thanks for the tip (and plug if you have stock ). i'm always willing to try new drinks, especially if they claim a health benefit.

does it really contain natural anti-oxidants from pomegranate, or is it anti-oxidant chemicals added along with pomegranate flavoring?

my latest 2 favourite iced teas are lipton cold brew (5 bags per gallon), and 60/40 snapple diet iced green tea with ginseng, mixed with water.

i'm like that, bucky. some drinks taste syrupy when i'm thirsty if i don't dilute them.

Iced cold water but all day I drink a lot of decaffeinated iced green tea I also keep water by my bed. I try to drink enough water or ice tea so I don't get thirsty in the first place. Where we live the humidity is usually at 20% so staying hydrated is really important. Especially when we get at high altitude where I live it's 7500' but if you go higher where I used to work in the summer it's 10000 ft so yes it's even more important to drink tons of water. I do not care for sodas or any other sweetened drink just plain cold tea or pure water.
