Who doesn’t love sweet iced tea in the summer? There are many benefits of using natural healthy tea sweeteners instead of artificial sweeteners including increased control over weight gain and blood sugar levels. Explore how to naturally sweeten tea with Storehouse Tea.
Use Natural Honey to Naturally Sweeten Tea
One of the most popular ways to naturally sweeten tea is using honey! Using locally sourced, natural honey is a great way to not only support and save the bees but also ensure that you are getting a high-quality, natural sweetener from a brand you trust! Honey provides so many health benefits including micronutrients, aiding in sickness, and providing antioxidants. Here at Storehouse Tea, we source our delicious honey from All The Girls (ATG) Honey, a beekeeper at The Hildebrandt Building.
You can find her on Facebook @ATG All The Girls, Instagram @Beesincle, and in our shop!
Fresh Fruit Sweetens Tea & Adds Flavor
There’s nothing better than sitting in your backyard on a warm sunny day with a fruit-infused iced tea. In addition to adding a pop of color and flavor, fruit can be an excellent natural sweetener for tea. Pair your teas with a fruit of your choice and you can make a wonderful, new drink for summer parties and yourself.
Switch Out Your Sugar with Stevia
Change out your sugar packets with Stevia! Stevia leaves are some of the sweetest substances known to nature and a great solution when searching for how to naturally sweeten tea without sugar. These leaves are up to 300 times sweeter than sugar with 0 calories and no icky aftertaste! Just add a few leaves to your favorite (Storehouse Tea) blend of loose leaf tea as a sugar substitute.
Coconut Sugar Can Prevent Low Blood Sugar
Many people are substituting dairy products with Coconut milk. Did you know that you can also replace your regular sugar with Coconut sugar? Coconut sugar is produced from the sap of palm trees and comes with many health benefits including assistance with preventing hypoglycemia, as well as providing nutrients like iron, zinc, and calcium.
