I’m a hot tea kind of gal. When I’m sick that is. I don’t like iced tea. At all. The hubby however does like iced tea on occasion. But it HAS to be cold. As soon as it starts warming up he makes a face. You know the one. Like a 6 year old that was just forced to eat spinach. Cooked spinach. Me? I like cooked spinach. Most people make that face though. You know, the one the hubby makes when he drinks warm iced tea. Which I guess is just called tea.
So the hubby drinks iced tea. But in case you haven’t noticed, buying bottled iced tea is pretty much just as expensive as soda. Not to mention all the plastic bottles. Plus, like most bottled drinks anymore there are a lot of weird ingredients. Sodium Polyphosphate? What is that? Salt? And Caramel Color. Why is there caramel color? IS that because there’s no real tea in the drink. When I make tea you know what makes the “Caramel Color?” The tea bag.
So there has to be a better way. I like that the hubby drinks iced tea instead of soda, but I would prefer something a little healthier. You know, like actual tea, and maybe a little real sugar to sweeten it instead of chemicals and coloring. And this is now possible with the Capresso Iced Tea Maker.
