This tea set looks like it is very high end but unfortunately it was delivered in patterned saran wrap looking plastic and the tea is bagged in brown paper packets. BEWARE it is not in tea bags! You need a tea set to stew this tea if you dont want to be swallowing herbs. It comes with three flavors and is not any better tasting that an average tea you can buy in the store. I am not any kind of tea connoisseur however so to a more refined palate the experience may be different. I had purchased it as a gift but ended up keeping it because it looked cheap.
