AUWingsFan Posted June 17, 2015 Share Posted June 17, 2015 Hi! First post. I just started my Whole30 today and am excited about it, but fear an accidental slip. My sister and her husband completed their first Whole30 earlier this month and are providing me with a good support group, but I figured I'd expand my support network and join the forums! What I foresee being my biggest challenge will be giving up sodas. They are how I get my caffeine and I was happy to see that the plan allows coffee and tea since I would almost inevitably get a caffeine headache (but perhaps thats one of the points of the plan!). Anyway, I was just writing to find out if a tea is compliant. The company is called Sweet Leaf Tea. They make a Lemon & Lime Unsweet Tea. The ingredient list is what confused me. Here's what it says: Ingredients: Water, Black Tea Concentrate, Natural Flavors, Natural Tea Essence, Citric Acid. From what I've been able to gather on the forums natural flavors shouldn't be a deal breaker. My main question comes about "Natural Tea Essence". In my search I didn't see any definitive statement on "natural tea essence". I was just hoping to get clarification on whether or not natural essences were permissible. The company makes really good tea and I'd like to buy it if it is compliant so I get a tea that is already containing the lemon & lime flavors. Thanks in advance for the help! Here's a link to the product: http://www.sweetleaftea.com/flavors/zero-calorie-teas/lemon-lime-unsweet-tea Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
