Staying Awake...

So in my last blog post, or last few, I have probably mentioned exams. Lots of them. I had my short break from them this past weekend, but they are coming around again. Two next week! Which doesn’t sound terrible but it feels like I never get a break! I have been trying to prepare by studying ahead of time, but I just get SO tired! But thankfully… I have my tea & coffee! I am getting a little burnt out on coffee though, so I have been turning to tea more often. One tea in particular I cannot stop drinking (hot tea of course). It is the Lipton Vanilla Caramel Truffle Black Tea. 
I love these tea bags!

At first I thought the taste was a bit too strong, but I have gotten used to it, and have figured out a yummy way to “tone” it down a bit. Coffee creamer! I like to use the International Delight Vanilla Latte Coffee Creamer Singles, and a packet of Stevia Raw Sugar. 
I like having singles because they can be stored longer than the large bottle that you store in the refrigerator.

The tea has zero calories, and packs in 20 mg of caffeine per serving (according to Lipton's website).  I know the creamer has calories but for the time being, I am not as worried about that as getting some energy that tastes good to me! I really love this combination and would recommend it to tea lovers, more specifically black tea!  My friend actually had a cup of my combo today and said "You should try to sell this to Starbucks". I don't know if they would agree, but it is pretty delicious! 

What do you like to do to get prepared for exams (or busy days)? Any favorite drinks/suggestions?
