While this isn’t the finest tea Rishi sells (as many have said here) it is pretty common in grocery stores, so it is something I can recommend to a friend who wants to buy something new (i.e. not Lipton teabags) that isn’t hard to find or very expensive. Personally, this was a gateway tea for me in a sense. At the time, I didn’t have any loose leaf teas, and didn’t even know that there were different kinds of oolong teas (!). After trying this tea, my spark of an interest in tea snowballed into the daily hobby I enjoy today. I still keep a tin of it on hand for everyday use and using when experimenting with iced/chilled teas.
