What Harney and Sons say about this tea:

This Love Life tea, aptly named for GMHC’s slogan and logo, is a blend of Bancha green tea with strawberry, coconut, vanilla, and puffed rice. 50% of the sales from this tea will be donated back to GMHC, an organization fighting to end the AIDS epidemic and uplift the lives of all affected.

Here is what I think


Love life had to be a tea that caught my attention. This tea has a lovely strawberry vanilla scent that matches it’s flavor. This is a mild refreshing tea that is good hot or cold (yes, I put it on ice and loved it).


What I liked


Did you see there is puffed rice in this tea? I love that very slight flavor that puffed rice puts in a tea. This tea is mild and has a lovely flavor. Both hot and cold is a real winner for many of my tea lovers.


What I did not like


Nothing, love it and it’s unique and I loved that too!


Until next sip pinkies up and face the wind! You got this!
