Republic of Tea: Honey Ginseng

I received a Republic of Tea catalogue recently. Included with it was a sample of honey ginseng tea. RT's website lists the tea as follows:

Daily Green Tea - A relaxing blend combines the ancient healthy properties of China green tea with Panax ginseng and full blossom honey. This delicious, subtly sweet tea offers a peaceful sipping experience.

When I opened the sample, I was hit by a heavy honey smell. I boiled some water and made myself a cup of tea. The honey ginseng tea tasted like water with too much honey. Yuck. So much for "subtly sweet tea." I won't be buying that : P
