My first experience with this tea was the day I went over a good friend’s house. She felt like tea, so we decided that THIS tea (out of the many others she owned) would be what we would have. We steeped it for a good 5 minutes. The first sip wasn’t stunning, it was plain and missing something, so I had to add some sugar, and poured in some milk (vanilla soymilk, to be exact). It was delicious with the milk and sugar. This being said, I had to go home pronto and buy myself a box of this stuff. A few boxes later and I enjoy it occasionally, but have leaned more towards herbal teas. Overall, a pretty good tea.
