While visiting a coffee shop in Kansas City, Missouri, today, President Obama ordered himself a regular iced tea — but, you know, a manly iced tea. An employee at Parkville Coffee offered the president a lavender iced tea, to which he replied, “I’m not confident enough to order that.”  I suppose he could have meant he had a bad stomach when it comes to species in the mint family and he’s not confident he won’t shit all over Air Force One. But this sounded to me like lavender iced tea is, you know, girly.

Am I over-thinking this? Probably. But what I really want to know is, how will this focus group with lavender supporters? [BuzzFeed] [Image of lavender via Shutterstock]
