Food find: Lipton vanilla caramel truffle black tea

I've been fighting a nasty flu/cold/whatever it is for six days now, so not much blogging has been happening. My weigh in this week showed a 2/10ths of a pound gain, but considering that I've just gotten back to the gym this AM that's understandable. I need to be down 2.4 pounds in the next two weeks to achieve lifetime member status at Weight Watchers, and since my weigh in (two days ago) I've lost half of that so it's looking good, especially once I kick this illness to the curb. Since I've been feeling ill I've been having a lot of tea, and I found a wonderful low WW point treat. It's **almost** Starbucks worthy (at least as far as hot drinks go), for a lot fewer points. (I really doubt that there is a points-friendly replacement for the heavenly frozen caramel fraps I have from Starbucks twice a week- love those things, and I'll continue to totally plan my Thursdays and Saturdays around them, points-wise.) I've been having this Lipton vanilla caramel truffle black tea with 16 ounces of hot water and I add 1 1/2 tablespoons of International Delights Coffee House Inspirations fat free skinny caramel macchiatto coffee creamer to it and stir well (if you don't stir well the creamer settles to the bottom- not a good thing.) The tea is 0 WW points, and 1 1/2 tablespoons of the creamer is 1 WW point. It's a great treat for 1 point, give it a try!
