The ETS was selling 25 count pouches of this tea bagged for pretty cheap so I decided to give it a try. It’s has a sickly sweet smell so I thought I would try drinking it straight thinking it would not need sugar- it is not as sweet as it smells and was a little bitter. But once I added a bit of sugar it was quite sweet and tasted just like maple syrup. I don’t think I would buy this tea again but it’s not bad. I bet kids would love it.
