hmm i think i might plan to use herbal teabags, and tisanes. ideally, you might be able to let the bag steep in the water for a few hours, maybe overnight. sweeten as needed, but i have found that some do not need sweetening (for my taste).

True Lemon is good. They have a great raspberry lemonade flavor we all like. I haven't checked out the lipton green tea and honey flavored packets yet. My husband loves to make regular lipton tea (using tea pot, then adding 6 pouches) let sit in hot water for 15 min, then take bags out. Let cool, then add to a gallon jug with about 1/2 cup of sugar (if needed) and then fill the rest of the jug with cold water.
I've actually started getting a stomach ache anytime after I drink anything containing aspertame. Usually if I want to add flavor to my water, I use a lemon and some truvia or stevia. I've found that even the tiniest bit gives it the best flavor. If I'm running short on time, I just grab some all natural lemon juice at the store and use that. I'd much rather use lemons, but it's an option.

Get some of those unsweetened Koolaid packets and add your own sugar or honey.
I would love to find them because I am allergic to additives commonly found with artificial sweeteners, but the only one I found was the TrueLemon someone mentioned.
I believe Mio has artificial sweeteners in it, too.

look for True Lemon, or can you take those little plastic lemons and limes along?

I know Lipton makes tea packets. Also, there are those little Mio squirt bottle type things. I've never had them, so I can't really speak one way or the other for them; just that I know they exist!

I am going on a mission trip in a week and want something sweet to put in my drink. I've seen other questions similar to this, but they have to do with adding fruit into your drink- which is a great idea, but it's hard on a mission trip. And yes, I know about Crystal Light but most of them have artificial sweeteners. I know this is hard, but does anyone have an answer? BTW- I can have caffeine. Thanks!
