I have no business continuing to drink this tea. I’ve had it for 8+ years. Seriously. I’m not kidding about that.
But the tin it’s in is sealed really tightly and believe it or not, the flavor and scent are still in tact. Not bad for a cheap-o black tea I bought a pound of for a mere $5.
I have fond memories of this tea, originally drinking it in college, when I was just starting my tea exploration. Sometimes it just does the trick.
