I first tried this tea when my boyfriend had an assortment of flavors from honestly like 10 years ago that they forgot about after moving. It was still amazing, even for how long they've had it stored for. I live in Sedro Woolley and have either made sure to visit the store and/or stock up online just for this tea. Yes, it's pricier and the people around me get a complex like it should only be for special occasions, but this tea is amazing. It is my perfect blend of chai where it isn't too overwhelming in a spice and still tastes warm and flavorful, almost like a mini dessert. It's literally my favorite tea ever.
