Not a big fan of the taste. I’m not really fond of chamomile. However, as a relaxing tea, it works OK.

I like this tea, however, I love licorice and that is the main flavor I get from this. It is a good evening tea because there is no caffiene, so I drink it before bed.

Flavors: Grass, Licorice, Sweet

A pretty good chai. I like the sachet. It is roomy enough to get a good flow. This is a bit blander than some other chai I have. I like a spicy blend and add milk and honey, so I want something that doesn’t get washed out.

Archaeologist and tea enthusiast.

I’ve been drinking tea most of my life. I think I started in the late 1970’s when I was in junior high. Of course, then it was just Lipton. I graduated to Constant Comment and thought I was hot stuff.

Now, I take my tea seriously. Since I can’t drink coffee, it is my go-to drink. I start the day with a good Assam or English Breakfast blend, then move on to some Dragonwell green, white, or herbal. It’s all good!
