Have you ever noticed how life can be defined with flavors? Think about it. Special events have a sensory interaction that when we think of it, it brings back a great memory ~ your wedding cake, a celebration dinner, a refreshing drink at the beach. You remember what it “tasted” like, what the moment felt like, who you were with, and what it was all about.
I live in North Carolina and for most of us who live in the South, if you aren’t drinking soda, then you have a weakness for Sweet Tea. A staple beverage consumed like water, its as decadent as the day is long, liquid sugar that makes it easy to lounge on the porch as you slip into your sugar crash coma. Always available and on any table, it begs for simpler times and lazy summer days. Quite simply, sweet tea defines life in the south.
Because I can’t handle that kind of sugar in my system and the reality is its just not good for us, I find myself looking for healthier options that can be equally refreshing. So this summer I’m trying out a brand new drink, Lipton Tea & Honey.
When I received my samples, I was delighted to discover that unlike other tea beverages, this one is powdered and comes in a portable packet so I can easily add it to water bottles and glasses.
I can manage the serving size easily, even watering it down to give just a hint of flavor to my ice water, and because its made from real tea and honey, it tastes great! A fan of all things berry, my favorite flavor has to be BlackBerry Pomegranite.
The basics you need to know ~
- The tea is only 5 calories per 8 oz serving
- The tea is sweetened with honey
- The tea is made from real tea leaves and real fruit flavors
- To celebrate the product announcement, Lipton is giving away a limited number of Lipton Tea & Honey samples. To receive free samples you can visit www.liptonteaandhoney.com (links to Facebook where you can enter in your address)
