I, too, was MASSIVELY disappointed w/ the flavor of the tea considering I wanted to eat the raw leaf w/ a spoon lol.

What a disappointment! 25. I love heath bars and Skor. My husband and I have debated which one is better and then (more than once) have purchased both and did taste comparisons and we thought skor to be better.

SoccerMom… I have absolutely no clue what happens between the scent of the raw leaf and the flavor of the decanted tea… it was my 1st 52teas disappointment. It is a very good sweet black tea- but it doesn’t live up to its name.

There very good. It’s sounds like you like Heath bars not the tea but the candy bar so I think you’d enjoy Skor.

Bio

I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
