My favorite cousin and his wife are expecting their first child in September, so this past weekend I loaded up the car once again to travel home, this time to celebrate with a branch of my family that I rarely see. Even though it meant spending a good portion of my weekend trapped in the car I wouldn't have missed this baby shower for the world. Not only did I have the chance to spend the evening with my cousin and his wife, a rare occurrence these days since they've gone and moved to Michigan, but I also had got to catch up with my aunt and uncle who I haven't seen in years.
The trip home was a short one, but we still managed to pack in a full weeks worth of visiting and site-seeing, including a trip to Jurassic Quest on Sunday to see the dinosaurs and a quick stop at the Pink Elephant Antique Mall and the Twistee Treat Diner on Monday. It was a busy weekend and I'm glad to be out of the car and home relaxing.
Since I was off galavanting across the states again I thought I'd share another of my bottled tea discoveries in a road trip review. Today I have a fabulous bottled sweet tea from Third Street that I discovered at Whole Foods a few weeks ago. What I really love about this tea, other than the eye-catching tiger on the bottle (which is pretty bad ass if you ask me) is that the base tea is quite different than what you normally see in a bottled black tea. It's a Nilgiri tea from India that has just a hint of spice and is sweetened with organic fair trade cane sugar. It's very uniquely flavored tea, one that manages to really push past what most people have come to expect a bottled tea to taste like. I can't wait to try out a few of the flavored varieties that Third Street has to offer, so it looks like I'll be making another trip to Whole Foods sometime soon.
Would I order this again? Absolutely! Sometimes I still crave sweet tea and this is the perfect option for me since it has significantly less sugar than many other bottled teas on the market.
Where to Purchase
I found these at Whole Foods but you may be able to find them at other major retailers.
