What is so exciting about waking up each day?
Aside from being a blogger, I also work as a writer for an American company. Not only that, I’m a full-time student at the UP Open University. I work and study at home, which means that my room (and the Internet) is pretty much the only world I see the entire week.
You can just imagine how crazy it is to carefully juggle my schedule in order to accomplish various tasks in the confines of my small space. That’s why it’s important for me to feel inspired and excited to get out of bed and face my laptop each day.
Coffee helps me to jumpstart my morning. But to keep me up and rolling all throughout the day, I concocted this refreshing fruit iced tea made special by Lipton Yellow Label Tea. I named it Tea-ropical Holiday Punch. Its natural minty flavor makes it also a great alternative drink for the holiday season.
My Tea-ropical Holiday Punch does not only perk me up to ready me on my daily workload. It is also highly nutritious because of its fruit contents. You can never go wrong with our favorite local fruits – mango and pineapple. The combination of their sweet juices, plus Lipton tea, provides a healthy concoction that is better than any energy drink. Adding some mint leaves creates a cool sensation in the mouth, especially on a warm, sunny day.
You can also use other local fruit juices, such as calamansi and pomelo. This gives you countless choices and combinations of fruit juices to satisfy your taste buds. With Lipton Yellow Label Tea, the possibiliTEAS are simply endless.
Now, I’m always ready and excited to start a new day.
