Sugar and honey are the most common ingredients people add to tea to make it sweet and tastier. If you’re trying to make your favorite beverage healthier and more delicious, here are some of the most nutritious things to add.


Cinnamon is the best thing to start adding to your beverages, including tea, this fall because it’s super cozy and nutritious. This flavorful spice has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and it’s a great natural sweetener for tea.

Grapefruit Juice

You probably know that lime and lemon juice make healthy additions to your tea, but have you tried using grapefruit instead? Grapefruit is rich in nutrients and it can help increase your metabolism and boost skin health.

Basil Leaves

Adding just one or two basil leaves to your cup of tea will add more flavor and make this beverage even more relaxing.


Ginger is not particularly tasty, but drinking tea with just a few slices of fresh ginger can help reducing inflammation and pain, and improve digestion. Add some lemon juice and honey to tea in case you need to make it less spicy.
