From what I have read it seems that this is not a favorite. I like this tea when I go to starbucks. I have it with steamed soy and sweetened. It’s a morning tea to me, I prefer not to have it in the evenings, so if I get a chance to stop at a starbucks in the am or early afternoon I choose the china green tips misto (misto=starbucks for using bagged tea to make a tea-latte).
