I found this to be pleasant, though I admit, it’s been many months since I last had any. I had picked some up to take to a friend as a gift, but…well, I pilfered a small amount to test, you know, for quality and such. I think it was pretty smooth, and not too strong in either direction. It wasn’t an explosion in my mouth of WOW! but sometimes I dig the milder and smoother tea blends.
