I originally picked up the small packet because my father-in-law enjoys apricot tea. At almost 90, he doesn’t adapt well to change so he went back to his normal routine. Not one to waste anything, he sent the tea back to me. This is an example of letting a great moment pass by. I think it would have been great fresh but now needs a little something else at this point. I plan to use it for ice tea and add a little mint.
