Read My Lips Tea--Nutritional Information
Hi—I am very interested in the Read My Lips chocolate mint tea. I am on a very low carbohydrate way of eating. I was wondering if the candy lips in the tea add very much in the way of sugars/carbs to the tea. I am hoping one of the moderators for this site will see this and reply. Thanks!
This would be a question best answered by Davids Tea, the company which produces the tea. They can be reached here: http://www.davidstea.com/customer-service
I found the following on their Frequently Asked Questions page which seems to answer your question:
“With all the fun sprinkles, candies and caramel bits that find their way into some of our teas, some sceptics wonder whether these blends are still a healthy beverage choice. The truth is that we routinely test the blends that contain sugary ingredients for their sugar and caloric content. So far, the caloric content in the liquor of these teas is below the limit that must be declared on food labels. They are not all at zero, but none are more than 5 calories per cup of tea.
And what about public enemy number one – sugar? Not to worry, our teas have all tested below 1 g of sugar per cup of tea (according to our steeping instructions)."
