Many people love to sweeten their tea with honey. The main reasons are because it tastes delicious and it's so much better for you than sugar! Honey sweetens without adding any unhealthy ingredients to your drink, it adds goodness instead. Raw honey in your tea can soothe, heal sore throat and coughs and revitalise you at the same time.
An added benefit is that honey tastes sweeter than sugar, so a little goes a long way. One teaspoon of honey per cup of tea is a good rule of thumb. Be sure to add the honey after the tea has steeped and the water has cooled a little. If the water is too hot it takes the goodness out the honey and can make the honey taste a little bitter.
