You don’t see these in vending machines very often, so I tend to get them when I see them, even though they go against my personal rule of not sweetening my teas. Despite the fact that it is totally too sweet I still drink it because the apple flavor has been blended really well with the black tea. It tastes super appley and delicious, while the black tea is still present and if it wasn’t sweetened it would probably be my favorite tea ever. But alas! It is and I’m afraid that means at LEAST 10 points docked because A. it impinges on it’s effectiveness as a quencher of thirst and B. too sweet! bleh.
