Gift from janefan, I have a feeling the air got to it a bit as the smell was weak and everyone else seems to have been hit by a strong smell. However, the taste and aftertaste were truly a sugar cookie, very delicious! I am so glad I got to try this tea. My coworkers seem to love it too.

Post-Steep Additives: none

Resteep: even after 10 minutes it was too weak to bother with. I would deem this not resteepable.

Rating: 2/3
