Really wish it came with a dropper
I do like this product, I sometimes mix it in with my green clay to do a mask, and I've used it directly on my skin with no adverse effects, but I do wish it came with a dropper to help control the amount that's coming up. I don't like just pouring it out but I don't like to stick anything else into it, so I'm dealing with it. It's a good product, but could use different packaging.
Delicious, if not smooth
I really do enjoy this tea, I just wish that it would dissolve a bit better. I always end up with small chunks. I know a lot of people use this in smoothies, which would alleviate the problem, if you're using a blender, but I just like to make tea. Nice flavour, for sure. A great pick-me-up halfway through the day.

This is an excellent case. I ordered two, one for AM and one for PM, and iHerb even sent me two different colours. I take up to seven pill supplements each day, and the compartments can hold all seven.
You can't beat this price
These are awesome. I take them every other day because I take a tocopherol every day as well as fish oil, but I notice I feel a bit "off" whenever I forget to take them. Thanks iHerb, you're keeping me healthy!
Wish the holes were a bit smaller
I don't use a lot of bombillas so I don't know if this is pretty standard, but I use this for my yerba mate and I get quite a bit of tea coming through the strainer. Maybe that has to do with the tea, because there's a bit of powdery bits in it, I just wish this filtered out a little more. I do really like to use it with regular loose teas, and it works great for those.
Way too sweet.

I managed to put two drops into a full drink and it was still too sweet, and you're supposed to use a full dropper. Not my idea of a great supplement. If you like things really, REALLY sweet, this may be for you.
So much control
This is great. I add calendula when I need to be soothed, tea tree oil when I need to keep clean, and a little extra water when I want it to spread easier. It works, it doesn't have any weird smells, and it's just the pure product.

The smell is wonderful, the taste is quite interesting, and the texture is great. Really pleased with this product. Works awesomely as a moisturizer as well, but I'm mostly excited about adding it to my chocolate.
Hot lemon drop

A mug of hot water, a teaspoon of lemon juice, and a drop or two of this, and you've got an awesome warm drink. I used to like hot water with lemon and honey, but this is an excellent replacement, and this way I can cut the honey (and all that sugar) out, and still really enjoy it.
I like this, it's a good brand, good price, I take it every morning on an empty stomach. If you're going to start taking supplements, add this one to your list.
Move over mint, there's a new herbal in town...

As I write this, the product is sold out, and I'm not surprised. This tea has such a wonderful, delicate flavour. I enjoy it in the evening after dinner, or just while relaxing. I don't even take the leaves out, and I've found that it never gets too strong, and is never bitter. Highly recommend this tea. It definitely has that basil flavour to it, but basil is one of my favourite herbs, so it's perfect for me.
Edited Review: my eyes are wide open

Initially, I gave this product a 3-star review. After trying it a little less strong, I had to give it another star. I don't use a gourd, but I do use a bombilla. The first steeping of this one should be as brief as possible. I just put a bit of cold water in my mug before adding the hot water, and down the first one fairly quickly. After you get to the second and third (I usually get at least a fourth infusion as well), the flavour is much milder and the mint comes through a lot more. I've actually started drinking this tea fairly regularly, both because it's a bit of a jump-start, and also because it supposedly has some immune-boosting funcitons. It's a good tea.
