A friend of mine was very sweet to serve me this at our last dinner together, and it was quite unlike any other tea I’ve ever tasted. It has a great flavor to it. Definitely sweet and flavorful enough to drink on its on. We enjoyed it iced, but it would definitely be decent hot. Although I think I would prefer it always iced. I’m so glad she sent me home with two bags, so I can enjoy it again before purchasing it for my growing tea collection.
