So summer sun beckons an icy refreshing drink and usually my go to Starbucks drink is a Vanilla Chai Tea frappuccino with a shot of espresso, however, when entering my local Starbucks I saw an advertisement for Teavana Shaken Iced Tea. Now I love iced tea so the curious kitten in me needed to try it.
Out of the 4 available teas I played it safe and ordered the Iced Shaken Hibiscus Tea.

So starting on Flava … sorry *coughs* I mean flavour: this was a plain Hibiscus iced tea but to my palate, it had a hint of blueberry. This was a pleasant surprise and highly enjoyable on the somewhat hot day here in the UK. It was filling, flavourful and refreshing. My only issue was that the ice as it melted watered down the flavour of the tea, something that cannot be helped of course but if I were to order it again (which I probably will) I can just request less ice. A definite recommendation for those wanting to try something cold from Starbucks and if you don’t like Hibiscus there’s Green Tea, Black Tea or Peach and some other Teavana teas to try. So grab and enjoy =^.^=
