Sickness Saga Part 2: Becoming a medicine baller

~Today’s a better day, not as stuffy and not coughing as much. Does that mean I’m finally on the mend?! God I hope so -_-

Earlier this week I was okay enough to run errands around town before meeting some friends. In the middle of errand running, I decided to treat myself to a rare trip to Starbucks to try the elusive ‘medicine ball’, which is claimed to be the go-to drink to cold and flu sufferers. I first heard about the medicine ball from a friend of mine a few months ago and was curious to see if it really does make you feel better if you have a cold.

The medicine ball is comprised of Jade Citrus Mint green tea, Peach Tranquility herbal tea, hot water, steamed lemonade and honey. I was a little put off by the steamed lemonade part, it didn’t sound that appealing. I was glad to prove myself wrong when I tried it, it was actually pretty decent! You get pulled inbetween a battle of sweet and sour flavors from the honey and lemonade, and the slight bitterness of the green tea steps in to even things out. Glad to know the $4 Grande wasn’t disapointing. This once secret menu item has gained so much popularity that its now on its regular menu known as Honey Citrus Mint tea.

If you haven’t tried it before, I recommend you do and tell me what you think!
