    So, fruit teas are out because of the citric acid, but what other teas are people drinking?

    I've had a few black coffees and black teas so far and I've seen that a few of you like peppermint tea - what about the other herbal ones like fennel, chamomile, nettle etc? Do they seem to be ok?

    I do like a bit of 'hippy tea' (as my bf calls them!) anyway from time to time, so the more different types I can drink the more variety and tastes I will feel like I'm having!

    I drink green tea, white tea, nettle tea and Morrisons fennel and nettle which is my favourite. Occasionally have a cup of chamomile, but only because its in the cupboard.

    Isn't fennel supposed to be very detoxing?

    I am going to have to swing by sainsbugs to get some of that tea with eucalyptus in it

    I wasn't keen on rooboos pre vlcd
    so now i must try again, see if I like it now

    I read that no fruity tea because it quite probably has fruit, or natural sweeteners in. I suppose any of those may be true.

    twinings do a range of green tea and [mildly fruity flavour]. Now, I'm not saying they're at all approved, but they don't seem to be doing me any harm. With green tea as the main ingredient I suppose there's not enough 'and' in it to make any difference - I reached for one in desperation to help settle an acid stomach (as, of course, rennies are out, and ranitidine takes a while to kick in), and have been keen on them since. There's also a white tea and pomegranate, too. Essentially, it's all just tea with a hint of something else.

    Not claiming they're generally diet friendly, but one in an evening, (stick it in a big mug, and keep topping up with hot water as the evening goes on) seems to pass under the ketotic radar...

    There's plenty of choice then, that's good! We've got loads of different types of tea in the cupboard at work so I can start discovering them all! In fact, Bren I think we might even have that Tick Tock rooibos tea...

    Not so much anymore, first couple of weeks were really quite unpleasant though. But it's something I can suffer with at the best of times, diet or no...

    Hi,

    I love Pukka three mint tea, rooibos with natural vanilla flavour and i am also into white tea as Holland and Barrett just wrote a piece on it in their health magazine.
    Kingston University London have just finished doing a study on white tea.....this was revealed....white tea helps stop the breakdown of elastin and collagen in the skin, preventing wrinkles and sagging.....Anti-ageing? Put the kettle on!

    I love peppermint tea. I even mix it in with the chocolate shake to make a lovely mint hot chocolate!

    I have a mix of Peppermint tea. Cherry Tea (when I'm craving something sweet) and also Pu'er Tea. My friend swears by it...and she's a fitness fanatic so I thought I'd take her word. It tastes a bit like muck to begin with lol! But I like it now

    I tried the Tick Tock rooibus tea after my brekkie - it was foul! I like loads of other herbal teas but I'm just not gonna get on with this one... it smells like dirty hay from a pet's cage.... eww!

    Have you had it long? It might have gone stale.................
    It definitely has a smell and taste all of its own but I really like it.

    Bren - I bought it fresh on Friday night... I think it's just going to be one of those things that don't agree with my tastebuds! Going to get some fennel and some peppermint I think. I know I like those!

    I have been drinking Rooibos tea for a couple of years now and it does have a distinct taste all of its own Shuffler. When I first got it it was still quite unheard of so that pack was expensive. I think that my first impression was eeew I don't really like this but I knew that Mr Myr would not be too complimentary if I threw away my latest fad, so with gritted teeth I carried on. After a few days I was quite used to it and to be honest I really do not like ordinary leaf now.
    On saying that I have actually taken to drinking nescafe green coffee instead which I find funny as I never was a big coffee drinker and would never drink it black out of choice.

    I bought some peppermint teabags yesterday (Tesco own brand) never tried it before but found it very refreshing.

    Love Myr xxx
