This company and its reviewers seem to talk a lot more about where their teas come from than they do about the tea itself (hmmm…). With good reason. I figured I’d give it a try anyway, being sort of a hippie, but this green is a particularly boring one and what flavors do come through are sort of unpleasant. Like a nasty, bitter citrus flavor. On the other hand, 10 cents of every purchase go to a “good cause” (I honestly hate that term; but if you’re into saving the Himalayan Kingdom, I guess you’ll dig it). Too bad they couldn’t back it up with a good tea.
