Other than tea, the only other beverage I really drink is water. Maybe the occasional glass of orange juice, but not really any more.
I drank a lot of soda growing up, but halfway through my freshman year in college I decided to stop. Mainly because of how unhealthy it is, but also because I realized I just want something (anything) cool and refreshing during/after a meal. That being said, ice water satisfies that. No need for the carbonation. No need for the sweetness. Even tepid water will do.
This extends to when I go out with friends to a boba tea shop or Jamba Juice in that I usually don’t get anything. As for plain brewed tea at a boba shop, I don’t find it logical to spend money on something I can easily make at home (and it’ll probably taste better and be hotter that way too).
Short post, but there’s not much too it. Drink up!
