Bought at a T J Maxx along with my new green tea pot. Was surprised at the round little bags that held the tea – it turned out that this was a great idea; more surface area and no annoying strings or tags!
When I made it, I forgot that I had left the bag in and ended up letting it steep for over twenty minutes. Worrying about bitterness, I took a drink – and was astonished at the absolutely sumptuous taste of the tea. I felt no desire to add any sugar to it, and I sipped it all night, and when I found I had had enough left over to drink the next day, I took it out of the house, luke warm, and nursed off of it eagerly.
The flavor is rich, the smell is exquisite, and the color is absolutely dark, rich, and beautiful. If not for the fact that it’s not regularily stocked in my local grocery store, I would love to keep this always in my pantry.
