Almost the same flavor and aroma as the regular stuff but you can't hide the nastiness of Valerian Root! Unfortunately, the added pungency of the (sweaty gym socks scented) Valerian Root does NOT help the regular stuff make me sleep. Better off sticking with the regular stuff.

This tea is so good that I asked the ratetea.net guys to add it to their database!

It's a wonderful black tea (So, you get a pretty good caffeine hit from it.) that is made even better with just the right amount of apricot flavoring. The apricot flavoring is strong enough so that it doesn't disappear behind the Ceyl...

This is a solid breakfast, wake-up tea! Citrus and cinnamon notes of the aroma grab your attention right away. The flavor matches the aroma - top notch.
