Got this for my little guy (20 months) who always begs for “Sip, daddy, sip!” when I am drinking my brew of the day. Since mine are always caffeinated I thought I’d get him something appropriate. I have brewed this twice (different steep times), added honey to sweeten it, tried it warm and cool, and he refuses it either way. When I tried it (both times) I think I know why… It tastes like what I can only describe as “wet paper.” I know this taste because I shot spitwads as a kid in school, and used the institutional roll paper towels from the restrooms. This tea tastes just like that!

Maybe it was just a bad batch of bag material, I don’t know. I am returning it for a refund, and will try to find something else for my little tea-maven!
