  • I dont see why it would. Green tea is not meant to be a sweet drink however : / perhaps you just need to get used to it.
  • I have done a few internet searches, and have come up with very little in reference to this issue. It appears you may have thought up an interaction that has yet to be investigated. Milk addition is known not to reduce the antioxidant affect of green teas. In relation to sweeteners you would have to be more specific about the actual sweetener you are referring to. Sugar and honey pose no issue when added, if you are referring to artificial sweeteners, sucralose and aspartame are the most commonly used sweeteners, and their interactions with food components appears not to have been investigated. Aspartame is investigated for many other issues, but as far as I can see, the emergence of antioxidants as food ingredients is so new that interactions with other food ingredients is yet to be reviewed. I have an insight into beverage production from the work I do, and beverage/food companies generally do not do a lot of testing for themselves, they rely on ingredient companies to do testing for them, and until someone brings up the issue no one will outlay costs to research a link unless it will bring them profit in some way.
  • add ginger, ginseng, rosmary, or jasmine, to be honest there are much tastier sweeteners that you can add to tea to produce a nice sweet taste.
