Tea is a great diabetes-management agent. They have 0 GI index and just one calorie. Identifying a suitable variety of tea and consuming them with no sugar can work wonders for your health. 

We have listed a few varieties of tea that can help you manage diabetes and other existing health conditions. 

Green Tea

Green tea is the most common and most beneficial tea available today. They have anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic properties. Green tea is one of the richest sources of polyphenols, a compound rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and other health agents that prevent inflammation, diabetes, cancer, and heart disease. Green tea also sensitizes cells for better sugar metabolism. They optimize blood sugar control and prevent potential spikes that cause hyperglycemia.

Black Tea

Black tea comes second to green tea. It contains fewer polyphenols as compared to green tea. However, because of its diabetes-preventive properties, it can prevent full-blown diabetes from the “pre-diabetes” stage. Additionally, black tea helps stimulate the healthy secretion of insulin.

Chamomile Tea

Chamomile Tea is a herbal tea that helps with blood sugar regulation. It also helps improve digestive health, sleep quality, and protects the body against cancer. Some properties present in Chamomile Tea can also boost your immunity, cure a sore throat and other flu-like symptoms. 

Peppermint Tea

Stress management is an integral part of diabetes treatment. If you are dealing with stress and struggling to manage the condition, go for peppermint tea. It can also treat occasional headaches and bad breath. Some experts also believe that it can reduce menstrual cramps. Plus, the aroma is WOW!

Hibiscus Tea 

Are you looking for a diabetes management agent that reduces blood pressure, bad cholesterol, and weight? Then hibiscus tea is the right choice for you. Did we mention it also fights harmful bacteria and supports liver health? 


Adding tea to your meal plan and diet can help manage your condition. However, prepare tea without sugar and milk to derive maximum benefits. All herbal, green, and black tea are sources of antioxidants and other beneficial nutrients.
