Teenage Boys and TEA

I took AJ and his friend HC to the farm on Saturday to help
with a little work (and play). 
I packed "fixins" for sandwiches
and lots of snacks, but had no soft drinks in the fridge.
We stopped by a gas station quick mart to pick-up
their choice of beverage. 
Out they came with Sweet Lemon Peace Tea! 
A few years ago, teenage boys would have never considered
RTD Tea over a Coke or Mountain Dew.
As my dear Aunt Ida said,
"It's a different world."

Is it the iced tea in the can that attracted them, or the peace symbol? :-) I had to smile when I saw this photo, are we going to revisit the 60's!
Recently we met our nepew's fiancé, who when we discussed music said she loved a group and wondered if I'd ever heard of them. The Beatles. Wish I had photos of my bedroom walls from back then to show her.

Teenagers will surprise you!

You've had a great influence on them, Linda! Coming out of the store with a can of Ready-To-Drink iced tea was second nature to AJ!

Oh, Mine Did!

I remember once in the Smokies---one of those HOT, tired, stood-in-line days of sight-seeing, and we stopped in a 7-11 for something cold to drink. There was a BIG barrel display of Lipton Lemon Tea in cans nestled in ice displayed right at the front of the store.

I think we stopped at every Quik-Stop between there and home, for more of that good cold tea.

Chris and I went tea-shopping yesterday in the POURING rain, and got several kinds: Several boxes of organic Two Leaves and a Bud, and some loose-scoop of Irish Breakfast, Earl Grey, and a lovely rich Assam, which we had a pot of (with milk) right after we got into dry clothes at home.

We were supposed to have a Lawn Tea yesterday afternoon, but I'm so glad we postponed it to next weekend, for everything outside is drenched and muddy from the downpour.

I am athinking that somebody near and dear is influencing those boys. Good job, Linda.

The boys have your good taste or it is it good marketing? Funny I'm drinking a Lipton peach/apricot iced tea now. Refreshing. Cute post.

It is indeed a "different world". I haven't heard of Peace Tea, but I am sure it must be good.

Steph said...
