HAPPY NATIONAL SWEET TEA DAY
We are a California-based company with roots in New York City, sweet tea just isn't on our radar. But we know many of our loving and loyal customers enjoy a tall, ice-cold glass of sweet tea. (looking at you Texas. 😉 )
What we do know about sweet tea is the recipe is fairly simple.
- Lots of sugar
- Black tea
Rumor has it that some recipes ask for 1/2 a bag of sugar per gallon of tea. 😐 (read this article about diabetes)
With that in mind, maybe you have been searching for a healthy alternative to traditional sweet tea. Maybe you just found it. 🙂
Did you know that the average daily sugar consumption is 22 teaspoons & the recommended average daily consumption is only 6 teaspoons? That's 4 times the recommend daily intake.
Our bodies are put into a sort of shock with those high doses and over time our internal systems will rebel against us in a variety of pleasant ways.
- Insatiable hunger
- Weight gain
- Insulin resistance
- Liver failure
- Kidney disease
The list goes on, but this info is nothing new to you.
If you are a sweet tea lover, but have decided you want to cut back on the sugar intake, we found a recipe you may want to try.
