If you’re a tea person, you will love the idea of powering your warming drinks with a beneficial marine superfood. It won’t spoil the taste of your cozy beverage but enrich it with antioxidants, amino and fatty acids, trace minerals, and a load of essential vitamins. Learn the benefits of sea moss gel in tea and find out how to make your sea moss tea even more delicious with True Sea Moss!

What are sea moss supplements and who needs them?

Irish sea moss is a natural way to well-being, sustainability, energy, and health. The secret of this Red algae species lies in its nutritional content.

While it hasn’t yet been counted how many nutrients Irish moss contains, it is certain that essential and nonessential amino and fatty acids, antioxidants (A, C, and E), trace minerals, and prebiotics can be found in the alga. It is rich in iodine, iron, phosphorus, zinc, calcium, magnesium, and nearly all B-group vitamins. Such a powerhouse of crucial nutrients is a beneficial addition to your diet.

What does sea moss give your body?


If you enjoy your tea several times a day, putting sea moss gel to your tea (but not more than two tablespoons of True Sea Moss gel a day!) will literally transform your health. To be more precise, in a few weeks of consistent Red algae routine you may start seeing the following benefits:

  • Consolidated immunity
  • Improved sleep and stress-resistance
  • Lifted and smoothed out skin
  • Reinforced bones and teeth
  • Significantly improved metabolism and energy levels
  • Stronger heart and arteries

What’s more, the alga was linked to relieving inflammation in joints and muscles, making it beneficial for conditions like arthrosis, osteoporosis, back pain, and muscle cramps.

What sea moss supplement form is the best for your tea?

For your tea, you want to use dissolvable sea moss versions. At True Sea Moss you will find two ideal options for your lukewarm beverages: powder and gel.

🌿Sea moss gel — adding fruit-flavored True Sea Moss gel to your tea will boost it with a juicy flavor and smooth, viscous texture. Benefit from the fruit antioxidants in our flavored gels!

True Sea Moss tip: the gel tastes better standalone! It has a smooth baby food texture and a rich flavor of berries or fruits.

🌿Sea moss powder — no less beneficial than any other sea moss supplement, the powder is easily dissolvable and isn’t picky toward storage conditions.

You can mix the powder into any beverage and take it with you to the office! Notice that adding non-flavored Irish sea moss to your tea might not be easy on your taste buds — at least, not in every tea recipe! The original flavor of the seaweed is savory, sour, and salty. However, it may suit better to other recipes, which you can find on our blog!

What to add for flavor?

If you want to try something new in your tea experience, try adding the following ingredients that go well in every season of the year.

These are flavor-rich and high in vitamins and natural ingredients that will boost your mood and blend smoothly with your chosen sea moss powder or gel flavor.

True Sea Moss tip: choose our gels with fruit and berry flavors. To create these positions, we collaborated with California's finest suppliers, you will appreciate the bursting pallet of tastes

  • Ginger. The most antioxidant-dense ingredient that will complement your tea with spicy, peppery, and warming features.
  • Cinnamon and nutmeg. Will create a cozy winter-ish and fall-ish aroma. This is an uplifting ingredient that boosts brain activity!
  • Lemon or lime. Goes best with sweet black tea or green tea. High in vitamins C and B.
  • Honey. To replace sugar, add honey. It gives your tea a smoother texture. Honey will go well with mango-flavored moss gel!
  • Berries. Fresh and frozen berries will give an herbal tea a raise. Add Elderberry sea moss gel to the mixture and enjoy the revitalizing drink that consolidates immunity.
  • Milk and spices. Add milk, red pepper, and True Sea Moss gel with the original taste to your strong black tea. Create a unique version of Masala chai that nourishes and warms up!
