Overall this was not a great tea at all. I used no sugar and steeped for just above 2 minutes at 170 degrees. Although I fiddled the temperature around with no success.
The tea smells nice and is almost fruity.
Everything comes crashing down in the flavor though. It tastes like I took old vegetable broth and poured it into a teacup.
In the end, though, you get what you paid for at about 5cents a cup (with a double steeping).
