The Favourite Beverage
The four of us have a lot of inside jokes and ‘doing stuff’ somehow got short-formed to ‘stuffing’ so that’s what we call getting out and about enjoying activities.
Today we had a full day of ‘stuffing’ so this is one is going to be short.
Looking at the clock displaying 22:20, I looked around the hotel room to figure out what the heck I’m going to write on…iced tea it is.

After an early dinner and a rainy swim, we dried off and went out for a before-bed stroll.
The rain had subsided earlier this evening and we wanted to get the most out of our day. Heading up toward Robson Street, the boys wanted another snack and drink and to take in a bit of Vancouver night-life.
Braden could drink iced tea all day long if I let him and he wanted a cold one tonight while on our walk before bed.
That was a usual no from me to getting loaded up with caffeine right before retiring for the night...even if we were on vacation.
Down the road was Safeway and Braden kept pushing for a particular drink he likes. After hearing him out, the chosen bottle of iced tea made it to the checkout line with us.
Pure Leaf Mango Hibiscus iced tea is the perfect mix of Braden’s two favourite things and it’s herbal so it’s naturally caffeine-free. Yes it has sugar but not jacking him on anything extra was enough of a win for me and it looked super refreshing to our parched selves after our nighttime downtown walk.

I would have to agree with B that iced tea is tha’ bomb.
From consuming too much Orchard Hill as a teen to having a permanent container of Good Host in the pantry, the booze-free brew is a solid family fav. If you’re looking for a really good one, one of the best ‘home brews’ we’ve ever had (in our opinion) can be found at Bright Eye Brewing in Kamloops, B.C. and I promise you won’t be disappointed.
