Tea can affect glucose levels but the extent is dependent on certain factors. The caffeine in tea and especially the added sugars cause a rise in blood glucose levels. When paired with biscuits, it results in a high glycemic index. This is because biscuits are rich in carbohydrates and free sugars which harm the body.

A healthy body with a cup of tea
• A better alternative to biscuits can be considered, like sourdough or multigrain toast. It has easy digestibility and a low glycemic index. Have them with green tea which reduces insulin resistance.
• Consider healthier options like mixed nuts, fruit, peanut butter, sprouts, etc.
• Try to limit the usage of added sugars. It disregulates carbohydrate metabolism.
• Lactose from milk can spike glucose levels. Instead of tea with milk, you can try black tea, lemon tea, or green tea.

Milk (or other dairy products) was found to increase insulin resistance. The added sugars further increased the risk of Type 2 diabetes by 30%. Artificial sweeteners were found to be a good substitute in such cases. A diet with a high glycemic load and low glycemic index is preferred to prevent Type 2 diabetes. Therefore, it is crucial to regulate the intake of carbs for a healthier lifestyle.
