I am relatively new to tea. My prior experience with tea was limited to tea at Asian restaurants and iced tea from Starbucks. I pretty much shunned tea.
A few months ago, I started a restrictive diet and was looking for something with flavor that had zero calories, zero sugar and zero carbs. With that in mind, I wandered into a Teavana store and walked out with a massive amount of tea and a lighter wallet.
Since that purchase, I have discovered David’s tea. While I primarily prefer Teavana tea, I do not like how Teavana does not provide any carb/sugar information on their teas. Based on David’s tea, it is likely that many of the Teavana teas would have sugars and carbs that I can’t have in my teas.
So, for the time being, I am focusing on teas that do not have many dried fruits or other sugary added ingredients. My current favorite is chai teas – but I have found there is quite a bit of variety of chai tea from place to place.
