Taheebo tea by itself has a slightly sweet taste. You can add anything you wish to the tea, and, because the tea has such a mild flavor, you'll immediately change the taste. However, if you're fighting a life-threatening disease such as diabetes or cancer, you wouldn't want to add something like sugar which would feed the disease.
