Is Tea Keto Friendly?

RSS

Short answer and long answer - Yes!

Virtually all tea is Keto safe and one of the main beverages that people will switch to when starting or maintaining a Keto diet as opposed to plain old water. This compounds with the benefits of tea such as better skin, digestion and metabolism rates ensuring that you really can't go wrong with the switch.

Starting this diet is easy for some and harder for others - which I believe depends mostly on which types of foods you were mostly eating in the first place. If you were mostly eating takeaway foods and guzzling cans of energy drink and soda prior to starting this diet you're probably going to have a hard time and experience some Keto shock.

For me, thanks to my relatively healthy upbringing and daily tea consumption - it was pretty easy! I can also attest to the results and noticed significant weight loss faster than most any diet - and is fairly effective at getting rid of that last bit of belly fat.


How does Keto work?

The short and easy version is this -
When going about your daily life, be it watching the latest episode of game of thrones, walking your dog, or taking out the garbage, your body needs energy to move and perform these actions. Where will it normally get this energy from?
Carbohydrates.

If your body is very low on Carbs, your body will enter a state called Ketosis which essentially means your body will be using fat as fuel rather than Carbs. This is a basic rule of the human body and cannot be broken, which is why this diet is so effective. You know how some diets work for some and not others?

Keto by its very nature plays by the rules that the human body has set for itself and cannot be broken. In other words if you're on the Keto diet - your body has no choice other than to lose weight.

Which Teas Should I Not Drink on the Keto Diet?

Avoid any teas with sugar (luckily none we sell have any sugar), and avoid any teas with fruit or fruit based teas. Everything else is perfectly fine.
You'll find a lot of people using Chicory tea as a replacement for coffee when on the Keto diet, or simply making the switch to some healthy green tea which still contains caffeine but provides you with more of an even distribution of buzz rather than the spiked high and low of coffee.

Brilliant Herbal Tea

I give you 5 stars on everything. The service is quick, your pricing is reasonable. You have a easy website to use and the description of your tea is very informative.
I also find that the tea is doing exactly what you said it would do for my husband. He is very happy with it. Planning on buying the Turmeric Tea later. Can I use the Turmeric Tea in hot milk instead of water. I currently make it with the spice Turmeric, ginger, a little black pepper, honey and coconut oil with hot milk to help with my type 2 diabetes and also my arthritis.

Hi Narelle, thanks for your great review! Re Tumeric Tea: Yes it's very common for people to place this with milk - which I'll add to the teas description now on the website if that information isn't there!

The tea is delicious and arrived quickly. Would definitely buy again!!

Hi Clare, thank you for your review - much appreciated! This one is blended in house with fresh leaves.
Rich and Flavoursome

I love hibiscus tea after having been given some as a gift from Bali. I have been looking everywhere for something similar and am delighted with the Organic product from Tea Life! You don't need much tea to create a good strong cup and I manage to get at least two mugs worth out of the same flowers. In tea heaven!

Thank you for your review Keva! Definitely not much is needed, with a few customers saying on their first brew they made it waaaaaay too strong.
Cocoa husk tea

Delicious, and organic!
I’m very pleased with my purchase.

Hi Tracy, Thanks for your review! That's a good question and I'm still unsure why too! I'm trying to find out, along with trying to source this for a cheaper rate. The inside parts are called 'nibs' and really very very cheap when compared with the husk.
Yarrow tea

Ordered this tea to use for its antinflammatory properties. It smells lovely, packaged in resealable bag and is very mild to drink. Appears fresh.

Hi Rosalyn, Thank you for your review on our Yarrow tea!
