Got this as a free sample. Its not bad. Not sure why it gets such harsh reviews. No its not like Davids Tea and does not have a ton of flavor oils in it and no banana pieces floating about but it is smooth, non astringent, no bitterness and it tastes slightly of fresh ripe banana. The flavor however IS lacking a bit. Still its not bad just a subtle tea. I would not buy it again as there are many other teas I would prefer more but its not terrible.
