I gave this as a gift for someones birthday. She loved that it had literary quotes. My only concern is the back of the product says "Bag lady". I know they mean tea bags but when she opened it to see this saying it came across as calling her an old bag for her birthday. It's only on one side, so I had a 50/50 chance as to which side she would see first. Anyway once she flipped it over she loved it.

The box says "Bag Lady Tea," which makes it a difficult gift to give. There are few women who would want to receive an item that infers they are a bag lady - and no men. Take that phrase off the box and you have a real winner!

                  I bought this for my sister for her birthday. She works at the library, so these teas were perfect! She loved them! She said they taste great and they tell a great story on each tea tab. What a great conversation piece.
