I first started with a sample but liked it so much that I ordered a full-size portion immediately. I really enjoy this tea, especially on a cold, rainy morning. I brew at 180 for 5 minutes and stir in a bit of stevia. I have tried with milk as well and like that too but as I drink at my desk at work, I do not often have milk. I needed a change in my daily green tea repertoire and this hits the mark perfectly.
