A wonderful herbal tea with great flavor. I strongly prefer the sachets because as a loose leaf tea, this tea's fine pieces are difficult to clean up or strain out (and with sachets I don't infuse the strong flavors into my tea pot or sieve)
I myself am not a lover of brisk teas. I was eyeing this tea for awhile and bough myself a sample. It was given a briskness of 1 but I'd give it a briskness of 3 or 4. The flavors were nice, I was getting hints of apple and a bit of cinnamon with the plum. Maybe it would be better iced, but I won't be buying anymore of it.
Absolutely best tasting fruit based tea I have ever had. I LOVE the flavor, it is sweet tasting and doesnt need any sugar. I do use a bit of raw honey in mine at times though for the boost in anti-oxidants. The ginseng in this is really helping with my energy and focus during the day and doesnt cause me the jitters or to lose sleep. This is my go-to tea for stamina and bountiful flavor. Hands down my favorite, I cant keep enough of it in stock! So yummy. I have made this with both the loose tea blend and the sachets. I do find that the lose tea is small and can escape the tea ball, but I just wet the tea ball first to minimize escaping tea grounds, so problem settled. I will never look at another brand of organic passion plum becaue HT is my first and last stop for the best teas around. By the way, I found HT while vacationing in Cape Cod years ago, and was smitten with it, and searched for it after running out. Thank you HT!!
