Tea: Lipton Tea and Honey Review



and giveaway...

Yes guys and dolls. I am sneaking giveaways into other posts. It's a fun way to see if people are reading. :-)

I love iced tea! Love it. It's a refreshing change from soda and juice. My only problem is when you use drink mixers sometimes they are way too sweet or use too many artificial sweeteners.

Enter Lipton Tea and Honey! I'm sure you've seen the commercials that say something about refreshing and natural and blah blah blah. Let me set the record straight. This stuff is good! It's just sweet enough and the fruit flavors are really good and aren't over powering. You know how sometimes a drink will be "mango flavored" and it tastes like you've been decked by a mango? Well this isn't like that at all.The fruit flavors are light and natural. Like real fruit (shame but it had to be said!)

Lipton Tea and Honey is also surprisingly low in calories. Now this is one of those moments where the small print can get you. The package says that Lipton Tea and Honey is only 5 calories per 8oz serving. What's wrong with that? Well one packet makes a 16oz bottle. So what it should say is that Lipton Tea and Honey is 10 calories. Which honestly isn't bad at all! Especially considering the calories in your favorite 12oz soda.

My favorite part about Lipton Tea and Honey is how perfectly sweet it is. I'm not someone who likes to feel like they are drinking sugar water. I'm also delusional enough to be on a health kick every now and then. This has just the perfect amount of natural sweetness. I don't feel like I am deprived of sweet at all. Also unlike artificial sweeteners there is NO funny aftertaste and the result is a very smooth tea. It has a bit of that bitter bite you expect when you drink tea but the sweetness and fruit totally balance it out.

But why take my word for it? Use the rafflecopter below and enter to win one of 5 sets of 3 packs! That's right. 5 of you will get to try this for yourselves and then you can tell me if it's any good. I'm limiting this giveaway to the US only. Mainly because I'm not the one sending out the prizes. You have until August 31 at midnight to enter. Good luck!

  4. I've never liked coffee, but it's rare that I find a tea I don't like. I love that tea has so many different possible flavor combinations and can be enjoyed hot or cold.

  10. I prefer coffee in the mornings and tea in the evenings. I take my tea sweeter than coffee, and I love to have a cuppa in the evenings to unwind.
