Now as most of you know I have been dealing with this food addiction issues and one of the things I am looking at changing is my cravings for sweets (sugar!) and giving into those cravings. In all of my reading recently, and I apologize I can’t find the exact website, it talked about when craving something sweet, replace it with a piece of fruit or a flavored tea, so I decided to give it a whirl.
I have been a fan of David’s Tea for about a year now and although coffee is my first love, a few months ago I made the switch to tea for my afternoon pick-me-up, or a herbal tea usually before bed. For the last month and a bit, whenever I am craving something sweet I replace it with a cup of tea and it HAS WORKED! I manage to trick my brain! LOVE IT!
Ever since I was little I have been ADDICTED to Root Beer soda, in fact anything root beer flavored and I would eat it. So, when I received David’s Tea email telling me about their “Carnival Collection” and I saw a “Root Beer Float” flavored tea I was curious, so when they launched a week ago, off I went. I have yet to experience poor customer service in any location I go into so when I was smelling the collection a recommendation was made to try the Root Beer Float tea in the form of an Iced Tea Latte. I WAS HOOKED, it seriously tastes better than the real thing!
The tea itself is made up of cinnamon, black tea, white chocolate, sarsaparilla, safflower petals and natural flavoring. I steep about 2 tsp is 1.5 water, mix in a little almond milk, pour over ice cubes and enjoy my little cup of yummy! SO GOOD! If you are a closet root beer lover, but don’t want all the sugar in a can of pop, give this a whirl, I promise you won’t be disappointed!
