Green Tea...Shaken Not Stirred

Is it just me or is the world getting dumbed down??? I was recently gifted with a Starbucks gift card. Thanks Gail (waving !!!) and decided that even though I don't drink coffee they must have some incredible tea, right? I love tea and although I do seriously love sweet tea I am open minded to more exotic teas. :) Anyway I went into the church of coffee today and saw Shaken Tea on the menu. I'm thinking this must be some awesome creation and waited in great anticipation. I asked the guy "So, Starbucks guy, what is this amazing Shaken Tea?" And he says in all seriousness as only a supreme Starbucks barista can "It's concentrated tea, we add water and ice and then we SHAKE it..!" Ok you can figure the rest from there. I will only say that I waited til I got outside to start giggling and that mood carried on thru the rest of the day. And feeling giggly all day, that's a good thing. Oh and the tea was good.......


My painting class with Wyanne is still a WIP which I am enjoying. She asked us to relax and do something nice for ourselves before our next assignment and I decided to make a Valentine necklace. So here it is.

hahaha, You think they could have come up with a more original name but then I suppose it would be false advertising! LOL. At least it was good and made for a cheerful day
Great little charm you made there Nan!

Nan...that is too funny!!! I love tea also...have you ever tried Teavana teas?? They are pricey, but you don't use much for hot tea...they have a white chai that is spicey...and very good this time of year!!! It doesn't require any shaking to my knowledge, so even novices like you and I can brew our own!!! HA!!!!
Love your WIP~~~ Too

Hugs and Have a Great Upcoming Weekend and Valentine's Day!!
