the tea is actually pretty good i think. soothing. sort of a peppermint/chamomile flavor for those of you who are still trying to decide whether you want to do it. the fiber drink really only bothered me the first two times. i just dont drink the last sip because the licorice taste is nasty strong and i gag when i drink it.
I drink the fiber with Cranberry/Pomagranite juice. I use a half glass of juice the put the fiber in stir then down it like a shot. Then I pour more juice in the glass and swish it around to get all the fiber off of the sides and drink that too. It really doesn't bother me at all. It's over in like five seconds.
