|"This is a safe investment for anyone seeking teas with a bitter hue or anyone consistently adding sugar to tea."|
The tea tastes as much green as black, but it carries a tinge to the back of the throat that I find off-setting. The recommendation from the producer is to add sugar and I believe that this is an honest and accurate requirement for the tea to hold up properly. It's a calm flavor otherwise, but the aforementioned tinge of bitterness steals from what would otherwise serve as a smooth tea. In fact, it might even bare the red of rooibos in its properties without that dark sting.
The sugar soothes the tea and makes it much more enjoyable, but I am summarily against the sweetening pre-requisite for a natural beverage. Furthermore, similar teas do not require the natural cane and, accordingly, it feels as though something was lost in the design.
This isn't a bad tea, but it does dictate additives to achieve its true self. Ultimately, it's probably a safe investment for anyone seeking teas with a bitter hue or anyone consistently adding sugar to tea.
