    No, just mint tea, nettle tea, green tea or ordinary black tea. Sorry!

    I've been told no because of the natural sugar content you get in fruit which is passed through into the tea. Anything off a leaf is fine eg green tea, peppermint tea but anything from fruit/flower is a no go. Shame I love fruit teas as well!

    I've been drinking ginger tea - cut up bits of ginger root in hot water - and I've been fine and still losing weight. As a former tea drinker with lemon, I've found that this is the one thing I really miss.

    Hate to be a party pooper here, but there's a few mentioned that I'd be wary off :(

    Ginger is from the root, so not allowed.
    Fennel is from the seed, so again not allowed.
    Eucalyptus, though from the leaf has the possibility of having some of the oils in it (not 100% sure on this one though).

    Having said that, some people don't seem to have a problem with them.

    Don't forget you can have Redbush and also if you want a fruity tea, you can add some berry water flavourings. I've heard it's lovely in green tea :clap:

    Ooops. Sorry everyone.

    No its a leaf tea, which is decaffeinated and people often add sugar and milk to it. Its called Rooibos in some places.

    Most health food stores will sell it and some supermarkets.
