Do you crave teas that are naturally sweet without adding sugar or honey? Are you craving something with more of a subtle sweetness? 

Kuzoo and I have compiled a short list of naturally sweet teas that may peak your interest. Ranging from true teas to herbal infusions.

Herbal teas tend to have a naturally sweet aroma and taste to them. Making them great for the novice tea drinker 

Teas from the Camellia Sinensis plant (true tea) can have more of a bitter and less sweet taste. But not all true teas are created this way. Some true teas can be bitter and sweet at the same time!

Below we have a variety of teas to try that will help satisfy your sweet tea cravings. 

True Teas 

True teas can be naturally sweet as well. But not how we usually think sweet to be, where it has a sweet sugary taste, it has more of a light sweet taste. 

Aged Pu-erh is on the list of naturally sweet teas. Not all of them are sweet at a young age but they tend to get sweeter with age. Pu-erh tea comes from china, it is aged and fermented, some can be aged for 30+ plus years.

Jasmine tea itself is a flower and is most commonly infused with green tea as the base. I added it to the true tea category because you are not drinking the actual jasmine flower you are drinking the base tea that is flavored with jasmine flowers. 

But not all jasmine tea is flavored with real flowers. Higher quality jasmine tea is infused with real flowers.

Jasmine has a very fragrant flowery scent and taste that is delicious on its own without any sugar. It is a nice way to start your day or to end a meal. 

Let us not forget about the beautiful light green liquid called matcha! Matcha is also another true tea that has a natural sweet taste, even bitter matcha has a light natural sweet taste. The higher the grade the more “sweet” it becomes. 

Herbal Infusions 

A lot of fruit blended teas have a natural sweet taste. Although if brewed for an extended amount of time they can turn bitter. 

Hydrangea Serrata or tea of heaven is a plant that is mostly found in mountainous areas in Japan or Korea. This plant can be reduced down to a tea which has a natural sweet taste. 

The hydrangea serrata is rare plant that has a unique tasting experience that is well worth the investment. It starts off with an earthy vibe ending with a sweet dew taste that leaves you feeling like you just pampered yourself. 

Rose tea is a naturally sweet tea that pairs well with desserts or on its own. It has a light flowery taste & aroma making it a wonderful way to relax at the end of a stressful day.

Chai tea is another great naturally sweet with a slight spicy kick at the end. It is like turning a warm pumpkin pie into a drink that pairs very well with milk of your choice.  


As you can see there a variety of naturally sweet teas but of course this is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to teas that have that natural sweet goodness! 

Remember these teas are not sweet because they have sugar in them. These lovely teas are naturally sweet on their own. 

Experiment with different flavors to find that perfect cup to satisfy your sweet tea craving.
