I'd like to cut my diet soda habit, and IIRC correctly, we can have tea..

Does it matter what brand or what kind? I was thinking to try some green tea, but I don't want to be drinking the wrong thing, you know?.

Something like this:.

The minute I see sugar as an ingredient, I steer clear of it while on 5&1. We already know the federal government lets the manufacturers "fudge" the numbers on fat, carbs, etc. so I just stick with the plain stuff in tea bags, including teas. I like the stash teas

I think you just have to watch the caffeine. I listened to a Dr's lecture the other day where he said that 2 teas equal one coffee. The Bigelow teas are great, especially French Vanilla (caffeinated) and Sweet Dreams (no caff)...

I drink alot of tea - now I have to check to see if sugar is one of the ingredients. Who would have thought? Thanks for posting this thread...

I believe flavored teas have carbs. I could be wrong. When I drink tea, I have gunpowder green from Numi. It gets it's name from the leafs being rolled up to look like little gunpowder pellets.

Anyhoo... If the only ingredient is actual tea with no added flavors or other random junk you'll be good...

I love tea. My current favorite is Kalahari Tea ChocoLatte. It sounds more decadent than it is. All of the flavors have dark roasted cacao as one of the ingredients, so you get a mild chocolate flavor, as well as various spices. My current favorite is the ChocoLatte Cherry Vanilla. It is a red tea (delicious by itself) with vanilla, spices, cacao and cherry.

It is made with Sencha green tea, peppermint, Matcha green tea, cacao and organic chocolate flavor.

If you like plain tea, check the labels to make sure you are not getting added sugar, sodium, etc. Make sure it is just plain black tea (or red, or green, or white) with maybe some spices or flowers. A tea bag needn't have sugar as one of it's ingredients...

I would not drink that particular tea as it contains sugar. It is easier, fresher, better for you to brew your own for 10 cents a bottle. Just buy some decent tea bags (Bigelow Lemon Green Tea is good and NOT bitter), brew it (do not brew green tea too hot or too long... let the boiled water cool for 5 min and brew for about 3 minutes then remove bag) and put it in a water bottle with ice if you like. No sugar, no carbs, no calories..

Herbal teas work too. Most tea bags steep to zero calories/carbs... check the label...

I wasn't going to buy THAT particular brand, I was just using it as an example. I actually went and bought plain green tea.

And that Chocolatte tea sounds FANTASTIC...

Comment #7

Less than 1 calorie and less than 1 carb sounds good to me!..

Comment #8

THe description reads a lot like the taste of the rooibos tea at Starbucks. I get that sometimes instead of coffee since I don't have to have any sweetner in tea...

Comment #9

I went ahead and ordered the Cherry Vanilla and Matcha mint teas!..
