7 Organic Agave Nectars Perfect for Tea
Everyone knows that tea is loaded with antioxidants and other health benefits. However, when you add a spoonful of sugar and a half-ounce of cream to your tea, all of those health benefits quickly disappear.
If you’re going to drink a healthy beverage, why not choose a healthy sweetener to go along with it? We’re proud to have seven different organic agave nectars for tea, coffee, and cocktail-lovers. While the final product isn’t technically USDA-certified organic yet, the actual blue agave nectar in the sweetener is organic.
Our almond flavored blue agave nectar is perfect in black teas with high oxidization levels. We’re especially fond of this syrup in really smoky teas like lapsang souchong.
This drink syrup is perfect for tea-drinkers who just want a sweetener with no additional flavor. Add it to any kind of tea that you’d like to sweeten (green, black, red, rooibos, oolong, white, etc.) and you’ll love the results. Plus, with just 15 calories per serving, the nutritional edge is hard to beat!
Our blood orange organic agave nectar is probably most commonly used to sweeten cocktails. However, we think it goes really great in green teas – iced or hot.
Our caramel flavored blue agave nectar is perfect for black teas like earl gray. Just a little bit goes a long way when it comes to this syrup. After all, our organic agave nectars don’t taste overly-sweet. Rather, we focus on the true flavor that’s printed on the label of the bottle.
We like to use this organic agave nectar in black teas. However, we also keep a bottle on our cocktail bars and use it for all kinds of drinks, from white Russians to Irish coffee.
Hazelnut tends to pair well with most black teas. Recently, we started adding a teaspoon of this syrup to chai teas. Chai has such a great spice flavor that mellowing it out (and sweetening it) with a hazelnut syrup is the perfect way to mix things up.
Last, but not least, is our French Vanilla syrup. Though we often promote this drink syrup for tea, it’s actually a great kitchen ingredient, too. Try slipping it into your next baked goods recipe; you won’t be disappointed!
