First impressions: attractive, fun packaging and the amount of tea is impressive. Second impression after opening the tin: mmmmmmmm, smells so good and I can't wait to try it. The actual tea? I love that it is strong enough. I hate weak tea and this delivers. The taste is very good. You taste the peppermint and licorice but the flavors are perfect, not overpowering. I drink it hot but you could easily drink it iced as well. It has a unique, very good flavor and these would make great gifts for tea lovers.
