Is black tea ok during 12-hour fast before having bloodwork done?

I have no problem going without any food all morning, but do you think a cup of black tea with no cream or sweetener would skew the bloodwork results? I do enjoy my morning ritual of a cup of tea with my book before starting my workout and my day.

Not sure what the parameters of your fast are, but could you just have hot water with lemon?

I forgot to bring my Jetboil with me camping once this summer, and was denied a hot cup of anything for one morning. It sucked but I lived to tell about it.

You're right. I guess it sounds spoiled to say I hate to be denied if there is not a justifiable reason. Of course I can suck it up for one morning....

Probably not, but why take the risk of mucking up the tests? It's only for one morning, you'll spend weeks trying to deal with the consequences of a bad blood test.

Caffeine increases lipolysis so I think it would skew your test
