Healthy & inexpensive way to flavor drinking water!

Sunday, June 29, 2014

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


Over the last few years, I have shared this idea numerous times here at SP.

Each summer, as our days. in the shadow of the Rockies, grow increasingly warmer, I use this idea more & more. I believe it to be something that others might like to try.

A good 99% of the time, I like to drink water plain --- straight from the tap. However, I enjoy adding a bit of a twist when drinking iced water. By simply adding one or two herbal teabags (the choices seem limitless) to a gallon of water, I am able to enjoy flavored water at very little expense. Once served over ice - the melting ice cubes dilute the drink leaving just a hint of flavoring.

I find drinking flavored water made this way to be refreshing without the "iffy" quality, &/or the expense, of pre-flavored water or other water flavorings.

emoticon for stopping by & I truly do hope that you find this idea useful on several levels.

God bless!

    I like to set a pitcher of water out in the sun with a couple of herbal tea bags or plain tea bags in it. Sometimes I add sliced lemons or limes to it as well. As the sun warms it, the flavor developes. When it has flavoured to how I want it, then I place it in the fridge to get cold. yum

    A friend of mine adds a few slices of fruit or a few sprigs of fresh mint in a pitcher of ice water for a slight flavor

    Great idea for DIY flavored water!

I like round slices of lemon and cucumber in my water. Like "Spa Water".

    Great idea. I love plain water too, but get a little bored with it sometimes. I have a ton of peppermint tea. I should try it!

    I do that, and put fresh mint from my garden in for variety.

    Another way to flavor water is make a big pitcher and add some fruit. I found this out when I was in Sweden a few years ago and have been adding a few pieces of fruit to my water ever since.

    I learned to drink water by putting a lemon in it. I've bought the flavored waters, the powders to flavor the water, etc. It can get expensive, and the tastes can be either really good or really bad. I like the idea of the herbal teas. Thanks.

    Great idea! I hadn't thought about doing that. I'm going to try that, and I'm also going to pick some apple mint from my hard and use that, too.
