your favourite sweetener

Hi all, and hope your March is going well! I admit, despite kicking the dairy out of my diet, i am not brave enough to go cold tofu-rkey on the sugar.
i only use sugar in the raw since i know that is definitely not processed with bone char. most people swear by honey as being healthy...and i know this is a bit of 'grey' area for vegans? but i personally find that the stickiness alone keeps me away! and even for me, well - honey is far TOO sweet. or is that just me? some people say it is better than even the raw sugar.
what might be the best option? agave nectar, maple syrup...am i leaving anything else out? i'm thinking something that comes in a small enough pack, that i can take with me everywhere.
I'm thinking the use of sweetener is okay if used in moderation...say a teaspoon in some hot tea or along with almond milk for added flavor, and if i'm already cut down on the processed foods, cookies / candies, then some sugar in this form isn't so bad.
