REST API for Product Tag not working? (Update a product's tags)

Shopify Partner
66 7 15

I am using Parabola to create an API call.

What I would like to do is delete a particular product tag from a list of products. I tried deleting the tag, which did not work, so I tried updating the tags as per the details here:

This failed with a 406 error. Can anyone see where I went wrong? Also, has anyone found a way to either reset the tags for a product or delete a given product tag?

I should point out that this product already has these tags, this action is simply reducing the tags by one tag. Not sure if the existing tags are causing the issue, but I wouldn't think it was.

      "id": 4814346682403,
      "tags": "Priceless, Samples"
  "method": "PUT",
  "url": ""
