How Much Milk Tea You Should Consume Per Week? Is It Healthy Or Not?

Are you a milk tea lover? Warning: it might turns out with addiction and can harm your health.

In every social media you definitely are seeing different kind of posts such as travel goals and especially in foods with their own captions. \

Particularly for those who are milk tea lovers in which every day you can see in their “my day post”. In this article, we just want to raise awareness concerning on how much of milk tea to consume in a week.

Brief History of Milk Tea

Bubble tea, also known as pearl milk tea or boba milk tea, a Taiwanese tea-based drink invented in Taichung in the 1980s. Cambric tea, a sweetened hot-milk beverage, often made with a small amount of tea.

Why many people obsess with Milk Tea?

These days, teashops will offer a wide variety of teas and flavors to entice their adventurous clientele. Common flavors include strawberry, honeydew melon, apple, passion fruit, mango, and many many more.

It’s not quite clear why this particular drink took root while so many other food and drink fads faded into obscurity.

Perhaps it’s the fact that people here drink tea like other places drink water or maybe it’s because it’s an ideal snack/drink combo for people on the go.

The most likely reason though, is that it’s not just one drink but a thousand reinventions of the original. Yes, we still call it pearl milk tea but with so many variations found in so many tea shops throughout Taiwan, often the only thing they have in common is the pearls, and even those can be flavored.

How much you should consume milk tea in a week?

We all know that tea is healthy (alone) and milk is healthy (alone) too. Who is the culprit? The SUGAR! When we add all of them together, the approximate we add in cup of tea is 20grams (two teaspoon).

1 gram sugar- 4 calories, so only from sugar 20 calories= 80 calories! plus 100 ml milk (45 calories) and tea (almost no calories), if you drink 1 cup of tea gives you 125 calories. If you drink 3-4 cups a day than input from tea is 375- 500 calories.

For average male sugar in take is 40 grams per day and average female 25 grams. By drinking tea it will increase our sugar intake. You can drink 1 cup of tea per day but make sure you will not take sugar from other food stuff.

By mixing tea, milk and sugar, tea’s antioxidants will not be absorbed by our body.

Revelation from the Experts

On evening news show 24 Oras, Dietician and nutritionist Charmaine Manango shared and spoke that milk tea is a drink full of empty calories that can potentially lead to Type 2 Diabetes and heart problems.

Another Study:

Tea drinkers enjoy some protection against heart disease. But the benefits are completely wiped out if, like most of the British population, they add milk, researchers reveal today.

Tea has long been thought to have health benefits for the heart and in the prevention of cancer. But researchers from Germany, writing in the European Heart Journal, suggest that their findings about milk ought to lead to an urgent reassessment of the effect of tea on cancer prevention.

"Since milk appears to modify the biological activities of tea ingredients, it is likely that the anti-tumour effects of tea could be affected as well," said one of the authors, Verena Stangl, professor of cardiology at the Charité hospital, Berlin.

"It is essential that we re-examine the association between tea consumption and cancer protection to see if that is the case."

The team suggests that tea drinkers who usually add milk should drink it black for some of the time. Flavonoids in tea, called catechins, are thought to be responsible for its beneficial effects on the heart. The study found that a group of proteins in milk, called caseins, interacted with the tea to reduce the concentration of catechins.

The researchers measured the effects of drinking black tea, tea with milk and plain hot water on 16 women volunteers. Regular tests on the brachial artery of the forearm for two hours after drinking showed that black tea promoted dilation of the blood vessels. "We found that ... the addition of milk completely prevents the biological effect," said the lead author, Mario Lorenz, a molecular biologist.

Further tests in rats produced the same results. It could explain why Britain, a nation of tea drinkers, does not appear to enjoy protection from high rates of heart disease, say the authors.

"The well-established benefits of tea have been described in many studies," said Prof Stangl.

"Our results thus provide a possible explanation for the lack of beneficial effects of tea on the risk of heart disease in the UK, a country where milk is usually added."

June Davison, cardiac nurse at the British Heart Foundation, said the study highlighted the importance of looking at interactions between foods, but added that having a cup of tea could be helpful if it allowed people to relax.

"Leaving milk out of your tea is far less likely to help protect your heart health than other measures, such as taking regular exercise, avoiding smoking and eating a healthy balanced diet," she said.

Pleasurable drinks like bubble or milk tea are not totally bad for your health if you consume it properly. Spread Awareness by sharing this.
