Bought at Mitsuwa

Served iced from the bottle, I think it's a good prepared, store bought, iced tea.

I would buy it again as a pre-made, but not as a preferential to loose leaf.

Rating: 3/4 leaves

Leaf system:
1=Bleh! not again if it were free
2=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
3=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
4=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
