I have a few questions about eating tea.
I found that certain teas tatse great dry right out of the tea bag- not wet after being brewed in water- as some people eat it wet like that. I am talking about taking a dry tea bag out of the box, tearing it open, pouring the dry contents into a bowl, and eating it (not the bag- the tea!).
My favorites are blueberry, raspberry, and vanilla. I'm not trying to drop name brands, but celestial seasonings have the best tasting teas raw. Some green teas are awesome as well. I know it might sound strange, but it's like candy.
Here are my questions;
even though tea- the ones I use- have no calories/carbs, would they have carbs eaten dry out of the bag? I do cycle my carbs, but just in case tea may convert to carbs, I use them on my high carb days for a treat
can there be health benefits from having it, what I consider- raw- like this? The teas I like raw are the fruit teas, vanilla, black, and green. Cammomile is great, but it's a bit strong- where if you plan on sleeping in- it's fine, but all too relaxing. Some green teas give too much energy- even tohough it's cafein free.
Well, I thank anyone for any information on this. I have been trying to find answers, before indulging in my new-found treat. Of course I enjoy a hot cup of tea, but eating it raw- it's become me new favorite thing.
