smells delicious but was a weak flavor, though a strong after taste. Perhaps it needed to brew longer? I think adding sweetener or creme would kill the flavor. It was a nice tea, and a gift from JaneFan

Post-Steep Additives: none

Resteep 2: 8 minutes i think, was a bit less aromatic and a little more bitter, but was still a good cup of tea

Resteep 3: had to snick my nose in it to smell it, a little more bitter, but was still a good cup of tea, no longer an aftertaste, many minutes because it's still in my cup

Rating: 1.5/3
