With Spring and Summer approaching, you may be looking for a healthy and refreshing drink.
Many reach for sweet tea.
Unfortunately, traditional sweet tea is packed with health-degrading sugar.
But now, you can use Keto Zone Sweet Tea instead, two ways.
Instead of hurting your health, its black or green tea leaves are incredibly nourishing.
In fact, they can reduce stress hormones, aid weight loss, improve oral health, and more!
Instead of a bunch of sugar, we’ll use a Keto Zone-friendly healthy sweetener.
This Spring and Summer, try our Keto Zone Sweet Tea. Here’s how and why.
Place tea bags in a large pitcher or jar while bringing water to a boil.
Pour water over tea and allow to steep 5-8 minutes.*
Add erythritol and mix until completely dissolved.
Allow tea to cool, and then place in refrigerator until cold.
*Alternatively, make “sun tea” by placing tea and warm water in large glass jar, and placing in the sun for 4-6 hours. Remove tea, add erythritol and refrigerate.

Of course, traditional sweet tea is made with black tea. And, this is great. In fact, there are many health benefits of drinking black tea.
You can find out more about these benefits here.
But, if you’d like a bit of variety in both taste and health benefits, consider making green sweet tea in addition to black this summer.
There are few drinks with as many studies to support its benefits as green tea. It’s been consumed for centuries as part of the diets of healthy populations in Eastern countries.
It is wonderfully nutritious and packed with special antioxidants, called catechins.
Green tea is minimally processed. Its leaves are withered and steamed, and not fermented like black and oolong teas. Its unique antioxidants are more concentrated.
The main catechin and nutrient is green tea is called Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG). It is responsible for most of the health benefits, of which there are many (2). They include:
Initially, it was attributed to caffeine. But recent studies have shown these effects in caffeinated and decaffeinated green tea (there’s actually little caffeine in green tea to begin with). The studies have used both green tea “extract” as a concentrated form of antioxidants and regular, brewed green tea.
Of course, there are many, many factors go into overall health and fat loss, such are reducing sugars and carbs.
But, you need hydration anyway – most adults feel best with 60-80 oz fluid per day. Dehydration has a DIRECT effect on your health and sense of well-being. Many adults report headaches, lethargy, aging skin and more when dehydrated.
Green and black teas are great for hydration despite being slightly caffeinated.

Hello, I have started the Leto diet after reading your book. I have not yet reached ketosis but am slowly loosing weight. The question I have is: what can I do for the Leto bad breath? It is bad and you said no to mints and sugar less gum.
Bad breath is a common issue while you are on a keto diet.
We have posted an article on this.
I hope this helps!
