The sample, yes. My pocketbook cannot support a habit of me drinking this with any regularity.
I really enjoyed drinking this. It made me feel quite invigorated. It had a great smell to it as well. Kinda flowery, grassy, and something like plum or some other fruity scent. It gave me a wonderful warm feeling all the way up my head.
