OK Afoot, I have not been counting calories for herbal tea unless I add something to it. So you made me feel better and I will continue my practice.

Some herbs produce natural sugars. This might lead to calories. However, if it's under 25 K/cals you'll burn those off just sitting and drinking your tea. Those are k/cals not worth the trouble counting.

"I can do all things if I just get off my but's and admit I'm in control of me!" SGM 1:1-5 The only real verse I need.

Never say you didn't have enough time: You have the same amount of time that was given to Helen Keller, Albert Einstein, William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar, Winston Churchill.

I have tea leaves and bags and neither have calories. If you are uncertain, visit the manufacturer's website and look for the nutritional data.

Hi, Lori!

I looked through my stash of teas and even the chai tea I have, with all the spices, has 0 calories. Hope that helps!

Wow - what a quick reply! Thanks.

I know there are a *few* calories, but my nutrition says herbal tea has 14 calories in 8 oz. I'm just wondering if anyone has an herbal tea that says that in the nutrition info.

flavored and instant teas may have sugar, but even black coffee can have as many as 4 calories per cup.

I like tea (okay, I LOVE tea). In the morning I will drink from 1 to 4 cups of decaffinated tea, and after dinner I'll have another 1 to 3 cups of either decaf or some herbal. Minor complaint - my nutrition doesn't have decaf tea, but I just use brewed (other minor complaint - the 'units' are in ounces, not cups, but also okay).

Here's the real 'thing' - my nutrition lists herbal tea as having calories! Any idea why? The camomile tea I've got lists 0 calories. I haven't got a box of other herbal that has nutrition info right now.

And this isn't a 'rounding error' on my nutrition - you know, each cup has 2 calories, but 4 cups has 12 or whatever.

Do some herbal teas have sugar in them or something?
