Honey, Here's How Teetotalers Stay Slim

So, exactly how do devout tea lovers stay slim, anyhow? 

Spa nutritionists will tell you that drinking a soothing hot beverage is similar to having a hot cup of soup before a meal. It satisfies your appetite and you'll eat less. A hot liquid can fill you up, not out.
Excerpt from Ch. 10 Tea(s) with Your Honey

Herbal teas with honey are caffeine free, unlike metabolism-booting black and green teas, coffee, and soda. If you max out on caffeinated beverages it can cause your blood sugar to spike and plummet like an amusement park ride, leaving you tired and cranky or likely to reach for more caffeine or junk food to get another pick-me-up. This does not happen with soothing teas.

Rosehip and Cranberry Tea
* * *
2 cup water
1 1/2 cups cranberry juice
1 clove
2 rose hip tea bags, or 
2 rose hip-blend tea bags
2 tablespoons clover
2 orange slices garnish

Combine the water, cranberry juice, and clove in a medium-size pot set over medium heat. Bring to simmer. Using a spoon, remove the clove from the cranberry juice. Place the rose hip tea bags into a warmed teapot, pour in the hot cranberry-water mixture, stir in the honey, and steep for 5-7 minutes. Pour into mugs, garnish with oranges and serve.
