Although it feels as though winter will never end, spring’s warmer weather is creeping closer. Bulky sweater season is coming to a close, but it’s not getting to the gym that has us shaking in our boots. It’s the thought of giving up our favorite sweets and treats that has us dreading the summer slim down. One easy way we like to fight our cravings is by finding low-calorie, or better yet, no-calorie alternatives (ahem, tea, ahem). Read on to find tea substitutes for your cravings.
If saying no to dessert is your greatest weakness, this section is for you. Our Chocolate tea is a lovely substitute for those who enjoy biting into a warm brownie or a slice of chocolate cake. If ice cream is your thing, we recommend your sip on our Vanilla Comoro tea instead when the craving hits. It tastes similar to vanilla ice cream and is just as delicious over ice. The best part? It’s decaf so you can drink one (or two) before bed without the fear of a sleepless night. Have a birthday party coming up? Stay strong and enjoy a nice cup of Birthday tea instead of birthday cake. There may not be any icing, but it’s pretty dang good if we do say so ourselves.
So you have a hard time skipping your morning latte or evening brew? Our Chai tea, or specialty Chais like Chocolate Chai Supreme or Chai Hara, will help you bypass the coffee shop on your way to work. Can’t say no to a drink after a long day? Our New England Teamaker Hops taste similar to the hops in your favorite beer and Lapsang Souchong will remind you of a smooth glass of bourbon or whiskey.
If you find yourself constantly reaching for the candy jar, our selection of sweet, sugar-free teas will help satisfy that craving. If you’re a fan of fruity candies you’ll love our Fruit Teas. With flavors like Orange Passion Fruit, Strawberry Kiwi, Goji Berry, Blood Orange, Peach and Mango, these decaf teas will quell any fruit candy craving. If you like spicy, cinnamon candies, our bestselling Hot Cinnamon Spice tea is a perfect substitute. If mint candies are your weakness, our Chocolate Mint tea will surely hit the spot.

I love the Hot Cinnamon Spice tea. It is so sweet I find it hard to believe it is sugar and calorie free.
