Tea is naturally slightly alkaline. But beware of highly processed teas. Because additives can distort PRAL estimates. So always read food labels and stick with naturally brewed alkaline teas.

Acid-Alkaline Tea List
I list tea with the lowest PRAL index first. Because these have the lowest acid load. So the most alkalizing drinks show first. But you can click the food table headings to change sort order.
For the tea category, the average PRAL values are -0.32 per 100 grams. As tea is naturally a low-calorie drink, I do not include a PRAL per 100 calories column. To put this in context, compare with other nonalcoholic beverages in the Food Category List.
Your Alkaline Tea
Remember, factors such as growing conditions, variety, and preparation methods affect all food nutrients. USDA database values are an average of many samples. So your PRAL values for tea will vary from day to day. But they are always an estimate of actual acid load on your kidneys. Which I explain more in the notes about PRAL principles on the category list page.
