Starbucks Heals

I’ve been under the weather for the last 3 days. This afternoon the hubby suggested Starbucks (oh the shock), so we stopped in and I ordered a hot green tea. The girl behind the counter said, “It’s hot out, why do you want a hot tea?”

“I’m sick”, I said with a shrug.

“Ah, well in that case, do you want something that will help you feel better?”

So I agreed. What resulted was very interesting, but just perfect for a sore throat. It was steamed lemonade with 2 bags of Refresh tea. The warm lemonade was a soothing, sweet alternative and the mint in the tea acted as a menthol cooling agent. Quite unique…not for everyone, but it was perfect for the way I was feeling.
