Is there sugar added to Black Adder tea?

There is no added sweetener in the tea in any form. The sweetness in the tea is from the liquorice root and fennel seed.  We do know that this sweetness comes from two types of phenols, or plant constituents called trans-anethole and estragole, and therefore the tea has minimal carbohydrate content. These phenols metabolize differently to sugar/fructose and should not affect the blood sugar levels
