First thing first, A Very fresh tea. As soon as I opened the bag, a wonderful aroma greeted me. The tea tastes great. It has a little note of natural sweetness to it. My husband asked if I put sugar in it. There is also just a nice, balanced finish. I've been ordering from this brand frequently, and their teas are truly amazing. Sagarmatha Gold and Ruby oolong to name a few are my must-have teas. Prior to this, I had used tea bags (sometimes Lipton sometimes more expensive brands), however, this is beyond night and day. I love this tea.
