Got this in the $3 sampler pack…

When I was a kid, I used to use a magnifying lens to burn leaves that had fallen from trees. I remember it always brought out a very nice, roasted smell from the leaf.
This tea has that exact same smell that I remember from childhood!

Once brewed, it has a nice roasted aroma and taste, but yet is still comes across as being refreshing. However it ends with a surprising sweetness that makes you want to gulp it down. Plus it’s nice to be able to drink it in the evening with the low caffeine.

I have yet to try it iced but it’s on my to do list!
