Is Tea Keto Friendly?
The keto diet has been taking the world by storm – many swear by its exceptional weight loss and health benefits. As a tea lover, if you are on a keto diet or planning to go on one, there’s good news for you! You don’t have to give up tea in order to stick to your diet.
Although many keto fanatics say that tea isn’t strictly permitted, there are ways of making your cup of tea more keto friendly – for example, by drinking it plain and without sugar or milk.
So, if you’re wondering how you can continue to enjoy your daily cup while staying true to your diet, read on and let us give you the lowdown!
Which types of tea are keto friendly?
Most types of teas are keto-friendly by themselves. For example, black tea, white tea, green tea and oolong tea are all keto-friendly since they are high in fat and low on carbohydrates. However, tea flavoured with fruits and other ingredients that contain sugar are definitely out of the question if you are on a keto diet.
If you are more of a herbal tea person, the same principle goes. It depends on the herbs and the ingredients that go into making the tea. If you are looking to calm yourself down, then lavender and chamomile are good options. However, if you like the caffeine and are looking for something with a little more taste, then mint and rooibos teas are definitely a must-try.
The tastiest tea in India you can try for a keto-friendly diet comes from the green hills of Munnar. These freshly picked tea leaves are high in nutrients and low in carbohydrates, making them the perfect addition to your keto diet.
