Although I hate to give such a negative review as the service from Firebox was extremely good, I find myself unable to stop doing so.
This tea is not nice. I can only imagine that due to the star rating it has and the description on the site that I have a 'dodgy' sample.
I am not new to loose leaf tea by any means, but this is the first one I have tried that tastes like peas. While some people might like peas, myself included, I don't like them enough to have their flavour encroach on my cuppas!
That said, I highly recommend using Firebox to buy anything else, their service really is good!
