I have a long list of to-try teas, but these ten take the top! The Bees Teas, S’mores If you click on the tea, you will notice the ingredient list: “Black Tea, Green Tea, Cocoa Beans, Barley, Chocolate Flakes, Apple, Vanilla, Yogurt Bits, Sea Salt, Cocoa Powder, Dried Marshmallows, Graham Cracker Cookie Bits, Citric Acid” I love teas with a ton of ingredients.
