verall, it was great! I would drink it again, but wouldn’t buy. I have recommended this to teabag drinkers, as an enticing transition to whole leaves. While I enjoyed this tea, it was a tad sweeter than I would like. So, if you don’t like sugar in your tea, I wouldn’t recommend it. That is, unless you like your tea very sweet, still.
