Molasses Tea

Let’s talk about molasses tea…

I almost thought I was out or almost out of ideas for tea, but the health benefits of molasses—particularly blackstrap molasses— has me mixing the dark syrup into hot tea.

(Sorry, no picture yet.)

Blackstrap molasses is a good source of iron and calcium, and has a sweetness and a flavor to it that both sweetens and flavors your tea. So far, I have only made molasses tea with naturally decaffeinated tea (regular tea) and have not yet tried this with herbal, green, or black tea. The tea darkens even more and has a nice flavor. Without milk (almond/soy milk), it’s fine, but I like it best (so far) with almond milk. I like 2 spoonfuls in my tea.

This one’s probably best taken in the morning, noon, or afternoon (as you will need the nutrition throughout the day), but I last took it in the evening. Definitely use herbal tea or decaffeinated if you are going to drink this in the evening.

It’s natural.

It’s healthy.

It’s healing.
