This is what I was told when I asked the company about their "natural flavors."
Sweet and Spicy Tea and Herb Blend is the name. It comes in a box with a sketch of a man plowing a field with a horse. The trees are billowy, the colors faded -- compelling evidence of its purity. And lest there be doubt, the brand name references goodness and the planet. Oh and it says "natural" on the package.
The tea is an unsweetened black tea with herbs, so logically (I reasoned) the "sweet" was coming from the herbs. I let it steep and cool and then sipped. It was Coca-Cola sweet!!
What was in this herb mixture?!
