Teas

Postby Lala » Thu Jul 05, 2007 12:18 pm

I did a search but didn't find much about drinking tea, so i apologise if this has already been covered. :?

I have a VERY sweet tooth and it is is imposible for me to give up the taste of something i love so much. A while ago i went to T2 and bought some strawberry and cream tea and i usually have it after dinner/before bed to satisfy that dessert craving.

The only thing is that there is nothing on the packaging saying how much sugar is in it. Does anybody have any idea if these are good for you?

There should be a number to phone the distribution company ring them they would be able to tell you. Or you could always go back to T2 surly they should know what the nutritional vales are.

I'm not sure about that specific type of tea, but I know peppermint is good for you (black tea is 70kj and peppermint is between 70 and 100) and has a bit of a sweet taste. All of the flavoured twinings teas have values on the back, and there's quite a large range- it might be worth checking out?

Hey Lala that green tea with citrus is on Calorie King and it says that it is one calorie per cup (without sugar/honey)

peppermint and liquorice root is really nice and has a sweet flavour from the liquorice. You can't have too much though and you shouldn't have it if pregnant.

http://www.heartburnandpregnancy.info/h ... relief.php here it says you can have peppermint and aniseed whilst pregnant and that it eases heartburn? i was told not to have peppermint oil whilst pregnant though.
