If it weren’t for this tea being about 3-4 years old, I would probably have liked it a little more. That being said, the tea had a very herbal fragrance (think traditional chinese medicine store smell), and an obvious sweetness to the brew. My personal feeling is that no tea should come pre-sweetened (I know a great deal of people who would disagree!!). So, I’m going to have to go with my personal and highly subjective (and possibly misinformed due to the tea’s age) opinion, and say this tea was not one I would want to be sipping throughout the day. If I were sick on the other hand, and this was my medicine, I would be happy to take it!
