i love this tea. it has a wonderful bright and clean/crisp flavor. i particularly enjoy it iced. currently arguing with my tea-mates about whether or not this tea is picked by monkeys still. teavana says it just refers to a legend, however i read in a book that there are still families in a remote and small region that still train monkeys to pick the leaves.

i like this tea hot (and okay, sometimes even cold). plain, green from china, a little bit of a nutty undertone. it’s not too strong/vegetal and it’s not too weak – it’s a nice middle ground. great for anyone still breaking into plain green tea

delicious. it took me a while to come around but this tea is sweet and the toasted rice makes it so unique (and delicious). it does kind of remind me of smacks cereal, but i like that.

I love this tea. I read somewhere that it won an award but it didn’t come up in my googling, today. It is sensitive to time and temperature, but when made right, it has a wonderful nutty flavor!

honeybush is great way to help get over a cold. it’s an expectorant so it helps break up the gross mucus in lungs when you’re sick. it mixes well with a lot of flavors…not that i couldn’t drink it by itself all day…
