Starbucks came out with a new Teavana. Iced shaken hibiscus tea with pomegranate pearls. I just had to try it. Even though I had to walk all the way to the plaza to get it. While the rest of the gang were sitting comfortably at our usual coffee place, having their usual quiche and coffee, and chatting away. Normally, I'd stay put, but (1) I love tea more than coffee, (2) iced shaken hibiscus tea, (3) iced shaken hibiscus tea with pomegranate, and (4, the clincher!) iced shaken hibiscus tea with pomegranate pearls. There.
Z agreed to come along and keep me company. She had her iPod and she had her strawberry banana smoothie (from the coffee shop). She was set.
On the way back, we spotted these pretty purple flowers by the roadside. They were just there, so pretty against a bright, yellow wall. I just had to stop and try to get a shot. I went for iced shaken tea and got back with the tea (so good, by the way!) and a snap of these lovely flowers. I love it when life throws you a little something extra.
