I’m drinking a 12 oz. mug of this with milk and one packet of sweetener, and I tried a spoon of it before I added the milk. I used two rounded teaspoons of tea. This tea is creamy-smooth, as the description says, and it seems to be fairly malty, I think. It’s a bit like drinking a Malteser without the chocolate. If that’s what maltiness is, then it does have some of that flavor. It’s also very sweet, which I like. I’ll try it with just milk sometime, and I might steep it a minute longer another time. Overall, it’s tasty and I’m glad to have it.
So, I finally tried it without sweetener. It was still kind of sweet, and just a little bitter, but that’s all that really seemed to be different. It’s sometimes too sweet with sweetener, so I’ve mostly been drinking it when I’m eating something sweet, like toast and jam. With milk and no sweetener, it was nicer to drink on its own.
