I love this tea. I've been drinking it for years. It's delicious and has a wonderful raspberry taste. I put a packet in a cup of hot water and let it steep for about five minutes for all the delicious flavor to come out. Personally, I like a drop or two of agave nectar which doesn't seem as sweet as honey and that's about all it needs to make an excellent, healthy drink. Raspberry has such good health benefits. I know what the nutritionists say, but I can speak for myself. That red raspberry zinger tea makes me feel good.
