This is the first non fruity tea that I have tried! It is already sweet enough that I don’t have to add any sweeteners to it! It is weird seeing the minor oily-ness in the water but I guess that’s because of the sprinkles? If you don’t want your tea maker to stain then I suggest just using a filter. It is definitely one of the best tea’s I’ve had and I’m glad I went a nonfruity route when I went to DT yesterday! Make sure that when you brew this tea you put a little more than 1.5 tsps since any less would make the tea weaker!
