Tazo Passion Tea and work outing



I bought this giant pitcher, (at Walmart) which holds 5 gallons for when I have friends over. 

But, the other day we had an all work picnic and I decided to make 4 gallons of Tazo tea and take it to the picnic.  

The pitcher worked great, but it is not easy to lug around.  I would recommend filling it where you wan to use it.


I love the Tazo Passion iced Tea.  I think it has to be my favorite iced tea.  It is what they serve at Starbucks.  You can get the iced tea tea bags at Walmart. 


Note- if you order Passion Iced Tea at Starbuck's - ask for half the squirts of sugar. It is super sweet if they put them all in.  

When I make a gallon at home I use less than 1/2 C of sugar- closer to 1/4 cup.  This tea is so good and refreshing.  It has the tartness from the hibiscus, but also a sweetness. For me it is the perfect herbal combination.

It must not been too bad because one of my co-workers had like 7 cups of tea....he said it was like "crack".


Yes, when I asked to chug from the pitcher, I did so, lol!

At our picnic we had a mask decorating party.  The winners would win gift cards.


I did not win the mask contest, but my friend did. Her sunflower was gorgeous!


We then had a rock stacking contest, and I DID WIN that!  I stacked the most rocks.


I later updated my mask a bit.

These masks are huge and practically cover my entire face.

LION Organic Bottled Dandelion Tea

I know that you are thinking, Dandelion Tea, and you paid for it?
Yep!!

The price was right. I wanted to try it,so I ordered it.


It came very well packaged. 



I think my two favorites were the Blood Orange Ginger and the Blueberry Hibiscus.  They are all unsweetened and I enjoyed not having that extra sugar in them.  

There was a bit of an earthy flavor to them, but it was not anything I could not get passed.  It just added to the flavor of the tea.  And I knew that this tea was really healthy for me.


Prebiotics are a type of fiber that the human body cannot digest. They serve as food for probiotics, which are tiny living microorganisms, including bacteria and yeast. 

Both prebiotics and probiotics may support helpful bacteria and other organisms in the gut.


Prebiotics and probiotics both support the body in building and maintaining a healthy colony of bacteria and other microorganisms, which supports the gut and aids digestion.
These food components help promote beneficial bacteria by providing food and creating an environment where microorganisms can flourish.

Prebiotics are present in fiber-rich foods, such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
 Probiotics occur in many fermented foods, including yogurt, sauerkraut, and tempeh.
