Just bought the bagged version of this (on accident), but steeped it in my Zarafina. The first few sips taste like a stick of Big Red gum dissolved in hot water…yuck. It is, however, quite sweet without sweetener (woo!). The tea flavor comes out a little more as it cools, but it’s still very, very faint. I put the teabag back into cup, and it became a bit stronger…but it still tastes like very sweet gum. It’s almost too sweet (never thought I’d say that…I’m a “I like my sugar with coffee and cream” kind of gal). I’m not digging this. Next time maybe I’ll throw in some black tea with it.
