Sweet Tooth? Natural Sugar Alternatives For Your Tea

Halloween has left you with bags of candy and an uncontrollable yearning for sweets. Your sweet tooth is at an all time high but most of us know sugar isn’t the healthiest food item. We pour this highly addictive substance in our tea and treats but wherever possible, you should try to reduce your consumption. To save yourself from cavities and tooth decay this season, take a look at some of our recommended sugar alternatives to wake up your cup of tea without uprooting a tooth ache.


Enjoy this natural sweetener thanks to busy bees. Add some to your tea for an antioxidant punch.


Spice up your morning cup of tea with cinnamon. This super spice adds subtle sweetness without the extra calories.


The natural sugar found in milk adds a touch of sweetness to that morning cup of tea. The lactose in milk is all you need.

Lemon or Lime

The sour and tart taste associated with these two fruits can also add a natural sweetness flavor to your teas.


Full of vitamin C, this option will liven up your cup and add extra benefits.

Coconut Sugar

Get a little tropical and use coconut sugar in a cup of tea. Made from the sap of coconut flowers, this natural sugar comes in block, paste, or granulated form.


Honey has a sister and her name is Agave. The taste of agave nectar is comparable, though not identical, to honey. Many people who do not like the taste of honey find agave to be a more preferable choice. 

Maple Syrup

Maple syrup is not just for your pancakes and pastry treats. It makes a great sweetener or flavoring agent.

Other than the above alternatives, most of our loose leaf teas are so naturally sweet that they provide minimal or no additive of sugar. Fruity or earthy leaves like pomegranate and green tea are naturally sugar-free and add an extra nutritional kick to any beverage. You can use our Green Leaves found here or try our more fruity teas like Orange Grapefruit or Mango Peach
