Sweeter than a Coke, 'Healthy' Iced Tea Brands 

Even while tea is healthy, too much sugar can make it unhealthy, which is prevalent in store-bought bottled iced teas. 

Many iced tea brands tout their antioxidants and vitamins, but many have too much added sugar. 

Some iced teas have more sugar than a 12-ounce Coke, which has 39 grams. 


Mary Sabat MS, RDN, LD says "Snapple offers a range of flavored iced teas that are often perceived as a healthier alternative to soda,"  

one of the most popular bottled iced tea companies. 

However, their Peach Tea and Lemon Tea variants have more sugar than a can of Coke." 

One 16-ounce container, which is easy to drink in one sitting, contains 40 grams of added sugar.
