A delightfully smooth and rich herbal tea experience! I have gotten at least 2 to 3 steeps out of this tea. The licorice, peppermint and dandelion tastes really come through. I’m such a novice tea drinker, so I don’t know how to describe the complex combination of flavors, but all of the herbs work together, balanced in delicious harmony. It’s fantastic iced or warm. I’ll be buying more of this soon.

I picked up this tea at the reduced bin at my local Sunflower Market. The price was very nice for the 1.7 oz I got. I know it’s important for some tea consumers, so I’ll note, this tea is organic.
This tea was a bit tricky for me at first. My first brew was made per the instructions on the bag. This was a bit of a bad idea as it has the steep temp. at 185 degrees. This was far too long for my tastes. My second brew was at a much lower 160 degrees, which was too low! It was very bland tasting. The sweet spot for me when brewing this tea has been around 170 degrees for only 3 min. The end product, when brewed well, is a very nice chai like flavor. There are good notes of the promised mango. Overall I was impressed with the product, given the amount of money I spent on it. I would definitely buy other teas or more of this one from this company!
