucks Junkies go for a “fix” you don’t want something weak like tea or you’re just longing for your regular drink, but it’s Goooooooood when you’re wanting refuge from the heat!
Taste: It’s perfectly sweet, but you can still taste the “herbish” taste if you know what I mean.
Size Matters: Don’t get a Tall! They load it with ice and by the time you’re actually getting “refreshed” it’s gone and you need more. Grande is still a bit small for me, but Venti is too much.
Price: MY GOODNESS! It was a dollar and some change! Yes, it’s cheaper than your regular Mocha or Frap. If you’re pinched for pennies, this is perfect!
I have some even better news, as you finish up reading this review…….
