German Rock Sugar
 
I know sugar is the devil, but I need to start drinking tea and Teavana sells this German Rock Sugar, anyone know anything about it? Is it raw sugar? Im sure it is better then regular sugar, but should I use it while dieting?

It's an insanely overpriced form of "raw sugar" or "evaporated cane juice," as opposed to typical white table sugar. Save your money to spend on better tea.

From a dietary perspective, it's just as bad (or not) as any other form of sugar.

Water is not always an acceptable substitute. Sometimes it needs help which is where the coffee bean, tea leaf or my favorite, fermentation comes into play. :)

Get some Sucralose.

Oh, and sugar is NOT the devil. Just use it sparingly and you will be fine.

The only thing worse than sugar is expensive sugar.

I'm a Teavana fan, but I've never used their sugar, as I have honey to use instead, but yeah like all of their stuff....money money money.

Tea is good without sugar.
