Celestial Seasonings instant herbal packets
This week, we got a free sample* of Celestial Seasonings tea in the mail! The packet pictured above is an instant herbal mixture, sweetened with stevia. It's quite a small packet (perhaps 1/2 teaspoon or so) and makes two cups of iced tea when added to water.
We added the powder to an almost-full bottle of water. I let Yehoshua shake the bottle for me.
I don't usually like the instant herbal tea mixtures I've tasted, but this one was wonderful! It was slightly sweet and had a great berry flavor! I took one sip and told Yehoshua, "Oh, you're going to love this!" And he did. He drank most of the tea, until I took the bottle from him and said the rest was for me!
The next day, he asked me to make more of that red tea for him. ;) I told Joshua, "I know why they send out free samples to people. Now I want to buy some of that instant tea! And I would have never bought it without first tasting how yummy it is!" :)
But, I still have lots of pregnancy tea, so I don't really foresee myself actually buying instant tea that I don't need. I thought about getting some for Yehoshua, to use as a special treat or reward, but I doubt I could keep myself from drinking it all!
Have any of you seen this instant tea in stores, or tried a sample of it? If so, I'd love to hear what you thought! :)
*I've been regularly checking Wal-mart's free sample page, since they usually have 4-6 different free samples posted there. Right now, all I see is one for NutraSweet, which I would never use -- but in a few days, they should add more. I have the link saved in my favorites folder and just check back once or twice a week. :)
