How Many Calories in a Cup of Tea?Posted Date:9-Mar-2023
It depends - although, for the most, it’s good news. When we’re talking about Calories in Tea, specifically those from the Camellia sinensis plant, expect no more than two calories per 8-oz serving.
When we’re talking about Herbal Tea or Fruit Tisanes, things get a little more complicated. Peppermint Tea, for example, has about 2.4 calories, while Hibiscus can have up to 37 calories.
Nevertheless, it is additions such as milk and sugar that contribute most to calorie intake in your morning cuppa. With semi-skimmed, you’re looking at around 13 calories. Whole milk, on the other hand, has about 19 calories. Two teaspoons of sugar, perhaps unsurprisingly, boasts 30 calories - or more!
