This smells like root beer syrup in the bag. That is the only way I can describe the concentrated root beer smell which carries over to the steeped tea. The first sip was horrible. There was some root beer taste in there with an overpowering bitterness that hit the sides of my tongue. I hate bitter. I added a little sugar to it and it tasted slightly better, but still quite bitter. The next delivery of a metric ass ton of sugar seems to have tamed the bitter beast, but I’m left puzzled. Why make a drink that tastes like warm flat root beer, but isn’t root beer? Would I think to pour tea into my root beer? Nope. So why this mix of flavors? It tastes like quality old fashioned root beer at least, not that cheapy mass produced stuff, but it is probably not any better for me after balancing the balancing all the bitter with sugar. Sadly, I didn’t catch any of the creamy float part of the name. Amusement of making an apple taste like an orange aside, I really don’t get this tea and would rather just have a glass of real root beer instead.
It’s too bad there isn’t a puzzled or bewildered face to use for this rating, because that would have been perfect for me!
