Two if by Tea - good!

My friend (a liberal) received a shipment of Rush Limbaugh's Two if by Tea drinks from her BIL (a conservative). Gave her a good laugh. She was going to give it all away but found she really liked it. Knowing DH is a big Rush fan, she graciously shared 4 bottles with us. It is really good tea! So far I've only tried the Raspberry and have a peach waiting in the fridge. It's not really very sweet and the raspberry flavor is very light, not overpowering like other fruit teas. All the proceeds go to charity. I may just have to order some more!

So even if Rush gives you the willies or makes you want to scream and tear your hair out, give his tea a try. I doubt you will be disappointed.

I listen to him because DH does. He makes a point and usually has good insights into situations but his delivery can be rather bombastic which puts a lot of people off. I try to keep politics out of my posts because it can cause so many hard feelings.

But no matter what you think of the man, he offers a good product and the charity supports the children of Marines and Federal agents killed in action. How can you not support that?

I remember many moons ago and he was hawking Snapple, when it first came on the market. For some unknown reason, he seems to have a thing about tea.
I really like Snapple Peach Ice Tea. Is it a lot different from Snapple?

I don't drink Snapple so I can't compare. Guess I ought to! Two things I like is it is made with real sugar and not HFCS and it is not super sweet.

I'm so glad you tried the tea and posted this. I don't like really sweet tea, but if it is just a little sweet I may try it. I did go to the web site one time, but didn't order any because there was no unsweetened. I may have to try the raspberry tea if it is mildly sweet.

imo, the guy makes a living in fear mongering and yellow journalism (but then again that's a norm for the day. gone are the days of edward murrow or walter kronkite), but if the tea he promotes is not overly sweet, and proceeds go to good causes, why not?

i also like peach snapple, but have to cut it 2 to 1 with water to make it drinkable.

I had the peach tea and it was even better than the raspberry! True peach flavor. It tasted a bit sweeter but I think that's just because peaches are naturally more sweet than raspberries. Calories wise they were the same. I just ordered some more peach and am going to try the blueberry. Should be here this week.

Can we pretty PLEASE steer away from the political commentary!? Sheesh! It's always just a matter of time before it ends up getting the thread shut down. I mean, come on, don't we all get enough of that crap on TV and the internet as is? I'd like to think DC is one of the few places where I can go to get away from it.

This thread is supposed to be about the product and not Rush. No matter what you may think of him and his political commentary, the product is good and the profits go to a worthy cause. I am not promoting his political viewpoint just his tea!
