IS ICED TEA GOOD FOR YOU?

One big question I think a lot of people have is whether or not iced tea is good for you.  As per usual, my go-to answer with most questions like this is, “It depends.”  What does it depend on?

  • Are you adding a ton of sugar into your iced tea?
  • Did you already have 6 iced teas and want another one in the same day?
  • Did you use clean, simple, and fresh ingredients?
  • Is it helping you reach your daily water intake minimums?

Here’s the deal.  Overall, if you’re limiting the amount of caffeine in a day, you’re not adding a ton of sugar or highly processed ingredients, and you’re just enjoying a refreshing iced tea recipe to change up your pace of drinking plain water to keep you hydrated, iced tea is a perfectly healthy choice.
