Delicious! The aroma when you open the tin is delightful, it doesn’t have any of that sort of bitterness that green tea can sometimes have. Really great!

Delicious tea! Known as ‘feel better’ tea among our kids- this is what comes out at the hint of a cold. A great balance between the lemon and the ginger- one does not overpower the other. A regular in our house.
