I would imagine many of you are already avid ice tea drinkers. I am not - never have been. For years and years I have gone out to lunch and my friends order all varieties of iced tea - but not me. Water please! Or if it's a very special day I might have a lemonade! Pink lemonade is my favorite.
BUT, during the summer months my gym offers free iced tea if you buy their special glass. It's hard plastic with a screw on lid and a very sturdy straw, and it must hold about 24 ounces. I thought about it last year but since I'm NOT an iced tea drinker I figured it would be a waste of $15 for a glass I would never fill. OH, you can get black tea, green tea or berry tea (and I actually do love green tea and many varieties of herbal tea). Last week after 40 minutes working out on the strength equipment AND 1 hour of Pilates on the reformer, I decided to treat myself to an iced tea. Heck, if I didn't like it, I still had a pretty cool glass.
I LOVED IT! Crushed ice and a rosy red drink inside that totally made my day. So much so that I went back the next day. And I wanted to go to the gym on Thursday just so I could get my iced tea, but I was hurting so much from Tuesday & Wednesday that I decided to see what I could do at home. I had a Red Raspberry tea and a lovely tea pot that Tom bought me on one of our visits to Duluth, MN that I've never even used. A perfect solution - berry tea right here at home. And the most exciting news is that I have other teas I can try.
Who knew a person could get so excited over iced tea. Tomorrow I am back to the gym and you better believe I'll be bringing my new best friend with me for a fill!
