Dede Instant Thai Tea

Having tried and sort of liked the Thai Instant Coffee by DeDe, I wanted to try the Instant Thai Tea offering. I enjoy tea, mostly in the morning, and, like how I drink coffee, usually drink it "black", meaning without cream or sugar, and more than likely it is a herbal tea or a green tea, so I looked at the ingredient listing of this instant tea with trepidation. Instant Thai tea, sugar, non-dairy creamer (with glucose, palm kernel oil, casein and artificial colour), FD&C Yellow No. 6 and vanilla flavour make up this instant tea. I find it has a little too much sugar; my beautiful Bride added some black tea to it, to give it a little more flavour. Overall, it's not bad.

I tend to stay away from the non-dairy creamer in packaged food since I've realized that it's made of "hydrogenated oils". It's the type of oil that is used for long shelf life but it's bad for your (heart)healh. It's used in lots of snack foods, but I think in California they are trying to phase it out.

I recently got some real Thai tea, it's better to make it yourself (so you know what is in it).
