The standard tea bags are wrapped in paper, so if they're not put into an airtight container, they'll probably start to go stale before the box of 100 is finished. The dry tea looks like a blend of orthodox and CTC produced teas and smells smoky, malty and a bit like fresh straw.

The brewed tea is disappointing. There's still the smoky quality, but instead of a maltiness, the tea just smells kind of sour, like damp leaves. There's a mild bitterness and astringency, but the flavor's thin and again, a little sour. There's some maltiness there, but it's fleeting. The best thing that can be said is that the tea is mild. It's less bitter than Lipton, but also less flavorful. It reminds me in both appearance and character of Tetley. It's not exactly bad, but it's definitely lackluster. When the tea cools off, the flavor is a little more pronounced, but still lacks any sort of depth or complexity.

At $2 for 100 tea bags (totalling 8 ounces of tea), this is one of the cheapest teas I've ever tasted. Unless cost is your only criterion, though, I'd still recommend something else.
