12 Additives To Make Your Tea Taste Amazing
Cinnamon, especially Ceylon Cinnamon has an incredible amount of health benefits.

You can get Ceylon Cinnamon at our Shop online or most likely from a local smaller market.
A dash of lemon is fantastic even in just plain water, so by adding to it some already delicious you cannot go wrong.
Honey is a good alternative to adding just regular sugar to your coffee. Adding too much can make your tea taste very sweet. You can pair this nicely with Lemon or Cinnamon.
The white part of the coconut contains the oil, which is considered good for your skin. It is quite high in fat however, so don't use a lot and as an alternative try roasting the coconut before adding it! We also sell it in our Shop.

Basil is known for helping calm down the mind and settling mental fatigue. Again it is quite powerful so just "test the waters".
