What Your Favorite Drink Says About You

Did you know that your drink says all kinds of things about you? Well, it does. Beverages are notorious for telling everyone everything — and yet nothing — when you walk into a room.

But that's not necessarily a bad thing. Drinks are just like accessories: You hold them, fuss with them, and rely on them over and over again. Whether it's the green juice you nurse all morning or your afternoon lemonade, a drink represents a choice, and all of your choices add up to you.

To clear up any misconceptions once and for all, we joined forces with Tazo® Iced K-Cup® pods to round up and analyze five go-to drinks. So the next time yours talks about you, you'll know exactly what it's revealing.

Green Juice
When you walk into the room with your greener-than-green juice, everyone feels better. Brighter, more awake — it's as if they were drinking it themselves. Come to think of it, where did you get that?

Iced Tea
Tea is a drink of subtlety and nuance. Drinking it says things like, "I taste things you can't. I know things you don't." And, while it can take considerable effort to make, Tazo® Iced Passion® K-Cup® pods — made with hibiscus flowers and herbs — cut the brewing process down to about a minute.

Cucumber Water
You just had to do it, didn't you? You had water and thought, No, this life-giving liquid is not enough. You thought about lemon, but that's for amateurs. So you got out a cucumber, sliced it up, and let it all sit for hours until your water was perfect. Can we have some?

Cold Brew
Even if you don’t know why coffee is brewed cold, you like that somebody took the time to do it. It shows someone cares — not just about coffee but temperature itself. Distinctions like these make you believe that all is right with the world, and when there's a cold-brew coffee in your hand, it is.

You probably can't get enough of Instagram. Who can? Like us, you’re in love with the idea of things — and that’s what lemonade is. It’s all our hopes about what summer is, has been, and will be. Because, really, who doesn't love impossibly high standards?
