Healthy and yummy?! A foodie's holy grail!

This lovely advice comes to me via the cap of my Honest Mate, a scrumptious cold tea drink from Honest Tea. Besides giving pretty good advice, this stuff is pretty tasty. I like to compare it to Snapple but with a much more home-brewed taste to it, and much better for you. I tried the Agave Mate, which is exactly what you would think of when I say a cold tea..it's a very Earl Grey kind of taste. I also tried the Tropical Mate and let me tell you, love it! It has the same home-brewed taste but with a little splash of tropical flavor, sort of mango-ey, which is my fave! As a coffee fiend (if I don't have my French Vanilla in a travel mug on my morning commute, all hell breaks lose), I like that these teas have about 1/6 the caffeine of coffee..since I get so much in the mornings, I like to cool it during the day so I don't get jittery. The line is also certified organic by the USDA, very reassuring..plus when there are about 4 ingredients, the first of which is purified water I know what I'm drinking and I can feel good about it. They are high in antioxidants and low in calories and sugar..but don't worry there is "just a tad" of sweetness to the drinks, not overbearing but just enough to make it yummy.
