  1. I’ve look through all your posts and tiktoks and I may have missed it, but have you done the cherry lime flavor?
    and on a separate note, what does the aloe, or cactus water or coconut water do?

  2. Is there a real difference between the Crystal Light Peach Mango Tea and the Great Value Peach Mango Tea….the same with Great Value Iced Tea with Peach and Crystal Light Peach Iced Tea. Just starting out and have bought everything I can so far budget wise, however seems like I am still missing one thing from each recipe.

  3. I’m loving these tea recipes! Saves me a ton of money each week! I’m wondering, though, how you’re coming up with the caffeine measurement on these…CL wild strawberry energy has 60/65mg, the green tea has 15…so I’m not seeing where you’re coming up with 180mg on the frugal loaded tea (as an example)..can you help me understand? I sure don’t want to miss out on some caffeine…:)

      1. My Herbalife tea name is Cottontail Colada, it has lemon tea, orange liftoff, collagen, mango aloe, strawberry and coconut flavoring. What would be comparable to this?

  4. Hi! I just want to thank you so much for posting your recipes for these loaded teas! I took your advice and I did some of my own recipes concoctions. Haha. Waaay cheaper and I can build it to my taste. I bought the Great Value brand in most of the powdered flavors as well as the liquid. I also bought a pretty tie dye colored 32oz metal travel cup as well. This is a game changer. I imagine my husband likes the switch as well. I made him a loaded tea with the 4c mixes and his favorite flavored cherry packet(I used True Lemon limeade brand black Cherry for his) I also substituted coconut water for cactus water. Perfecto!

  5. The Gaurana powder you use, how important is it for these teas? Is there something comparable? Btw, absolutely loving these dupes! Thank you for posting them!!

  6. Can I use something in these besides cactus or coconut water? I would love to keep them as low carb\sugar free as possible! Love these recipes!
