Brewed 5 tea bags worth, loose, in 16 ounces boiled water for 3 minutes with stirring. (This amounts to only 5.9 grams of tea, so the mean weight per bag was only 1.18 grams, not 1.5 grams as on the label.) Dark red tea liquor. Tasted at room temperature: Strong black tea flavor with slight astringency. No perceptible rose flavor or aroma.
