Im a huge fan of making my own iced teas (not adding sugar or sweetners of course). Ill hot brew a few bags for 30 mins, pour it into a pitcher (whens it has cooled down), then top it off with ice water. I like the variety that Celestial Seasonings has, a lot of intersting fruity flavors.
However I taste something sweet in there that Im weary of, I cant put my finger on it, and Im not sure if it will be harmful to the diet. Maybe some of you Atkins gurus can advise whether is anything in this particular tea that I should be avoiding. I have read the acceptable food items for the induction phase, and it seems all herbs and spices are ok.
Also, feel free to post your favorite refreshing summer drinks!
