This tea is great. It's easy to make, economical, and tastes wonderful. It has a delicious nutty flavor that sets it apart from most other teas, making it a great introduction to tea for non-tea drinkers. My youngest brother, age 11 has loved this tea since I introduced it to him 3 years ago, and several people who had never liked tea before tried it and enjoyed it. From then on, I was able to introduce other teas to them simply because it introduced them to a different taste than most teas people in America know. A truly wonderful product!
