What ingredient in this tea makes it taste sweet? Cinnamon? Cloves? Nutmeg? Answered

Bengal Spice tea made by Celestial Seasonings tastes sweet when brewed without a sweetener.  It's so sweet you could convince a taster that a fair amount of sweetener was already added to their cup.  The listed ingredients are:  cinnamon, roasted chicory, roasted carob, natural spice and vanilla flavors with other natural flavors, ginger, cardamom, black pepper, cloves and nutmeg.  The box lists 0 calories and 0 grams of carbohydrate indicating no sugar.  Further, since the second infusion also tastes sweet, I doubt they "neglected" to list an ingredient such as sugar or stevia, which would tend to fully dissolve in the first infusion.  What ingredient is making the tea taste sweet?  Why isn't that ingredient used to sweeten other drinks?

Any Idea Why People Use Corn Syrup in Candy?

Hi, I was wondering if anyone could answer this question: Why do all candy recipes have corn syrup? I have tried making hard candies from just sugar and water, and the candies are good and hard the day I make them, but then the second day, they end up all crumbly when you bite in to them. Does that have to do with not adding corn syrup? Thanks for reading this question! ~Seawee

Portable Guitar Amp Hiss

Hi all, I have built this design with a few modifications to accommodate for the parts that I already have. I used a stereo 1/4 inch stereo jack, but I connected the 2nd signal to the battery negative and the ground to the circuit ground. This way the circuit switches on when I plug in a guitar. I also used headphones only instead of a speaker, so I don't need a switch. Now the circuit works and it is amplifying the sound, except there is a very load hiss. I am assuming that a certain frequency in not being filtered out but this may not matter when using a medium quality speaker because of its low frequency range. However high quality earphones can play this sound. Is this correct? Does the headphone work for anyone with the hiss? Thanks in advance

What is an ingredient I can add to something that cancels out a very sugary flavor? Answered

I'm making a mixture thats basically sugar and corn syrup, what can I add to the mixture to stop it from being so sweet that it tastes bad? I'm looking for something like a flavor or juice of some kind, and was wondering if lemon juice or something common like that would cancel it out well. As in it works with small amounts compared to large amounts of sugar. And it also has to not affect gelatin. Thanks.

A sweet Idea for a movie!

Ok, This Idea is either really cool or the dumbest one Ive had yet! What if They made a movie about aliens coming to destroy earth by infecting us with an alien virus that makes us turn into zombies, so the Worlds military makes Super advanced robots to fight them! and because all of the military personnel are fighting aliens The world erupts in mass anarchy and pirates start to sail the sea and attack coastal cities! So chivalrous ninja protect the people from the prates and aliens. But then the Anti-virus the Drug companies makes to stop the virus in the infected mutates and causes certain people to turn into vampires! I think it would be cool but it might also be a bit much! :)
