We're Good Earth and we make tea. But we don't just stick to the ordinary stuff. We seek out the exotic. The unexpected. The moments where you can really let loose. Because that's what tea should do. And so that's how we make it. We've been at this for 40+ years, planting our roots in the 1970s with our Sweet & Spicy which went from a local favorite to a country-wide “tell my friends but don't take mine” tea. Good Earth now has teas that span all sorts of tea varietals, herbs, botanicals and flavors … naturally good things carefully chosen and masterfully blended together for a one-of-a-kind taste experience.

So, there is a bit of confusion here about the ingredients in this product. Upon speaking with The Good Earth directly, I have learned that the 18-count Original Sweet & Spicy Tea (both caffeine-free and regular) have artificial flavor, whereas the 25-count boxes do not. It seems like a stupid way to differentiate, since the boxes look exactly the same, with the same exact name. I think they do this so as not to highlight the fact that any of their products have artificial flavoring. I learned from them that they originally had artificial flavor in the blend, then removed it, and received complaints because it tasted different (though probably only slightly). They then added it back to their formula, but only in the 18-count boxes. It is a "spice flavor not found in nature," they claim, so I guess there's no other way to please the people who like that flavor. The first box I got was from an outlet grocery store that was produced during the in-between period when the artificial flavor...
I purchased the 6 pack of Good Earth Caffeine Free Sweet and Spicy. I was shocked when I compared the ingredients on the boxes I received to the ingredients listed on the Amazon website. Website states "100% Natural...No artificial Flavors". On the website, "Natural Flavor" is the third ingredient. On the boxes I received "Artificial Flavor" is the third ingredient! Good Earth was recently purchased by the Tata Beverage Group. Apparently they have chosen to enhance their profit on what used to be a quality, 100% Natural product by using inferior ingredients. I'm sure as educated consumers become aware of this change, this item will rapidly drop from it's #2 selling position at Amazon. As always, Amazon's customer service was excellent. They refunded my total purchase price for the item. Guess I'll donate the product to a local food bank.
The taste of this new formulation is a shadow of the original. It lacks the zip, the taste and the zing. Truly disappointing. If you compare the ingredients of this new formula to the old, you'll fing that they've cut out TONS of the great spices, etc. they originally had. Let's start a movement to bring back the old formula!
