I LOVE this stuff! I keep it stocked at home and also keep the grape flavor on hand when my nephew comes to visit and Aunt Keshia has had fun for the day. It is soothing and relaxing and with a sprinkle of no calorie sweetener it’s like hot grape kool-aid to him 🙂 Being a Southern lady I also enjoy a iced tea…so in short, I like coffee, I like tea…nade na na (I couldn’t help myself).
