Everyday I drink Black Tea; Lipton brand specifically. For the past 5 years or so I have been consuming it and honestly the taste is awful. I have added Honey before (The good ‘natural’ kind from Whole Foods, not the cheep artificial corn syrup stuff.) and I never put it in my tea right. The honey always condenses to the bottom: so I end up drinking dishwater until I get to the bottom. Then all of the sudden I end up warm honey near the last drop. Not cool…

I have put sugar in my tea in the past and it tastes great. However, the problem with adding sugar is (*cough* my crazy thought process is coming out) I am simi-health cautious. Adding sugar to my beverage is ridiculous… I mean how society consumes and produces food adds sugars to mostly everything; I cannot add sugar to something possibly beneficial to my health.

I mean with Friedreich’s Ataxia and not walking like I use too- I need to seriously think about my sugar intake. About 1/10 people have type 1 from this disease. If I can avoid type 2 from avoiding environmental factors by not drinking gallons of Coke I will definitely put effort in it.

Now just so we are clear- everything in life takes balance. I am by no means a health nut. I hate to admit it, but my favorite soda is DP, aka Dr. Pepper. Why add sugar to my black tea when I can tolerate it solo? I will just drink DP to balance the healthy-to-unhealthy ratio.
