Went From 'Eh' To One of My Favs!

Kapolei, HI

When I had my first sip of my first cup of this tea, I was quite disappointed. It wasn't as sweet as I was expecting (In fact, I didn't really think that it was sweet at all) and I didn't really care for the flavor. But I am now about a quarter of the way through my tin, and it has quickly become one of my favorites. This tea does not taste sweet in the front of your mouth, at the beginning of the sip. The sweetness comes a second later, towards the back of your mouth and after you swallow. I think that if you're expecting that, you will be less disappointed in the sweetness with that first sip. The flavor is very different. And with time and exposure, has really grown on me. It tastes floral and exotic and is really, very lovely. For me, the timing of the sweetness (a second after you sip) combined with the exotic flavor makes this a really complex tea that very stimulating to drink.

Not So Sweet as Expected

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.

Awesome!

Brooksville, FL

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

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.

Send me yours!

Grants Pass, OR

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.

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

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.

Sweet tea

Millington, TN

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!

good sweet tea

Linn Valley, KS

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.

Great tea. This is the second time I have purchased. When you are feeling like sweet tea without the calories.

Tastes like artificial sweetner

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)

Delicious

Bedford, NH

I was never much of a tea drinker until I discovered Republic of Tea. This sweet tea is actually my favorite of all the ones I have tried. Sweetness without the guilt and satisfying.

Yes, I do detect a little bit of sweet, but I don't like the taste of the tea overall.

This is my favorite tea. It's a hearty black tea, with a sweetness to it. It's not overly sweet. Very natural taste.

I enjoy this tea. It is one of my favorites with the right amount of sweetness served hot or iced. My only complaint is it cost a little more than other teas.

Excellent Summer Beverage

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.

Terrible

One of the most disappointing products I have ever purchased from the Republic. Not worth a dime, let alone the inflated price charged for this most inferior item.

A little weak

Lyndhurst, OH

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.

A Must-have

Washington Grove, MD

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.

Well worth the money!

This tea is wonderful to drink chilled and over ice. I was excited to serve it at the annual Mother / Daughter Tea at church. Everyone enjoyed the balanced taste.

Nice addition to my tea choices

San Juan Capistrano , CA

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

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

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.

Love this tea.

Lewiston, ID

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!

,

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!

good but too sweet for my taste

This is a good naturally sweet tea if you prefer sweet drinks. I'm not big on sweet drinks and found this tea disappointly not to my liking.

Sugar Free

Huntington Beach, CA

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

, 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.

This is an excellent tea and it makes the best iced tea ever! I know others will enjoy this one because once I get my friends to try it, they love it just like I do.
