After seeing some reviews of long wait in shipping, I was happy to see it delivered a few days after ordering. There are 100 individual sealed tea bags, so it should keep fresh a little longer. The tea had good flavor, good taste, which is the most important. I'm happy with the taste, better than the weak taste of Twinning. These 100 bags were loose, in a box, so that was a surprise that it wasn't better packaged. That box would take up too much space in the shelf, so I put them in another plastic bag and threw out that box.
