I’ve ordered this before, and I know I wasn’t crazy about it, but I can’t remember why…

As I drink the tea, it’s light. Has a very nutty note to it.
Whoa. WHOA. That is a funky aftertaste going on. It makes me think of…barley or something. It’s kinda nasty, actually. The taste makes me wish I had some honey to sweeten the brew, maybe it would help. But all I have is sugar grains, and I don’t think they’d dissolve in cold tea. Guess I could try it, though.

I know! I was so excited to get a free sample bottle of an unsweetened RTD white tea last year… but it’s NASTY… I think it’s the added vitamin C. I wish tea companies would realize that there is nothing wrong w/ the only 2 ingredients in RTD tea being tea leaves and filtered water.

Is the Vit C added as a preservative? I’m really surprised it’s in all the drinks, and that’s the only reason I can think to add it.

Cofftea

I have no clue what the purpose is cuz it says “Anteadote contains no additives or preservatives”… I dunno about you, but any ingredients that aren’t tea leaves and water would be classified as an additive to me.

Suzi

I know right? Talk about a mixed message.

Tried adding sugar. Ugh. Wrong idea. It enhances that weird taste instead of masking it.

Cofftea

Haha yeah… well, I don’t like sugar in any of my tea-especially iced, anyway.
