Seattle: (the first) Starbucks
And I kind of like Starbucks.
1912 Pike Pl
Seattle, WA 98101
* It's a tourist trap.
Of course, the entire time I was in line I fretted over what to order. It was hot out, so I wanted something iced. I get sick every time I have a Starbucks Soy Chai Latte (not sure why!), so that was out. I don't like coffee. And I certainly didn't want to get a plain old iced tea. Starbucks iced tea is really good, mind you, but it wasn't special enough for this occasion.
This drink, though, was SUPER good. I was surprised, especially because I had never ordered it before. It was sweet-but-not-too-sweet, and tasted like honey over ice cream, somehow. But in tea form. Honey over ice cream is a taste I have been searching for since I turned vegan, and I was delighted to find it in this most unexpected of places. Props to Starbucks!
Now, muffins, here's the exciting part: this post has a part two. In the second part, I'm taking you to the Starbucks that Seestor works at and giving you not only all the insider info on what ingredients are vegan, but also a recipe for a super fantastic drink that you can order at any Starbucks.
Try not to wet your pants with excitement until after you drink this drink.
