Lipton's Green Tea/artificially sweetened powders-- too sweet for me

Notorious EMDB | Jul 14, 2006 07:15 PM

After seeing these individually packaged tubes of purported antioxidant goodness advertised in every magazine to which I subscribe, I thought I would give them a try, esp. if they make me actually finish my nalgene quart bottle every day. The mango & mandarin orange flavor is much too sweet in the reccomended water bottle zise (16.9 oz), but is tolerable in the full quart amount. Plus-- it needs a lot of ice.

The honey and lemon is again, too sweet at the recommended dose, but it's quite tasty at the quart size. I didn't notice that they were splenda-sweetened until after I'd bought them, so I probably won't but them again, as all the goodness the green tea does is undone by the artificial sweetener. I did drink more water this week, though, so I will have to try making iced green tea at home for taking to work with me.
