My biggest objection to this tea is that they put a boatload of crap into it ("natural lemon and orange flavors" and "stevia" and a lot more.

I want green and white tea nothing else and I was fooled by the type description on the box. Not until I made the tea, drank it and my stomach objected did I think to read what the ingredients were. So I can't drink it at all.

Makes me examine every single Celestial tea product for "added ingredients" and they are not a trusted vendor to me now.

I hate it when a tea bag contains stevia without it being prominently advertised on the front. Not only do I like to control how much sweetener I put in my tea (I usually drink it unsweetened anyway), but I think stevia has a particularly noticeable flavor of its own...one that I find hard to ignore. It annoys me how many companies put stevia in teas without advertising it. Tazo had done that for their Vanilla Rooibos, and I thought it was pretty undrinkable. I think they may have changed the recipe now, perhaps in response to complaints.

Was it this exact tea you were drinking though? I checked Celestial Seasonings' websites and they just list this tea as having decaf green tea, teacaf white tea, and ascorbic acid (vitamin C). I know they put a bunch of other ingredients in some of their other blends though. It could be though that their website is out of date, and I'd be curious to know if what's written on the box is different from what's listed on the site.

First thing is: this is not decaf tea. Don't know why that is showing, my mistake maybe.
Second: the description on Celestial's site is the same ingredients listed on my box-crap stuff. "Natural" flavors can be anything according to FDA and yes there is stevia.

Can you help me switch this review to not say "decaf"? That's my mix-up.
