Thank you, Steve!

They have blueberry tea???!!! I really need to try this tea now.

I went to this website today. They do have an unsweetened version now, and other new flavors. I will need to have some now.

Bumping this because I just ordered more today. I got the diet raspberry and the diet peach. I liked the unsweetened that I got, but not as well as just brewing my own. I also tried all of the diet a while back. I think the raspberry is my favorite. Yum! I can't wait for it to arrive! really good tea, and nice to have the proceeds go to a good cause.

DingDingDing! We have a winner! The best way to get the taste you want is to brew your own. The hard part is finding the right tea (bags or bulk) that you like to start with. I like Bigelow's flavored teas because they are strong enough to brew two cups from one bag. That way when you add cubes the flavor is still there. If you like a little sweetener (I drink my iced tea straight, no sugar) you can add whatever kind you take due to dietary needs. My BIL likes the old Pink Bag stuff because he says it dissolves best in cold liquids.

Then again, my way doesn't support a noble charity...

lol about tea being noble. not in an historical/humanitarian sense.

i can't stand sweetened tea. nor tea with dairy. i love astringent, full flavoured teas.

unlike my dad and irish grandmother. they drink hot milk with a bit of tea added almost for colour.

i even made some plain, unsweetened iced earl grey last week.

jean luc pitard would have farted in disapproval.

ok, i like diet snapple peach iced tea, but only cut in half with water.

Never tried any of the tea in a can or bottle products...I am very fond of unsweetened Earl Grey. Does any company produce Earl Grey in a can or bottle?
....on 2nd thought, I ain't sure if Earl Grey would be good cold.

i've never seen bottled cold earl grey, but i made some at home (brewed hot then chilled) and it was good. the bergamot was all the sweetening it needed.

Thanks!
I reckon I will try that very soon. It never occurred to me to make iced Earl Grey.

Did the $5000.00 +++ give away have anything to do with this recent purchase?
