Tejava contains no sugars or carbohydrates and nothing artificial, therefore, the answer is a resounding yes! This is true for all our flavored ready-to-drink teas and tea-pods as well. If you’re looking for a keto-friendly beverage, Tejava is a great choice! Tea has been associated with various health benefits for centuries, making Tejava an excellent beverage choice whether you follow a ketogenic diet or not. Assuming you do, tea – hot or cold – is a beverage that can be consumed in abundance on keto. Just be cognizant of your personal caffeine limits. Tejava Original Black Tea contains 70mg of caffeine per 16.9 oz. serving – about a 1/3 the amount of caffeine in coffee.
Looking for other ways to add black tea to your keto diet? Try using our Original Black Tejava to make your own bulletproof-style tea. The idea for Bulletproof® coffee came from Tibetan tea makers adding yak milk to their tea. If you’re drinking tea on an empty stomach, the healthy fats in this recipe provide the added benefit of making the tea gentler on your stomach. In addition, the beneficial flavonols in black tea may be more easily absorbed by adding fats using this keto recipe.
Try using Tejava Original Black tea, iced or hot following this recipe:
- 8 oz. of Tejava Original Black Tea
- 1 tsp of MCT oil or coconut oil
- 1-2 T of unsalted grass-fed butter
Blend all ingredients in a blender until frothy – if you’re having iced tea, add ice and blend again. Enjoy!
If you’re looking to keep it simple, try the old-fashioned way and enjoy a cup of hot Tejava with a splash of heavy cream or whole milk. Non-dairy substitutes of unsweetened nut milks are also keto friendly options that can be added to black tea.
Tejava is available in ready-to-drink unsweetened Original Black, Peach, Mint and Raspberry and now in Tejava Origins Hojicha Green and Fujian Oolong. Lightly flavored tea-pods are available in Original Black, Peach, Pineapple Mango, Apple Cinnamon, Vanilla Chai, Raspberry and Mint.
