For health reasons I've been trying to cut back on the amount of coffee I drink. There are two problems: I drink a lot of coffee; and most other beverages are on my forbidden list as well -- tea, milk, anything with citrus or chocolate, and soda. Those two issues make it very hard to cut back.
I decided that I just can't go cold turkey. So, I've been drinking one cup of coffee in the morning, lots of water, and an occasional cup of tea. I spotted a new tea at Giant Eagle when I was looking for something with berries in it. Berries are on the o.k. list -- in fact they are on the good list -- so I figured the little bit of black tea in this tea mix would be partially negated by the berries (probably not true in actuality, but I can wish).
I am very surprised by how much I like this tea. I'm not usually one to enjoy flavored hot teas, especially fruity ones, but this tea is so good. It's not the slightest bit bitter, and the fruits make it naturally sweet. My mom recently received a gift of premium tea and an infuser from Teavona, a gourmet tea shop, and while it was very good, I think this tea from Lipton is just as good.
I was surprised by the technology of this tea's bag. It is shaped like a pyramid and the material is more like fabric than the standard tea bag paper. Very cool.
There are several flavors besides the Bavarian Berry, so I look forward to trying them all. The cost was a little high at Giant Eagle -- $3.50, but I saw it at my discount grocer for $2.50 a box.
