Gift from the loverly SoccerMom I had it on my shopping list so she sent me some.

It's yummy, but very light, luckily this, my first cup of tea for the day, was around lunch time. This is not a kick you awake tea, it's more a sip while nibbing something and relaxing tea.

Rating: 3/4 leaves

Leaf system:
1=Bleh! not again if it were free
