This was one of two samples I ordered from design a tea. The tea was lackluster and smelled much stronger and interesting and delicious than it tasted. It tasted weak and plain.
At this point I am not very enthusiastic about the second sample I got, but we'll see.
Post-Steep Additives: none
Resteep: very weak and watery, plain rooibos, hints of vanilla in the smell and aftertaste
