I absolutely LOVED dipping my food in sauces-and when I started my weight loss regimen and was writing my food down, I realized just how much sauce I used, like barbecue, ranch dressing, sweet and sour sauce, and how it took very little of it before the calories would add up. To give my food the flavor I was looking for, I started experimenting with seasonings, and that has kept me from using dips with my food.

I really like the flavor of this tea -- it's good hot or cold, and is a great way for me to get some extra glasses of water in. It has a nice, strong, flavor -- a little bit tart, a little bit naturally sweet.
Sometimes I just put a bag in my bottle of cold water -- that's enough to flavor the water enough to help me drink it!
Other Celestial Seasonings flavors are great, too!
