My very first loose black tea-that’s not in a teavana blend. When I first got this I just thought, oh this tastes like regular black tea. I liked it, but I wasn’t so sure there was a difference between black loose tea and the stuff in the bags I get at the supermarket. Until I decided to just have a cup of black tea at work (lipton) and I could taste how bitter and unfresh it was. This has a brighter taste to it, fresher, and made me want to keep drinking. It also makes some great sweet tea, and is nice unsweetened too. I got it in the mystery tea for my bday and once I’ve used it all up, I will definitely be looking into ordering again. Yummy. Forgot to add i get two great steeps and one ok one with this.
