I've used this tea since the 70's. It is my daily, all-season's drink. The blend is superb! There is no need for any additions, Sweet & Spicy is soothing hot and refreshing cold--still just as delicious after sitting for hours as when freshly brewed! I can't find a better tea blend on the market. While I've tasted some changes to the recipe throughout the years, the all over quality is excellent. What more can I say, I love it!
