I purchased this from well.ca on a whim since I love Christmas, and I love green tea. The bags smell delicious! I was so excited to try a mug! After letting it steep for about five minutes, I tried it... and didn't like it. Even after drinking a full cup, I wasn't used to the taste of it. The aftertaste, I decided, was excellent: very fresh and pepperminty. The actual taste of the tea took time to adjust to. I had another cup in the afternoon since I was determined to like it, and now that I'm drinking my third cup and I know what to expect, I love it. This isn't your typical green tea. If you like the bitterness of green tea, then this may not be for you. But hey, I ended up loving it (after two cups) and I recommend it to anyone who likes the taste of peppermint/candy canes. It really tastes like you've been snacking on candy canes, but instead of filling your mouth with sugar and chemicals, you've had the guilt-free experience of drinking some lovely, all-natural holiday tea.
