How can I bring myself to love black tea?

Just drink it for a long time will work. You can add something to make it more interesting , for example: ice, lemon, milk or whatever you like.

In my humble opinion, you either like black tea or you don't. I didn't mean that u shouldn't try it cause their are many types of ways to enjoy a black tea for example: black tea with milk, honey, warm or cold with ice and so on.

I used to not like black tea, but I add sugar, and honey to my liking. Some people even add half and half to theirs !!
There is also some herb mixes with black tea and other herb items that make it more sweet or spicy depending which you prefer more.
Also breakfast cookies and black tea are amazing together !!!

This might upset some people, but start with cream and/or sugar or a flavoring, then gradually wean yourself off. Also, lots of natural flavored teas are good for this too.

You can start by drinking it with a sweetener of your choice. I would start using honey first, gradually you could even put less and less honey or sweetener and do believe you could get use to drinking it without any sweetener.

Perhaps try honey instead of sugar when sweetening it. Try various kinds too, like normal black tea and my personal favorite, Earl Grey. Make it fun discovering which teas you like and the various ways to sweeten it. Try it hot or over ice, mixed with cream or no cream, etc.

There are different kinds of black tea! Try a fun black tea experiment where you try 3-5 teas (black) and try them all with sugar and honey- Hopefully you’ll find the one you love!!

Enjoy and appreciate the healing qualities of black tea, and visualize the warmth traveling through your body comforting and healing every wound.

You could try it with some lemon drops in it, or a slice. Otherwise, if you’re looking for a sweeter taste, try to put some sugar in it (perhaps a couple of teaspoons) or some honey. Good luck!

Make it sweet if you like sweet tea, also try different alternatives to sugar such as honey or different syrups that add flavour to the tea.

I have never had black tea before but by the name I can assume that it is very strong and bitter which is not how I like my tea I like mine with lots of milk and sugar so to make me like black tea I would add milk and sugar
Antonius F.
I think you should try it with milk and sugar. But if you don't like black tee you should not force yourself to like that. 🙂

Start with why you want to drink black tea. That way you have the motivation behind the act always in mind. Making it more attractive then can take many different forms. One way I love drinking black tea is in a mix called “chai”. It is very popular and you can get it in many cafés, but make sure to have a good quality blend that has a decent % of black tea, as some blends do not.

When I was little I used to drink it with milk and sugar because it was way softer than to drink it plain. Then I tried it with lemon and sugar, and now I usually drink it just with lemon or plain. It’s a matter of getting the taste slowly because it’s a bit strong.

Perhaps you could try adding a sweetener to it, such as honey. And don’t try to drink it to much to get yourself used to the taste

The astringency of black tea makes it difficult to drink for those unused to the beverage. There are a few ways to improve palatability:
1. The easiest is to make weaker tea. Steep for a shorter period than recommended for your leaves or use more water or less tea.
2. Adding sugar or honey is an option, but too much will make the beverage nauseating.
3. Add some lemon to the tea. This will improve the taste and color, making it ideal for sipping.
4. Add milk if you are tolerant. There are no limits. You can use pure milk to brew the tea or add a splash to taste.

Always remind yourself about it's benefits.
Add a little amount of sugar or honey with a slice of lemon, this will give it a great taste.
Another way to do it is to boil it with cinnamon. You can't resist the sweet smell.

Start with like green tea and lemon and see how you like that and then afterwards, I will try black tea with lemon and then after that, I’ll try black tea by itself and see how you like it

Honestly I think it's an aquired taste… Personally I love black tea but not everyone likes bitter flavors. Maybe try different kinds of black tea and see what works for you, or try adding healthy sweeteners to it👍

firstly, you don't have to love black tea, if it' just doesn't taste good to you, then it doesn't taste good to you and that's okay! Secondly, try drinking black tea with lots of sugar and cream of you prefer it to be sweet, or try a mix of black and your favorite tea! I personally love earl grey and I'll drink it with lavender honey and oat milk. Try drinking a little bit a morning and see what you like and don't like! and remember not to steep the tea too long!

First, make sure that you put the black tea in boiling water. Then only leave the tea for 4 minutes (This helps eliminate some of the bitterness associated with black tea).
You can add some sweetener (like honey, brown sugar, chocolate) and some sort of creamer and milk if desired.
You could get some fancy drink, like Chai or boba tea to start with, or add it to your baking to get uses to it.
There are different flavors of black tea to try out as well.
Though, you don't have to force yourself to like black tea.

Apart from water, tea is one of the most consumed beverages around the world, which is obtained from the Camellia sinensis plant. This tea has a very good appetite and contains more caffeine than other teas, but it has less caffeine than coffee. Black tea contains antioxidants, it is also effective in reducing inflammation in the body.and it’s useful for promote heart health

It’s best if you accept not liking black tea in my opinion, there are a multitude of teas to choose from, I like black tea the least as well, the other teas usually have a more calming effect on me like green tea, chamomile or other white teas. Ask yourself why you think you have to like black tea. But if you insist on having to like it you can try just exposing yourself to black tea, try different sorts, different flavours, experiment with honey and milk, try adding cinnamon or ginger, whatever you like, and then if it still does not work, you will have to accept that it is not for you, which is completely fine. I hope this was helpful.

Try different black teas – Darjeeling, English breakfast, Irish breakfast, and Earl Grey all have different notes. You can also try out different flavor additions. Sugar and milk is standard, but honey, lemon, and others can help tweak it to your preference.
