Inside: If you’re looking for ways to make Iaso Tea taste better, here are some tips and ideas to give your detox tea a little more “oomph”. Contains Amazon affiliate links.
First of all, I’d like to start by saying, I didn’t find Iaso Tea to taste that bad. In fact, it really just tastes like water with a slight hint of herbal tea flavor.
Now, the only time I have had Iaso Tea taste “bad” is when I made it stronger, which made it taste bitter. Other than that, it should taste like REALLY watered down tea.
Now, having said that, I realize a LOT of folks out there don’t like tea, no matter what AND…
Some people don’t like to drink water… can’t stand the stuff and will take soda pop, juice, or pretty much anything else over water ANY day.
So, if that’s the case with you, check out the following…
How to make Iaso Tea Taste better:
1. Flavor it with tea you DO like
Some people don’t like the taste of just “regular” tea but they like flavored teas such as ginger or peppermint. Try to keep it as natural as possible.
For example: I love ginger tea, and my kids love peppermint tea… so when trying to get THEM to drink it, I’d warm some up (they don’t like cold/iced tea) and add a peppermint tea bag. And for myself, if I wanted some flavor I’d add a ginger tea bag.
So if YOU like a particular flavor of tea, add a bag of it to a cup of Iaso Tea!
2. Infuse it with fruit
Have you ever seen (or tried) infused water where strawberries, blueberries, slices of lemon, orange, or lime, etc. are added to it?
Well, you could do the same with your Iaso Tea. Since it basically tastes like water anyway, adding the fruit can add some flavor.
3. Make Lemonade-Iced Tea
Kind of along the lines of suggestion #2, you can add lemon juice and slices of lemon, along with some raw honey to make it both tart and sweet.
If you choose to go with honey as your sweetener, keep in mind that raw honey is best! Try not to get that smooth, pretty, golden one sold in the condiment aisle of most stores… go for as natural and minimally-processed as possible for BEST health benefits.
And if honey’s not your cup of tea (pun DEFINITELY intended), you can try other natural sweeteners such as agave nectar, stevia, xylitol or even evaporated cane juice (unbleached sugar) instead! And the final suggestion is to…
4. Be Sure To Follow Package Directions
Now if you’re finding your tea to be strong and bitter, be sure that you’re making it according to the instruction on the packet and not using less water than recommended or trying to make it like you would regular tea bags (one bag per cup) because this tea is formulated to be heavily diluted with water.
Now there are some TLC Reps who DELIBERATELY make it stronger so that it will work “better” or “faster” and in that case, it’s going to taste bitter and strong and while you can add the aforementioned things to it, it may or may not make it taste better.
A Few Things To Remember
Now having said all of that, I want you to keep a few things in mind…
- First, Iaso is a DETOX tea. It is a detoxifier… it’s purpose is to draw toxins out of your system and carry them out through your bowels. Therefore, you’ll want to be careful of what you add to it because, it’s going to draw out any impurities and put them right into YOUR body. That’s one of the reasons I don’t suggest storing it in plastic, especially those gallon jugs that water comes in. A large glass jar or pitcher is best.
- Second, you’ll want to either use organic fruit or at the very least, if using conventional fruit, do a vinegar soak to get as much of the wax and pesticides off as you can before adding to your tea. Either that or take the skin off – can’t do that with berries, though, so be sure to soak and rinse those.
- Third, be as minimal as possible with adding stuff because what you DON’T want to do is to weaken its strength and ability to do its job of cleaning you out effectively.
So that’s it… ways to make Iaso Tea taste better!
