I used to drink gallons of this when I lived in the States. I recently bought five different Zhena's varieties from Well.ca, but something has changed... maybe they've got a different formula, or I've been spoiled by the loose leaf teas like the ones from Tea Farm on vancouver island. The Zhena's best-by dates were in the future yet they taste kind of stale, a little more like artificial flavorings and less like fresh, earthy rooibos and green tea. Well, I still appreciate that these are conveniently bagged, but I don't think I'll reorder.
I didn't think this was *that* toothpastey. Actually I've taken to adding fresh mint from my garden to make it even mintier.
