This firm blend of loose leaf tea has earned the right to its name. What else can you call the quietly noble mission of proving that a hearty black tea that is utterly without pretension or frills can be elevated to a place of favor? And not just favor, but a sense that the tea trade's finest effects were on bringing together a world of common ground based on this beloved herbal drink.

I won't claim to be an expert in nuisances of black teas, but I found Good Life's decaf English breakfast to be more flavorful and consistent than others I have tried. And I appreciate the customer service and personal touches, including individual tastes of related teas that accompanied my order. I will return.
There was a little green note, hand-written, within the package of loose leaf tea. As in straight in the tea. "what are you thankful for?" Not that...
I haven't tried the tea and honestly I may not ever. Cute idea, I guess, but a total turn off for me, esp now. Realize not a huge risk but I don't like this at all....
