Review: I know I said I was cutting down on caffeine and coffee, but I have had to stay awake for reasons both self-determined and avalanched so I’m jumping back off the wagon for a week or so. At least until things even out with all the projects I have on my plate. Call me weak, but body tremors be damned… I need to stay awake for just one more hour… every hour… every night… er… morning… Sometimes a hot cup of coffee just won’t do though.

Growing up, I was only exposed to pre-sweetened iced tea from powdered mixes, so you can imagine my surprise when I was out in the world on my own and ordered my first iced tea from a restaurant. It is with real compassion and empathy that I feel every southern tourist’s pain when they find out that us midwesterners don’t sweeten our tea by default.

I’ve grown to like the slightly spiced taste of iced tea (peppermint is my favorite) and Caribou Coffee’s adds a barely noticeable fruit taste to the mix. This stuff is great for a hot Chicago summer day and has an ample amount of caffeine to keep my eyes open without wedging toothpicks in my ocular crevices.

I still prefer coffee though… Maybe I should make a pot.
