    Fruit Tea

    I know that normal Tea (no milk) is free however I was making a cup of fruit tea and realised that the calorific values are hugely different. I looked on the SW website and can find no listing for fruit tea at all.

    Does anyone drink fruit tea and if so do know if it is also free or if I need to Syn it?

    I only drink fruit, mint and green tea. They are all free unless they contain sugars of any kind. For example some brands make an instant tea fruit blend. Ones in bags though are free. fill your boots (not literally as that would taste weird!)

    I am a bit puzzled by what you say about the calorific values being hugely different. According to the Tesco website, there are 2 calories per 100ml in Twinings fruit teas, and 1 calorie per 100ml in Tetleys ordinary tea.

    So not really a huge difference. I wonder what kind of fruit teas you are using?

    I'm using Whittards teas. Per serving it has 76 calories, 19grams of carbs 18.7g of sugar. All other nutritional values are 0

    Whittards instant teas? They are NOT tea! They are almost pure sugar, with some tea flavouring.

    For instance, according to their website, the ingredients for the Turkish Apple one are Cane Sugar, Citric Acid, Black Tea Extract (1%), Natural flavouring.

    You would have to syn them at 1 syn per 20 calories, which would mean 4 syns per serving. Sorry!

    Yes that's what I was thinking when I said fruit tea blends. I couldn't remember the brand. I bought some once and then realised it was pretty much all sugar. Gutted though as it was nice!!
