Picture of Creme de la Tea
Enough of those sugar friendly, calorie spending, sodium ending chemicals. TREAT YOURSELF!

I love this drink because it is so relaxing to finally drink something that is a treat to your body. It tastes quite good, and it uses everyday ingredients!

Try this one for yourself, it is a keeper!

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
What do I need for this Instructable?

  • Tea (preferably unsweetened because of sweetening with other ingredients)
  • Milk
  • Half and Half (half milk, half cream)
  • Sugar Packet (I used Stevia, which is hundreds times sweeter than normal sugar)
  • Cup
  • Ice

Eew, you used pre-prepared tea? How does this work out with coffee? L
I agree, never use premade tea. I always brew my tea fresh. And for some odd reason your avatar just disappeared, but only yours. Weird......

Yea, I just made this quickly with pre-made tea. I usually drink Tea-Vana tea, like Roobios Caramel and fresh tea leaves...MMM!
I usually make whatever brand of black tea I have, but I prefer Stash brand.
Have you tried the Licorice Spice from Stash? It's my mom's favorite.
No, but I should try it some time. I picked up a "Thai Delight" from Yogi awhile back, that was pretty good. Sweet, though.

This is the best way to get a great drink at a restaurant/bar for dirt cheap. Just order a sweet tea and ask for a handful of creamers. You will get some strange looks but it's worth it. Then dump in the creamers when they get there. If you'd like a stiff drink, add a shot or two of your favorite alcohol and wa-la, you've got a cheap drink with free refills (plus cost of liquor :-D). Nice Instructable BTW...

Looks good. I wish I could drink some with out getting all the cramps from the lactose in the milk and half n half. How about a soy alternative. I LOVE soy milk, try the "Silk" brand very vanilla.

Whats the Sucrose size equivalent? And how many times sweeter is the packet? I know Sucralose (splenda) is upwards 200, but they add maltodexerin.

I believe it is 300 times sweeter than sugar. I am unsure of the Sucrose size equivalent.
