    Does anyone know anyways to sweeten green tea in a healthy way? I don't mind drinking it but it tastes pretty bland. I know honey is an option. Any other ideas? Thanks!

    Natural sugar or "sugar in the raw" Its granulated, but once disolved it should be ok.

    Don't brew it more than 2 minutes so it's not to bitter than add honey .

    Make sure the water isn't at boiling point or it will burn the tea - let the kettle boil then leave it for a minute or two. Sencha green tea tastes much better than normal green tea. The bitterness is actually all the good stuff (providing the tea leaves aren't burnt)
    Try xylitol as a sweetener - it's made from birch trees and is good for your teeth!

    In Japan green tea is, with one exception, never sweetened. The one exception is a sugary concoction made from matcha, the finely-milled green tea used in the tea ceremony. This drink is only found in the hot summer months. However, matcha powder is nowadays often used as a flavoring in cakes, ice creams, and other desserts.

    Natural maple syrup, not the high fructose poison that is passed off as maple syrup.

    German rock sugar. Sweetens without taking away from the flavor of the tea.
