It sounded so wonderful in the description but it is disappointing in person. The tea is harsh and, while the spices are fragrant in the bag, their flavor rapidly falls away once the hot water is poured upon the leaves.

That is easily the biggest letdown for me when it comes to tea [the lack of flavor when the hot water comes to the party]. Hate it hate it hate it.

Could the water be too hot maybe?

Carolyn

It asks for 212 degree water and that is what I provided.

I’m a suddenly enthusiastic tea aficionado. I had no idea how varied and delicious teas could be. Also I’m a dairy-free vegetarian, so if you see me say “cream” or “milk” it means soy milk or soy cream.
