No offense taken, Scruff!:D
For me flavored teas are a fun occasional indulgence but they have to be a decent tea base to start with and then the flavor should be true to its name.
Aside from the fun factor, they are approachable for tea newbies and a great stepping stone for people trying to get away from coffee and soda as their regular beverages. Helping us draw in new recruits! Muhahahaha!
