I think it tastes better hot than cold (left it in the car in the summer).

Got this drink at "The last hope" and "The next hope" and on various visits to NYC Resistor.

At first I wasn't happy about it, but I needed the caffeine for the convention, and it is true you get used to it. I drink it for the caffeine and for the memories.

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
