Yep, I'm actually drinking some Sweet Iced Green Mint Tea right now. The whole package is pretty cool, and if you're the kind of person who enjoys tea and hot beverages, I highly recommend it. Obviously not every joe on Woot is going to want this, so the disdain is understandable, but it's a good deal.
The green tea flowers are good, but a specialty tea shop would still have better. The sheer amount of tea is really the bargain here, and the fact that they're tea flowers. One of the more enjoyable features is the "combo pack" it comes with, which includes a bag of rose buds, chamomile, mint, green tea, white tea, and black tea--you can mix and match them for really good brews.
As far as the pot goes, it's pretty basic stuff, not very high quality. The glass used for it is so light I'm afraid the temperature extreme will break it, and it gets pretty damn hot, but it works--a bit small though.
WARNING you now though, don't heat this up on the actual stove even though it says you can, you're going to bust that thing up something awful.
