This refreshing delight has a base on black tea from Rainforest Alliance certified farms and is complemented by the naturally sweet herbs. The smooth, sweet flavor enhances the full-bodied, brisk character of black tea. Delicious hot or iced.
Black Tea has less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.
Steeping black tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 3-5 minutes if using a tea bag or full-leaf.

Ice Ice Baby
March 15, 2015
I love to drink hot tea at home or at work year round! However, when I'm at a restaurant I always order iced tea. I recently ran out of my "other brand" of black tea and wanted to try something different. So as a first time customer I purchased the Sweet Tea Classic and didn't like the licorice undertone. In general, I don't like black licorice. I would actually rate this 1 teapot if served warm. I wish I had read the ingredients before purchasing this. Luckily, Andrea from Lake Stevens, WA said, "I prefer it cold over ice." I have to say, I also prefer it cold over ice. In fact, it's pretty good cold! Served cold I would give this 5 teapots. Now I just have to get use to drinking iced tea at home!
GREAT Sweet Tea

This tea is fabulous. I prefer it cold over ice. It has just enough sweet to be yummy but not too much. I could drink this all day. I am already almost done with the can I ordered ...Time to reorder. If you are looking for a nice black sweet tea you won't be disappointed.

Delicious pick-me-up for the afternoon slumps. No bitter undertones. Excellent break from any task.
Great Tea for Combinations

Delighted to find this tea. I use a large cup so in general I find using one bag is too little and two bags are too much. However, one bag of the Black Sweet tea combined with one bag of the Lucky Irish tastes great.
Different - yes, but nice

The black tea taste is there but of course it is less strong. You cannot expect different from a mix with herbs. The little sweet hint reminds me of ginger green tea. If you like to try new things, this is definitely for you.

Quite interesting. Fresh, light taste for a black tea with a hint of sweetness. Not a sugar type sweet. More like a hint of honey. Enjoy it - my wife and I do.
THE VERY BEST...

This is the very best for making iced tea that I have ever had. I just ordered more, I am drinking a lot of it in the heat here in Oregon.
Not my cup of tea

It wasn't that this tea was horrible, for some folks it might be quite nice. But I found the flavor weak, a bit unusual and it just doesn't taste especially sweet to me, even though I often drink tea black and thought I'd notice a big difference. Just very meh.

pretty good - took a little getting used to - but definitely nice for those who like sweet tea but can't deal with calories.

It's different from what I expected. It tastes so weird.
