I got this at a very discounted price a couple of weeks ago, so I’m betting this was an older batch of tea. It was okay, but I found it to be a little bitter even after I played with the steeping times. It didn’t make me a sudden convert to Teavana, and I certainly would never pay the full price for this tea. I definitely have just been drinking it for the caffeine boost in the morning. Not a tea I can lose myself in drinking.
