4C Totally Light Tea2Go Raspberry : Helps me get my water down!

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Delicious, 0-calories, no sugar, convenient, inexpensive.

Cons:We certainly don't need more chemicals in our diets.

The Bottom Line: Supposedly drinking water is a healthy habit. For me, I need to add some flavor or it will simply never happen.


Water.  I know I'm supposed to drink a lot of it each day.  Supposedly there are countless health and weight benefits from doing so.  But I just can't stand plain water.  So I've been relying on sugar-free flavor packets to help make the process bearable.  There are many brands and flavors out there.  One of them is 4C which makes a Totally Light 2Go and Totally Light Tea2Go product.  The Tea2Go products are various flavors of iced tea, in this case, I'm reviewing the Raspberry Flavor

No matter which flavor you choose, the basic product is the same.  These are small, thin packets of flavored powder.  Each brightly colored foil packet is about 4 1/2" long and 1/2" wide.  This long, thin shape makes it extremely easy to pour the contents into any size water bottle.  There's a clearly visible tear line near the top.  No fighting with knives or scissors to open these packets!

Next step: simply pour into 16 oz. of water.  Well, that's what the directions say to do.  Personally, I pour them into 32 oz. of water because I prefer the weaker flavor.  You should experiment with varying amounts of water to find the mix that's right for you.  The powder dissolves easily.  Just a few shakes, or a few stirs with a spoon ensure no clumping at the bottom of the drink. 

Now, sit back and enjoy!  The flavor is great.  A gentle hint of raspberry mixes with tea to become a delicious, refreshing drink.  Does it taste anything at all like fresh-brewed iced tea?  Nah.  But I don't mind.  This product may not be like the "real thing" but it's tasty in its own right.

What makes it taste good?  Well, there are two sugar substitutes in this product.  Acesulfame potassium and Splenda brand sucralose.  Why do they need two different sugar substitutes?  I have no idea.  But all of the brands of similar products seem to combine two sweeteners.  What else is in there?  Well, instant tea is the first ingredient.  And lower on the list is "natural raspberry flavor with other natural flavors".    

As far as nutrition goes, the only thing this product provides is vitamin C.  Everything else is a 0.  0 calories, 0 fat.  Oddly, they consider this packet to be two servings.  Seems strange, since they advise pouring into a single 16 oz. bottle of water.  But I guess they are allowing for the possibility of two people sharing one packet, into two 8 oz. glasses of water.

These packets are extremely portable.  Easy to slip into my purse, or lunch box.  They come in several different size packages, including bulk boxes at warehouse clubs.  In the end, each packet will cost approximately 30 cents.  In my case, that means a quart of iced tea costs 30 cents.  If you follow the directions and use 16 oz. of water the cost adjusts accordingly.

They taste great, they're very convenient, they're inexpensive, and they help me get my water down.  A real winner, in my book!
