Yes, pretty much what Jay said.
Bottom line, as I mentioned above, if you view tea as simply a beverage, then adding whatever to it becomes less and less of an issue. However, drinking tea in its pure state sans any additives will give you a positive alternative to high calorie or additives that may be not so healthy.
And alternately, if you are (contemplating) drinking tea as an aficionado(a), then pure is the only way to go. Since you have tried the additive route (as virtually all of us have), I say be open minded and give pure an earnest shot. You may surprise yourself with what you discover.
Often, flavors, additives are like training wheels for tea until we learn how to ride and discover the pleasure and excitement that true, unadulterated tea can bring.
... from my perspective and having been there and done that ... this equates with subbing something bad or less good with something much better for you mind, body, soul.
