Dear ALL, As many of you know, every morning I carefully brew a very large pot (ca. 360 ml) of Chinese white tea. For many years, I've been sweetening my tea with Neotame, which is an extremely sweet artificial sweetener (about 18 times as sweet as sucralose). All evidence points to Neotame as being a completely safe product -- not affecting the one's diet in any meaningful way. However, my tastes have been slowly evolving -- I've found myself using less and less Neotame in my tea -- and usually finding the sweet taste to be too intense. A few days ago, I finally tried drinking my tea without any Neotame -- or sucralose, sugar or any other sweet substance. I found it delicious -- and I've been enjoying it much better without the distortion and distraction of sweetness. However, after about a week of drinking my tea without sweetener -- I've returned to adding a VERY SMALL AMOUNT of Neotame to my tea. I now enjoy, once again, my lightly Neotame sweetened tea with my morning 2lbs of Nappa cabbage for breakfast. And I drink my tea throughout the day. -- Saul
