It is Honest Tea non sweetened Peach Ginger Tea. Maybe you could heat it up.

My parents with both heavy sugar users, Ugh.
No they were not diabetics. Actually I know of no one in my extended family that is a T2.
There is some rumor that my grandfather was “old age onset” but not much is remembered about it.

For me I after giving up sugary drink around the late 70’s
My body has adjust to not having sweets, real or fake.
It did not stop me from being a diabetic.
By mistake I was given sweet Tea instead of unsweetened. I just gagged and just about through up.
Sweet food is a learned response, it can be unlearned.

Japanese miso is fermented soy bean, it can be added to a casserole or stew at the end of cooking, or adding a teaspoon to a cup of hot water it makes a lovely warming drink. I buy it in the supermarket.
