The quality of the tea is excellent. The flavor is good and the tea does not become bitter if it is steeped too long.

Let your food be your medicine and let your medicine be your food. This particular herb has a unique aroma and a unique taste. There is a discernible aftertaste that is quite pleasant, though I can only compare it to Lan Gui Ren oolong. Overall, another low-priced, good-tasting herbal.

This gynostemma tea tastes a bit like seaweed with a candy-like flavor too. It isnt bitter like the store bought one I got a little while ago. But most of all, after drinking this tea I was able to doze off quite naturally when I took a nap. I have been having sleep related problems.

This herb tea is interesting to me. The taste is mildly sweet like stevia or licorice root(gan cao), with lingering bitter flavor. The aroma is strong much like an herbal liqueur. Its claim as a longevity tonic can be disputed; but I do feel in better spirits when I drink this tea.

I havent had much herbal teas before and found this to be hard to drink- the sweet and bitter flavor from the recommended steep time was no good for me. However, I decided to try again and steeped one spoonful for a little less than a minute and got a more pleasant cup that was less bitter and slightly creamy sweet. With a less steeping time, this was great for multiple infusions, a great evening tea for nights when I cant fall asleep and as a ice tea! Will purchase again!
