Meh, it tastes good enough to drink, and is a bit more of a peppy tea than most caffeine free blends. I don't love it, I don't hate it. I think it needs to be a tea complimenting something, lemon cookies perhaps, rather than the main attraction.

Rating: 2/4 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
