How many calories in a cup of tea?
29 August 2017
Tea is one of the healthiest beverages, consumed by millions of people across the world daily. Although we know about the health benefits of tea we often get asked the question – how many calories in a cup of tea? So we consulted our Nutritionist about this.
Green and Black Teas are considered a low calorie beverage with just 2 calories in 200ml, however this will obviously depend on how it is served i.e. if milk or sugar are added which is difficult to quantity without the exact amount.
It is important to remember that calories are a measurement of energy from food, not of fat or what else is in your diet. Tea has many nutritional benefits such as it’s high antioxidant content and anti-inflammatory benefits. A healthy diet is incorporating food and drinks into your diet that benefit and support your body naturally.
