Offering a plethora of health benefits and a great variety of flavors, Stash teas are great way to explore the world of tea. I have had the pleasure of drinking several of these exciting teas and found that they each offered a perfect balance of flavor, color, and aroma. The Green Tea and Chai Spice were are two of my favorite Stash teas. I drink my tea without adding anything and found both of these teas to be smooth and flavorful.
