I would agree with Tomasini, I just think that flavored teas are totally unacceptable once you get into drinking teas. I just think that flavors overpower any taste of tea that you may get especailly in green teas whose flavor is not that strong in the first place.
That being said, if flavored tea convinces more people to drink loose leaf, then I am all for selling more. While, I personally cannot find any reason to drink flavored teas, I understand that most people are not like me, and if we want to show more people the wonders of loose leaf tea, maybe we need to start them off on flavored tea. I don't know, anyone else have any input on this?
