I love this tea! It has a light floral aroma and taste. I love drinking it as my morning tea, it is a very gentle tea. The tea itself is lovely, with dried flowers. I love the attention to detail and customer service from this company, there is a tiny handwritten message in the packs of tea, and I got several free samples of new teas I want to try. I'm so glad I found this company.
I found this adorable shop while visiting friends in Upperstate NY on a local Wine Walk. That was about 2014 I believe. Kyoto cherry rose is added to all of my green teas. It adds just the right amount of magic to bring Yerba and Special Gunpowder to life! So delicious! Try this blend, you can thank me later ;)
Very mild and flavorful tea. Not too strong, but great for after dinner or on a cold night. I’ve tried many teas over the years, and this is a nice evening tea.
This is delicious tea and I received FABULOUS customer service! After having made an error in my address when ordering, Susan stayed in touch and kept tabs on my order until it arrived, just a little late. I'll definitely order again and confidently recommend Good Life.
I made an error in giving my address and even though I went to the post office the day after you shipped to alert them, the tea has never arrived.
