Organic Black Tea .Harney and Sons

found at Whole Foods Market . $2.4 … !

flavor: black tea, some faint sweetness, not much astringency (i suppose from the sugars that cover it), and some mild honey flavor (i thought the black tea tasted like honey, but it was on the strong side- so i looked on the label, and yup, there it was….it pissed me off, along with all the sugar and other shit it has). It finishes with some citric/lemon in the back/backsides of the mouth. But no more other weird tastes…

lets count the words on the front label:
master tea blenders
fine teas
harney & sons
master tea blenders
organic black
crisp pure
energizing black tea
made from fresh brewed tea
16floz 473ml

ok, now… crisp & pure fresh brewed, i then imagine the contents are ‘pure black tea’ and ‘citric acid’…right… lets see:
triple filtered water
contains less than 2% of organic cane sugar
organic honey

brewed from select organic black tea
ascorbic acid
citric acid
sodium citrate

alright. so. wtf… can i just get some of that “PURE” BLACK TEA ???… gd bullshit.

overall: not bad, not bad, not sugary, but deceptive front label. It will go on the bottled tea list.
