Companies Use of Pesticides and Toxins:

When asked about the use of “natural flavors” and use of pesticides this is the response I received from Harney and Sons: 

“We use two natural cinnamons in the hot cinnamon spice. All of our teas meet the strict EU regulations for little to no pesticides, and certainly no toxins!”

Review:
A friend from our facebook group (Morning Cup of Tea) and a personal friend as well shared her love of this tea. I added it to my Amazon list and was surprised that my grandson purchased it for me for the holidays. I dove right in.

I love the taste of this wine, some may want to add a sweetener however I think without it really gives a more wine taste.

What I don’t like…

PICTURE

dust and natural flavors!

The dust because we all know that it’s basically tea ground and ground and ground to dust and I honestly never understand why, why? Because whole tea leaf makes an incredible tea.

Natural flavors again as I have stated, natural flavors are not regulated and can be absolutely anything. I contacted metropolitan tea for an explanation of the natural flavors and here is there response:

Afertaste: none
Biterness: none

Notes:
cinnamon and SWEET!!!
