This follows from your post to the thread about green tea. I bought Xylitol, but seem to need tons of it to get my tea sweet enough, or to get any sweet taste at all. The more of it I use, the more I worry about its side effect of diarrhea and bowel irritation. I can't remember the brand I bought, but its a major one. (I'm out of town until next week, so can't check the pantry!) What brand do you use? How much of it do you need to use to sweeten a mug of tea? I've tried Stevia, but just can't get used to the aftertaste. Sugar makes me jittery, can trigger the fibro-flu feeling, so I have to be careful how much sugar I eat, as in as little as possible, when I remember what it does to me! Short memory sometimes... Anyway, tea is one of my favorite topics, so I was pleased to see that thread. Peace, Beth.
