Does contain grape flavoring and you can smell it. It doesn’t at all overwhelm the tea it’s actually a really tasty combo. I prefer it brewed straight. I tried just a hint of cream and it didn’t come across well. Made it taste more astringent. I would purchase more.
Prefer organic blends. Never been a fan of strong black tea but finding lighter black tea blends are good. Only started to drink tea in 2015 so I am trying to expand my tastes. I drink it straight, rarely adding anything at all.
