i just watched about a dozen youtube vids and read a bit also on this
a couple of people said the Pheonix tears taste better, and also said the Lifeberry was not as good.

Now, this could be due to tastes, and also growing conditions, minerals etc...
Also, the Pheonix tears did not produce as much.

Goji berries are not the sweetest fruit there is.
and they are MUCH better when dried.

Also...
There are 2 major types.
Lycium barbarum or Lycium chinense
Most saying Barbarum is sweeter/better tasting.
(also produces less maybe ?)

some good info here.
