Seems like good value. I like that it's organic since a lot of pesticides are found in tea these day. The quality is not great and the flavor is variable and I do believe some of them are tea bags containing other types of tea. When this happens I dump my cup and try another bag. Not sure how fresh it is either- that actually may be the problem. However, other tea companies have discontinued their Kukicha products and I feel this is the best value out there for Kukicha.
