Honey for tea - what temperature should it be? When to add it?
There are those who do not part with a mug or a cup of warm tea all year round, but in the fall and winter the popularity of this drink reaches record values. This is due to the warming and health-promoting properties of both the tea itself and various beverages prepared on its basis. In the colder part of the year, we enrich the infusion with citrus, spices or ... honey. This liquid gold is full of beneficial ingredients to support the body, but is adding honey to hot tea a good idea? Does honey lose its properties in hot tea?
Honey - what are its properties and what is the best one?
The type of honey depends on the type of raw material obtained by bees for production. We have multiflorous, buckwheat, linden, honeydew and many others. The properties, taste, color and texture of each are slightly different. Used regularly, honey can fight colds, calm down and make it easier to fall asleep, or strengthen the blood system.
When is it worth adding honey to tea?
Tea with honey and lemon is recommended for colds, especially in its early stages. While consuming the infusion, we can count on the health-promoting properties of honey (it is worth reaching for linden honey because of its warming and soothing effect during bronchial and sinus infections), but also to warm up pleasantly.
Honey for tea will also work as a sugar substitute - it has a little less calories and definitely more beneficial ingredients. A good tea with honey and spices can replace dessert.
Honey can also change the taste of tea, not just sweeten it. When added to black tea, it will mask its bitterness, but it will not dominate the whole drink. In small amounts, it can also create an interesting flavor composition with green tea.
What kind of honey for tea?
Any honey will work as an addition to tea, it all depends on our preferences. Buckwheat honey will be sharp and expressive, heather honey not too sweet, goldenrod honey slightly acidic and multiflorous honey is probably the most universal - sweet and delicate.
Honey for tea - what temperature?
At what temperature does honey lose its properties? Can you add honey to hot tea? As you probably guessed - the higher the temperature, the less properties our honey has. The optimal temperature for honey is around 35 degrees Celsius, because this is the temperature in the hive. However, it loses most of its properties at temperatures above 45-50 degrees. So if we want to use honey for health, and not only for taste, we should cool the tea significantly before adding it - the tea should be warm, not hot.
