The benefits of drinking the ancient elixir of tea are rumored to be many, being an efficient way to take in nutrients & antioxidants from plants we share this Planet with. From helping with diseases, weight-loss, and comforting the soul, it is a wonderful addition to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
My 3-year-old and I enjoy drinking tea. My Son especially likes fresh-cut mint tea, from our garden upstate New York, with some local raw honey. Personally, I am a big fan of Red Clover tea at the moment, which I wild-harvest from our land. However, the warmer months will soon pass, the snow will visit again, and we will not have the option to make straight-from-the-garden cold iced tea. Sure we can still make it from dried herbs, but if we are on-the-go we need a brand we can trust to get our tea fix. A brand who is making a good product which we agree with. And, that means; made with organic and non-gmo ingredients.
Third Street – a Colorado-based maker of premium, sustainable beverages – just introduced a line of organic, fair-trade, non-GMO and gluten-free ice teas which is right up our alley.
Available in 14 oz. sizes, these single-serve, ready-to-drink beverages include refreshing black and green teas from the lush region of Nilgiri, India, which are then micro-brewed in Colorado.
Serving tea to your children is a way better option than sodas for sure, and juice too (dependent on the situation). As a mother, sometimes I do not want to give Miles Storm fruit juice because of the sugar (natural or not), and water seems like it may be a little boring for him?
Third Street Tea has a few pros to help navigate through this; all of their beverages are either sugar-free or low in sugar content. The lemonade does not contain caffeine and the iced teas are very low in caffeine, between 10-30 grams per serving. To put that into perspective, there is anywhere between 34 mg – 55 mg of caffeine in a 12 ounce can of soda. By adding iced tea to a majority part of sparkling water, you can cut the sugar and caffeine even more. We also love the fun leopard packaging! So adorable.
