Honey in tea
Honey in tea is a delicious combination that has been used for centuries. However, there are some things to keep in mind when adding honey to your tea. In this article we discuss some tips and guidelines to ensure that you can enjoy honey in your tea to the fullest.
1. Different flavors of honey
There are different types of honey that you can add to your tea to add a different flavor and aroma. Thyme honey, for example, has a spicy taste with notes of mint and camphor. Eucalyptus honey has a stronger taste and a slightly bitter undertone, while acacia honey has a mild, sweet taste. Flower honey is a mixture of nectar from different flowers and has a rich and complex flavor with sweet and floral notes. Choosing the right honey for your tea can be a fun journey of discovery and can add an extra dimension to your tea moment.
2. Easy dosing with a honey dispenser
Our honey dispenser is a handy tool when using honey in the kitchen or in tea. The main advantage of a honey dispenser is that it avoids the hassle of spilling honey and makes it easier to measure out the right amount of honey. In addition, it keeps the honey clean and hygienic as it prevents dust and dirt from getting into the honey. Our honey dispenser also has a lockable cap to keep the honey fresh and prevent insects from entering. Using a honey dispenser can be a convenient and practical way to use honey without the mess.
3. How much honey to use in the tea?
Determining the right amount of honey for your tea may depend on personal preference and the intensity of the honey's flavor. It is generally recommended to start with one teaspoon of honey per cup of tea and then add more or less based on the desired taste. It is important to keep in mind that honey is a sweetener and too much honey can overwhelm the flavor of the tea and make the tea too sweet. So it is wise to start gently and add more honey if necessary.
4. Another warning about honey in tea!
We advise not to heat honey above 40-45 degrees. Wait a moment until your hot drink is at drinking temperature (or slightly cooler) and only then stir in honey. This way you get the most out of the honey .
One study showed that when honey is heated, it forms a compound called hydromethylfurfural that is potentially toxic and carcinogenic. The chemical structure of honey changes when heated, which increases the peroxide content.
- A bacterium that causes botulism, Clostridium botulinum, can survive in honey. About ten percent of the honey around the world contains traces of this bacteria. That is why it is better not to give honey to children under one year of age as a precaution.
- Warm milk with honey is of course not a good idea for someone with a lactose intolerance.
