I just read the EmpowHer News article that says ice tea is the worst thing that someone is who is prone to kidney stones can drink (which is my husband), due to the oxalates in the iced tea.
Why is it specifically ice tea and not hot tea? Aren't they made from the same thing? Is it actually more about the quantity of tea? (it is easier to drink a large quantity of iced tea than hot tea). Is there any such thing as tea without oxalates? As the article says, we drink tea because we thought it was healthier than soda, and we get tired of drinking water.
