Rethinking healthy drinks
For centuries, tea has been known for its health properties and widely drunk in most Asian cultures. Some variants have been said to be able to help regulate blood sugar levels as well.
However, the common perception that all teas are healthy must be reconsidered, as the production of sweetened teas has changed the landscape of the tea industry. A small cup of sweet tea at a fast food restaurant contains around 36g of sugar, while an average 250ml bottle of tea has around 23g of sugar.
Therefore, check the sugar content of your teas before your purchase. The best option is to drink unsweetened tea to optimise the health benefits.
