How to Make Green Tea Sweeter
If you love green tea but find it’s too bitter, you don’t have to give up your favorite drink. Here are some tips on making your green tea a little sweeter without adding sugar or artificial sweeteners.
Choose Milder Tea
The most effective way to make green tea sweeter is to start with a milder green tea. Foragers Harvest Premium Jasmine Green Tea or Matcha Green Tea are mellow options that won’t shock your taste buds.
A drop of cream or half and half can help make the tea a little sweeter. If you prefer a non-dairy option, try adding a bit of almond, coconut, or oat milk.
Try Fruit Juice
Adding a teaspoon or two of fruit juice such as apple, pomegranate or grape juice will both sweeten the tea and give it a unique flavor.
Certain spices, such as cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and allspice, can make a cup of green tea a little sweeter. Alternatively, you can add some vanilla bean or a pinch of stevia to the tea.
Herbs like mint, sage, rosemary and basil can help to sweeten the taste of green tea.
Use Natural Sweeteners
If you need to sweeten your tea more, try using natural sweeteners such as honey, agave, almond syrup or maple syrup.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with different teas, juices, spices and sweeteners. With a bit of trial and error, you can find the perfect combination to make green tea a sweeter treat.
Green tea need not be a bitter experience. With just a few simple ingredients, you can make a cup of tea that’s both sweet and delicious.
