I have a few girlfriends in Houston who profess their love for Starbucks EVERY morning. I know, I know, I shouldn’t pass judgement. To each her own. But I will contest that whatever alternative you have at your disposal will be much more satisfying.
Yesterday running errands in the Galleria, I decided to hit up Teavana, the herbal tea store around the corner from Starbucks. I know absolutely nothing about tea blends, but I figured they could whip up a warm, yummy concoction. I told the guy, “I want something hearty and not too sweet.” He busted out the Cocoa Praline Tart blend and I was instantly sold. With no added sugar, syrups or milk, he made me a delicious chocolately tea in 5 minutes. Much better than a nonfat mocha on so many levels!
All of that being said, I opt for a bottled water over Starbucks…which is obviously healthier.Tweet this!
