    I got my sample in the mail and made a cup today. It tastes like Taster's Choice, ok for what it is I guess.

      I tried a sample and thought it was quite a bit better than Taster's Choice, although I used a flavored "creamer" product with it so that may have masked the actual flavor. I'd use it in a pinch, although the single-cup coffee pot I use at home is so quick and easy there's really no point in instant.

      Ugh. Are you kidding me?

      I think they would do better to introduce boba tea instead. I love boba tea.

        I hope they will give out samples. If it's as good as they say, I'd keep a jar in the house.
