There were popping noise while steeping! It was surprising.

This was a sample pack I choose when I placed my last order online.

I believe it may have done better with a bit of honey, it wasn't as gingery as I was expecting from the name and was a nice tea to keep me on my toes as it cycled through various pleasant flavors.

Resteep: very light, mainly lemongrass water
