If you have a sweet tooth but you’re cutting back on calories or sugar, one of the most satisfying dessert substitutes is a really tasty herbal tea. If you haven’t tried herbal dessert teas in recent years, you might be surprised how sweet, flavorful, spicy and fruity they can be. Over the years, I’ve found several I love.
This is an amazing tea. It’s got a wonderful, rich, mellow sweetness that really makes me feel like I’ve had a treat. Even without sweetener.
Try it with cream. Red tea is
packed with antioxidants, and naturally has no caffeine. Some drinkers with anxiety disorders or high blood pressure report that it soothes and relaxes them. It’s a wonderful treat.
This is a wonderful combination of chocolate and strawberry that’s not too intense. It’s very satisfying with honey.
This seems to be a “love it or hate it” tea. The flavors just aren’t quite what some people expect.
But if you love it, it will become a favorite for years to come.
This Maple Ginger tea is both sweet and spicy, with a wonderful flavor you can enjoy anytime. It's great for after dinner, but it can even be nice with breakfast.
This tea lacks the bitterness a lot of orange teas have. It’s just like it sounds: sweet and orange, especially good in summer and fall. Perfect for when you’re in the mood for orange.
A mostly peach tea with a touch of blackberry and passion fruit to shake up the mellowness of the peach flavor a little bit.
You may find yourself ordering this one by the jumbo bag. It tastes just like it sounds. It has some sweetness on its own from the organic stevia, and it tastes like a candy cane with chocolate.
This tea is designed to replace dessert and taste like sweet lemon. It blends apple, orange peel, chamomile, rose petals, licorice root and ginger with green rooibos.
