Great tea, easy to make
I love how simple this is to make and store in the fridge. I’ll definitely be buying again.
First time with trying Chinese medicinal herbs and I will be back for more!
Delicious and refreshing tea! I love reading about each element in the handy description card that comes with the herbal blend. Thanks!
Takes the mystery out of herbal tea
Drinking this tea makes me feel healthy and it tastes delicious! The information cards included in the package takes the mystery out of the ingredients, and explains exactly what each herb is. I love Chinese herbal teas but not reading Chinese always made it hard to know what to buy. This totally hit the spot!
Growing up in sg, i remember being able to very conveniently get a glass of hot herbal tea from the chinese medicinal hall when i feel like i am coming down with a sore throat... this tastes just like one of the more palatable "cooling tea" so happy to be able to make it myself at home.
