Not So Sweet as Expected January 25, 2015


Bordentown, NJ

I was a bit disappointed with this tea. It has a weird taste and is not as sweet as I anticipated. I might mix it up with other teas for ice tea just to use it up. Sorry guys.

I love traditional southern sweet tea but can't handle the high fructose content and the calories! This tea tastes just as good without the additives and calories.If you have a Keurig K-cup machine, use a glass or cup; insert the tea bag(s) and hit the hot water button!

This tea is just so good. It has a nice little sweetness to it without being overpowered by it. It is delicious hot or cold.

A Northerners Answer to Southern Sweet Tea April 02, 2014


Morristown, NJ

I developed somewhat of a taste for sweet tea while working in North Carolina (where that is really all the tea you can get!!). However, the NC version was too sweet, often bitter, and kept me up all night. And then there were the calories. I thought I would try this and was super pleased - no bitterness, just the right sweetness, normal caffeine content. I became addicted immediately and without an iota of guilt! It is great cold - I keep a pitcher in the refrigerator all summer, and I drink it hot year round. I highly recommend it and all of its companions - the Ginger Peach is equally good.

I'm trying to switch over from coffee to tea, and so I purchased this tea. I usually drink strong black coffee with a bit of cream. This is good! I think I may be able to make the switch with this and a few other flavors. And for those of you who don't like this, send them to me! :)

Good both HOT and COLD. January 24, 2013


Sheldon, IA

Purchased this tea thinking I would drink most of it cooled down and over ice in the summer. I have found that this tea is great sipped hot when I am craving something sweet, but really don't want to spend my calories on a solid "sweet".

Better than Classic Black January 05, 2013


St. Louis, MO

I like this one better than the Classic Black Sweet Tea. This tea can be both weak and bitter. I use it for iced tea. I let the water cool several minutes after boiling before pouring over tea, then let it steep quite a while. Less heat, longer time; comes out stronger without being bitter.

This is a very good sweet tea; although it is not too sweet. Anyone who wants a really sweet tea may not think this is sweet enough. I'm from the south where our tea is really sweet, but I love this tea!

I like really, really sweet tea and am learning to drink my tea without sweetener. This is really good without sugar and I would buy it again.

Definitely different. It's is noticeably sweet without any sugar and it has a flowery taste to it, or what you imagine sweet smelling flowers to taste like. I don't drink it too much since after drinking it I decided I liked my more traditional black and green teas or fruity ones like the apple tea, but it is what I was hoping for: delicate, floral, and sweet all in one.

Tastes like artificial sweetner October 28, 2012


St. Augustine, FL

Disappointed to find this tea tastes like it's sweetened with Sweet n Low........even though it's natural it still tastes strange. Guess there's no substitute for sugar (and really, at only 45 calories per tsp., might as well stick with it)

Excellent Summer Beverage July 26, 2012


San Rafael, CA

A light sweetness surrounds the tea giving you a much needed lift on hot summer days. I found this tea to be a good alternative to sodas and provided that sweet edge without going overboard. You do need to use at least 3 teabags for a gallon of tea - maybe 4. I've also found it mixes well when the Pom Green Iced Tea is on its second gallon and you need a bit of a lift to that tea.

I brewed the tea, but it seemed a bit weak and not at all sweet like I was expecting it to be. I was just a bit disappointed with the strength of the brew.

If you want the best iced tea ever, you have to have this one. I don't like sweetened tea, but this has a very bright flowery natural sweetness that isn't cloying. It's perfect for a hot summer day. I recommend it highly.

Brewed for 3minutes subtle flavors very nice. Looking forward to brewing a pitcher for iced tea. As with all tea, timing the brewing is vital to the taste not getting bitter.

Nasty, unpleasant, waste of money February 13, 2012


Cleveland, OH

I usually drink black tea with no sugar but once in a while I like sweet tea. This tea is awful. The black tea flavor is unpleasant and I usually like black tea. It is sweet but leaves a nasty, bitter taste at the back of my tongue after every sip. I'm sorry I bought it.

Delicious sweetness January 15, 2012


Everett, WA

I love this tea! I am someone who typically adds quite a bit of sugar to my tea, but I don't have to add any to this wonderful sweet tea. It's a different sweetness than sugar or honey provide, but it is tasty in its own way. I would recommend it to those who like their tea sweet.

Fabulous tea. Really is sweet and needs no additional sweetner. Tastes wonderful mixed with another tea in a large mug. I just use one tea bag of this and any other tea and it is a taste treat.

Surprisingly Good! December 08, 2011


Wasn't sure if the tea would live up to it's description but bought it anyway. Was very intersted in trying it and was not disappointed! I thoroughly enjoy this tea and love the sweetness. I was afraid the longer it steeped the more bitter it would become but I haven't found that to be true at all! So so so good!

Every so often I enjoy a small amount of sweetner added to my tea. Usually raw sugar or agave. I thought this tea would be perfect. I discovered it was too sweet for my tastes. It also has an after taste I am not fond of. What I am doing is brew one bag of it with 1 bag of the Three Gardens breakfast. That reduces the sweetness and the after taste.

Too Strong of Lemon for Me August 04, 2011


, ID

I didn't read the Additional information so I didn't know that it had a Lemon flavor to it...and I don't like lemon in my tea. For me, it is very over powering and I don't really even pick up the sweetness because of it. This should have been called Sweet Tea with Lemon. To help dilute the lemon flavor a little bit I mix 2bags with 2-3 bags of another such as Wild Berry Plum Green Tea. That was a really good Ice Tea.
