The original magical scent of the tea is gone after two years (or perhaps it’s just the much lower humidity during winter), but I was not a very diligent drinker of the 16oz bag. The energy is still good, though! Could it be… the caffeine? Those drinking bulk darj should consider buying empty disposable teabags. The amount of fine dust that floats on top even after multiple filtering sessions is distracting and can contribute to a sore throat, but can be largely solved by using disposables.
