My New Sweet Tea

I was raised on sweet tea, and it is by far my favorite beverage. I love sweet tea, but I do have a little problem with the "sweet" part because of the calories. At times I have tried artificial sweeteners, but was never satisfied with those, and I have tried drinking my tea unsweetened, but that just doesn't cut it for a Southern girl. I really WANT my tea sweet, but I don't NEED all the calories from the sugar, and now I have finally found the product that solves that dilemma for me.



This Lipton Tea and Honey is my new favorite sweet tea. An 8 ounce glass has only 5 calories, and it is a super good sweet tea. My favorite flavor is this Iced Black Tea with Lemon, but it comes in several other choices that are also very good. There are flavors like Mango Pineapple, Peach Apricot, and Blackberry Pomegranate in the pitcher size packages. There are no artificial sweeteners in this tea, only honey for the sweetener. The tea is made from real tea leaves and has a wonderful taste.

These pitcher packages come with 6 packets that each make 1 quart of tea, or you can choose the to-go packages that have 10 individual packets.


The to-go packets are designed to be mixed with a 16.9 ounce bottle of water.


These are handy just to carry in a purse or tote bag so you can have them anytime. The to-go packets come in all the same flavors as the pitcher size package plus two more, strawberry acai and blackberry currant.


I am so happy to have found this product so that I can enjoy my sweet tea without all the sugar calories.

This product review is based on my own opinions, and I have not been compensated in any way for writing this post. The Lipton folks have never heard of me, but I sure love their tea.

  7. I'll be buying this for sure as I have had the same problem. I love Sweet Tea and I'm from the North but we called it Sunshine Tea and it had to be sweet! Thank you so much! It's going on my grocery list for sure! I do have honey in my hot tea so why didn't I think of that? A day late and a dollar short! You're so helpful, Anita!
