Sorry to say it was sickeningly sweet with undertones of chemical artificial sweetner.

Yeah, that's how every tea that has dried fruit in it tastes. I think I might rather eat it dry.

It tastes like there are added sweeteners. I'd be happy to send it to you as trail food. :D

Gross. I'd rather make my own trail mix, thanks ;)

(do they really sell that stuff in China? I thought dried fruit mixed with spices, herbs, and tea was an American thing)

Dried fruit added to teas are usually more for show as they do not add enough flavor on their own to the liking of Westerners ... they usually still add "flavors." :cry:
