is drinking too much of this unhealthy ?!

Question: Is drinking too much of this unhealthy ?
okay so everyday i drink tea a lot but now i've started drinking like the least 6 bottles of Snapple's a day or more. thats all I ever drink. is this bad for my health. Also I started drinking a lot of tea since I gave up on soda.

-please && thank you.


The issue with this is purely the sugar content. A snapple probably has about 30g of sugar a bottle, and if you are drinking six of these a day you will be diabetic by age 35. Not only this, but snapple is expensive. :(

A good alternative is Sobe Lifewater. They taste great and are much better for you, but still can run $1.25 a bottle unfortunately.

What is in this Snapple tea?
Does it have sugar in it?
Artificial sweetener?
Is it real tea or just tea flavour?
Is it green tea or black tea?
We need a lot more info to make a good judgement.

If it is plain, real, unsweetened (but also no artificial sweetener) green tea, then it is pretty healthy, though even so 6 bottles per day is a lot.

If it is some kind of fake sweetened tea flavoured crap then even 1 bottle is unhealthy. You've just switched your soda addiction to a fake tea addiction which isn't any better.

I did the same thing, but I drink green tea. with out sugar, it got so I could`nt afford it, so now I make it at home and fill up my bottles and take them with me. it is a lot cheaper. but try to drink a little more water, that is what I am doing, I am 64 years old, and just had a lot of blood work done, and everything was fine, my doctor said it was good drinking the green tea, I also take some supplements that I buy at wal mart, don`t cost much and it seams to be working. Good luck, and thanks for the question, I`v been waiting for a chance to tell someone about green tea.

Snapple Tea Contains High Levels of Sugar

If you already experience problems with your blood sugar levels, it may be a good idea for you to avoid Snapple tea. Unfortunately, the teas that Snapple has to offer contain high levels of sugar. Most of their teas contain more than 50 grams of sugar. Compare this to the 39 grams that can be found in a 12 oz Coca Cola. If you avoid drinking soda because of the sugar, then you will also probably want to stay away from Snapple tea.

Snapple Contains Levels of Carbohydrates

Much like other beverages and foods, Snapple tea does contain levels of carbohydrates. If you think that you are getting away scotch free of carbohydrates by drinking tea, then Snapple is probably not the best choice for you. In some cases you may also find that the amount of carbohydrates n Snapple tea is just as high, if not higher, than the amounts of carbohydrates in certain types of sodas.…

You gotta be careful with tea. I love tea too and I can get hooked on sweet tea easy. Anyways, to answer your question it can be unhealthy, 1 for the amounts of sugar (which I am assuming their is quite a bit in snapple) and 2 for the amounts of caffeine.
Caffeine can give you bladder infections and cause lumpy breasts and exaggerate pms symptoms. (Sorry I don't know if you are male or female, forgot to look.)

Anyway, I don't have issues with tea or soda anymore, I switched to juicing and drinking smoothies, it's literally changed my life-I know that sounds funny, but it's true.

Check out They have info on blenders, juicers and lots about the benefits of juicing and stuff like that.

All the Best!

its fine too drink tea alot just not snapple maybe use your used snapple bottles and brew some tea ahead of time and keep them in your fridge its fine too add a few squirts of honey too your tea but if you just drank normal tea you brew yourself its perfectly fine ( by the way TAZO passion tea is AMAZING)

To be honest, Snapple has a lot of sugar in it. Too much sugar can lead to Diabetes. With that much sugar, also comes caffeine, which can damage your nerves.
