Last month, I traveled to Tagaytay with a few bloggers to witness the launch of one of the most innovative products in the drinks industry-- TrueTea Iced Tea with Green Stevia! "What is so special about this drink?" you may ask. Well, for one, this iced tea has low calorie and get this-- NO SUGAR ADDED! I still can't believe there's an iced tea that promotes health and wellness. How??? Read on! Sharing with you photos from that day...
Before sharing with you photos and stories from the launch, I would like to share with you photos from our tambay and super delicious lunch in One Tagaytay Hotel!
TrueTea is the FIRST iced tea in the market that has zero sugar and low in calories! It is manufactured by GX International, a Filipino pharmaceutical company and distributor of Green Stevia natural sweetener. Made from natural black tea & Stevia leaves as natural sweetener, it only has 20 calories and Vitamin C to make it healthier. It is FDA approved and Halal certified. :)
TrueTea does not use sugar as sweetener--it uses Stevia leaves! Stevia is a sugar substitute derived from a plant. It has no calorie, no harmful toxins, 150x sweeter than sugar in the same concentration and studies suggest it might have extra health benefits.Once consumed it breaks down into glucose and steviol which we naturally excrete.
Let us help GXI in their mission to decrease the incidence of Diabetes and practice a healthier lifestyle through our choices. Green Stevia and TrueTea Iced Tea are available in Robinsons Supermarket, SM Supermakets, Rustans Supermarket, Landmark Supermarket, Waltermart, Shopwise, Pure Gold, Super 8, Mercury Drug, Fisher Mall, Cash and Carry, Market Market and so much more!

What is TrueTea Iced Tea?
Why is it sweet if it does not contain sugar???
Writing our Thank Yous to TrueTea and Green Stevia for giving us a healthier option when it comes to drinks and sweets!
Now, what is Green Stevia?
It is purified powdered extract from Stevia leaves, another product of GX international which is a good substitute for sugar. Use it for cooking, baking and making drinks! Perfect for health conscious people (like me in 2017 haha) and those who needs to watch their sugar intake.

"Guess the sugar content" game!
We failed to guess even 1 correctly! Did you know that normal iced tea has higher sugar content than soft drinks???? Wow! Flavored drink has the highest with 11 teaspoons! Iced tea has 10 teaspoons, Energy Drink has 9, Soft drinks 9 & Fruit Juice with 7.
And do you know that our recommended sugar intake per day is only 6 teaspoons for women & 9 teaspoons for men? Over, over na tayo guys! This could really be detrimental to our health. :(
