Here's a recommendation for taking off the slight bitterness that will sometimes follow a cup of hot tea. Agave Nectar. I've found it locally in the healthy food section of our Hy-Vee grocery store. All natural and not overly sweet. I usually drink my hot tea straight, but always use Agave Nectar in my iced tea.

I use both the Light and Amber (both organic), not the ones with flavoring.
