I won this in the weekly (Monday) twitter contest @ShantiTea - they also have contests on their ShantiTea facebook page. I was able to pick out any tea I wanted when I won.

I don't like that I am unable to find the ingredients list.

I choose this one for the name, and also because I have enough caffeinated teas and needed more caffeine free choices.

This is a ho-hum kind of tea, it's not bad but it doesn't stand out in any way.

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
