VARITATIONS:

Try different flavored teas for a pick me up.

Celestial Seasonings True Blueberry Sweet Tea was sooo good, it was like Liquid Blueberry Pie or Blueberry Juice. Can't even tell it was tea....

Lipton French Vanilla Sweet Tea.....about the same with a little vanilla added to it. Really good too.

Lipton Green Tea with Mandarin Orange Flavor was really good!
