    I’ve been hooked to coffee for as long as I’ve known it and when I tried to replace it with green tea, it did not work out so well.

  2. Great Tea Flavors

    Great tea flavors, perfectly sized for a little over one cup of tea. The Green Mango Peach and the Lemon tea flavors are my favorites. The box that it comes in is nice so I’d definitely consider giving this to a friend as a gift. I will definitely buy from this company again, especially since they have a variety of other tea flavors.

    Got a bag to try it and have been pretty happy with it so far. Typical green tea…not too many stems.
