Tea of the morning…..
I am trying to change out my sweetening methods. The last area where I use artificial sweetener is in my hot tea. I thought transitioning to sugar would be easy, but boy was I wrong. I am getting an aftertaste with sugar that I don’t think I get with Splenda. It is hard to explain, but it is kind of like concentrated canned sweet tea (of which I am not really a fan). I guess it needs a few more trials. Maybe it can be fixed with less sugar. Or maybe I will just stick with the Splenda. I have tried honey (adds too much flavor) and stevia (not fond of the licorice flavor this one gives). I wish I could just drink it straight, but it just doesn’t do it for me. I guess it needs a few more trials, because the goal is to eventually cut back on the sugar, too. I suppose I could just start cutting back on Splenda and cut out the ‘middle man’ (sugar).
Anyway, this is always my breakfast staple. Love this and won’t ever be without it. When it is gone, it becomes a tea ordering emergency.
