Pricey, but tastes good

Is this really ceremony grade and organic? I don’t think I should be the critic b/c I probably couldn’t tell. I order items online all the time, but I wonder if this is the real deal. I drink it mostly for the health benefits and can’t really tell if it’s worth the money. The company website looks amateur and makes me question this product. However, it does taste good. Better when first brewed hot (not boiling) and then refrigerated or added to other cold foods/drinks.
