Dessert Teas: Paleo?

Hello, I completely avoid sugar as much as possible, and I love drinking dessert teas as a sub for any sweets. However, I find that many have candied fruits, marshmallow or chocolate pieces in the blend. Though I do not actually consume them, I am wondering if the sugar seeps into the tea? Perhaps it's better to be more selective when it comes to my teas. Teavana in particular has a lot of these additives. Thoughts?

It's funny that was their response to someone directly asking how many calories were in their dessert line of teas, out of the box.

"Without any added sweetener, milk or creamer, our teas have zero calories" -- the dessert teas all have added sweetners

Interesting, trying to look into how many calories / carbs would be in there, I came across this page:

Where Teavana claims "zero calories" then links to a broken link where the nutrition facts should have been. If it tastes sweet with marshmallow / chocolate / fruit, I don't see how they're getting it down to 0.

yes. They are there to sweeten the tea. Try roobios or a chia tea, the spice is better than the sweet.
