    I has to be a leaf tea, not a fruit tea. Tea leaf, any colour, black, green or white, peppermint is another leaf, no funny addatives like fruit etc. I'm sure others will have one or two more to try but I like peppermint.

    When I did LL we were told you couldn't have any teas which were from the flower, which rules out quite a lot of herbal teas - eg camomile tea is made from the flower of the plant. And yes, all fruit teas are banned. Redbush tea can be nice, also sold as rooibos.

    I did't know about the flower thing at first and had jasmine tea int he first week which is a no-no. I've had peppermint and rooibos, they help when I'm feeling the cold!

    I would say, If in doubt ask on here as there are so many people who have looked into this already! it's a total mine of information

    Green tea is brilliant whilst on LL, as it helps you got to the toilet. I have recommended it to lots off LL users and they love it. It is an aquired taste, however it also speeds up matabolisism, so its great in everyway, well it can stain teeth but then again so can coffee. Give it try xx
