However, these sweeteners should be consumed in moderation. Although maple syrup is considered healthier than white table sugar, it still contains about a generous amount sugar.
Natural sweetener herbs: stevia, licorice
Stevia and licorice are herbs that contain natural sweetening flavors. Stevia in particular is currently being used to produce light beverages without resorting to artificial sweeteners.
Licorice may also be made into a tea that may provide energy and help fight infection and digestive disorders. Learn more about this herb before using it: HERE
Pureed or chopped fruit
Why resort to flavored teas when you can make your own and at the same time no longer need added sugars?
Brew a pitcher of black or green iced tea and then add pureed or chopped fruits to add delicious flavors and natural sweetness to your teas.
A few good examples of fruits for you to try are: strawberries, raspberries, apple, peach or mango.
Adding fragrant herbs to your iced teas as it brews will enhance its flavor and add benefits to your regular iced tea. Do away with sugar, natural or artificial, as the solution to enhance the flavor of your tea.
Lavender and roses are great herbs to give your tea a floral profile.
Peppermint and spearmint will add freshness unlike any other herb. Mints are ideal for any iced tea recipe in the heat of summer days.
Lemon balm and lemongrass are the herbs to add to your iced tea when you want a zesty flavor.
What about a spicy undertone? Ginger and cinnamon add a burst of flavor and, in the case of cinnamon, a sensation of sweetness as well. Don’t choose between the two; just add both spices to your iced tea.
